Winning the Information Game

Even though we live when images dominate.  We also live in a time of lots of words - they stream, pop-up, interrupt and most of all excite.  Those that study media habits and who monitor use of media in our society talk about the scare resource today - attention.  We are not lacking in information but in which bits of news, findings, reports etc. that can catch our attention.   We do, personally, need a strategy.

When you hear something - step back and think.  Are they wrapped in a highly charged environment?  Are they accompanied by emotional outburst?  If so, what does that mean?  Don't react to the message immediately - allow yourself time.  Listen the words again.  Think about them.  Use discernment.
