🌱 Information vs. Attention

I saw this in the Building a Second Brain book:

What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence wealth of information creates a poverty of attention...

- Herbert Simon

This article also mentions that quote.

Such idea made me remember something said by Scott Hanselman in his famous talk about productivity:

The less you do, the more of it you can do.

Somehow it also made me remember this:

Decision Making

Os grandes tomadores de decisão não são aqueles que processam a maior quantidade de informação possível naem aqueles que usam uma grande quantidade de tempo analisando, mas sim aquels que aperfeiçoaram a arte de filtrar poucos fatores importantes dentre um grande número de variáveis.
