We are inundated with too much information on a daily basis. If you stop and think about it, the flow to our brains of daily data is enormous. With the advent of technology, too much information is a reality. Take the internet for example. There are countless articles relating to the news, weather, crime and world events. Then, you combine the articles providing information on health, anti-aging, overall well being, along with studies as to what is healthy; how to improve your eating habits and, of course, methods to lose weight. If anyone had the time to read each and every article, they wouldn’t be able to eat, sleep, or even work. On top of all that is the celebrity gossip. Not to mention now, in many countries, up coming elections. If you turn on the television you can access several channels that offer news, stock reports, and more data giving programming. How much can we possibly absorb? Not enough to make good choices for almost anything. One article can contradict the next article so that you end up wondering which facts are accurate. Then, if you do research, you may discover additional facts which supersede all the data you originally read. Often, you will hear one person say to another person in a conversation, “Stop! This is too much information.” It is generally referring to personal statements about possible events. Adult children seem to say it to their parents. In school, children tend to think that if they present the teacher too much information on a project that they won’t read it all. They believe that they will receive a higher grade simply by overloading the teacher with reading material. In the end, however, many teachers find that too much information is overkill and the student ends up with a lower grade. The same principle applies when writing an essay. Students believe that if they just fill up the pages that the teacher or professor will get tired of all the reading and they will receive the higher grade. Again, it doesn’t always work because they are looking for content and substance. In the Good Gus Series the only place you could gain knowledge was the library. Even then, the majority of the books were donations so there wasn’t a problem of too much information. When dealing with beneficiaries or heirs, do not give them too much information. They will use it against you and make your job difficult. Be careful and read “Misplaced Trust” at maecharlesbooks.com or on Kindle, Nook, Apple I-Books, 24 Symbols, and several of the popular I-Book websites. The Good Gus Series, volumes one and two, are available on Kindle.
