“A wealth of information creates a poverty of attention.” – Herbert A. Simon
Coming from Nobel laureate Herbert A. Simon, a true polymath in an age of increasing specialization, this quote is a reminder for myself to fiercely guard my attention. There is endless stimuli coming at us incessantly. There is no possible way to absorb it all. There is simply not enough time, which is the world’s most valuable resource. However, the great thing about having little time is that you devote what do you have to the most important things in your life.
