Dazed and Confused
Some people are a little confused and more information will give them clarity. Some
people are hopelessly confused and more information just makes it worse. Your university
training includes endless exercises in gathering, sorting, and prioritizing information.
When you graduate and are asked, “What did you learn in college?” the answer is not always
easy to explain, but one of the most important skills you will have learned involved ways
to process the stream of information that is constantly passing by us. Most of the
professional positions of the 21st Century require the ability to select, interpret, and
analyze information. So the next time you get irritated by an assignment, or feel that
you are being asked to “jump through another hoop,” instead think of it as another
opportunity to exercise and increase your skills in managing and organizing information.
