On Sunday, Pastor Doug talked about how the information streams out there are exploiting our psychology and they rely on our need for a dopamine hit to keep checking and going back to them like Pavlov’s dogs. He also talked about the overload of our working memory that keeps things from entering our long-term memory. God designed us with a natural way to learn that is being short-circuited by the method of information being offered. It is our job to recognize this and make the necessary adjustments to our mode of learning.
Question 1: In what ways are you guilty of information overload?
Question 2: What streams of information are guilty of overloading you (even if you enjoy them)?
Pick one piece of information you’ve read, heard, or watched in the last 24 hours and see if you can explain it to someone who has not seen it. If you have trouble doing it, you have information overload!
