Information Overload

In the day & age of "24/7" news flow, a good plan can get clouded by bad media. With slogans of "We report it first" and "Breaking News," everyone wants to glamorize current events and sell advertising space. If this strategy was such a great idea, Al Gore would have been President by winning Florida a few years ago!

Unfortunately, all of this can be hazardous to your wealth!

Don't get caught up in the story de jour. News will ebb & flow on a daily basis. Stocks will have good/bad quarters. And, Wall Street will continue to climb the proverbial 'wall of worry'.

De-clutter your life and reduce news flow via television, radio and newspapers. Anything pertinent to your health/wealth/daily activities will be heard during your morning commute on the radio or discussed around the water cooler.

For many of us, this may be a tough this to change. We're creatures of pattern and tend to fill our day with repetition. However, if you could survive a few days of change, I think you'll find your day is more relaxing and peaceful.

Change can be a good thing!!!
