How To Deal With Information Overload
A member posted this question in the free Facebook group:
I would like to know how do you deal with Information Overload. About business opportunities, there are a lot of it, bitcoin etc then how do I take action
Here’s my response…
First, if you’re unsure which business to pursue it’s likely due to you NOT knowing what your strengths are. For example, chances are you see all this opportunity to make money, but you cannot clearly see which ones are NOT for you.
In other words, there are a lot of ways to make money. The problem is most rookies don’t know what their natural strengths are… therefore, anything looks good. The veterans know what they’re good at, stick to it, and ignore everything else.
This is why I suggest you take the Gallup’s Strengths Finder Test to find out. Currently, it’s like $20. And it’s super helpful in making you understand what your natural talents are, how they can be used, and how others with similar talents have used them.
Now, once you have this information it becomes very clear which business opportunities will likely be a good fit for you, your talents, and how to use your talents to impact others at scale. For example, my strengths analysis clarified that I’d work well in marketing, analyzing patterns and data, and guess what? I DO paid advertising and marketing. And I took this report years after I’ve already chosen my path so I believe it to be accurate.
Secondly, if you narrow down to more than one business opportunity to choose from… then just choose one that calls out to you the most. You can’t get started if you don’t decide. So just pick one that you see yourself using your talents in, and one that you can pursue for the long haul. Remember, success is not ever an overnight thing. This is why I highly recommend you pursue opportunities that leverage your natural strengths. Chances are, you’ll enjoy it more, and put in the time to master it.
Third, ignore everything else. Once you choose something stick with it. This should be much easier if you followed the above steps. I also recommend that you find a role model, instructor, book, course, etc. that resonates with you the most in your selected business. And just stick to one and IMPLEMENT what you actually learn.
Hope that helps!
