In Other Words, Prioritize

What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention, and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the overabundance of information sources that might consume it.
--Herbert Alexander Simon, economist, Nobel laureate (1916-2001)
