Information is like the ocean. To avoid drowning in information, we need to learn when to surf the waves, when to swim, and when to dive deep.

    I love this idea! There are a lot of days when I KNOW I’m drowning! I’d like to keep surfing!

    Thanks, Fay. When you feel like you’re drowning, come up for air and take a breath!

    Hey Jane, what a fantastic blog theme you have going here. I always like to check out my fellow bloggers who have taken the time to visit me – but to find a gamut of relevant and valuable information like this ALL IN ONE PLACE! WOW!.
    Thanks so much for providing some amazing insight, not just in this post but throughout.
    I really love the 5F approach and will definitely link to you in future posts I write on the subject.
    (just a note – the optin box has the word ‘finding’ twice under the 5F rule)
    I look forward to seeing your future posts (albeit short and sweet like this one)

    Thanks, Alex! I appreciate your feedback (and I’ve fixed the typo; the last F is for filing).

    Jane…what a great saying. I love the analogy. Sometimes we just flail about trying to get out of the water – the sea of information. It only exhausts us. You’ve identified three other (and great) choices.
