I completely agree with the more knowledge the better. I think it’s great that you’re the type of person who can actually carry on a conversation and contribute new and interesting ideas.
The basis of this article focuses more on information that isn’t relevant to the task at hand. I see people trying to consume an abundance of information from multiple different outlets at the same time and it doesn’t seem to work. I think if we want to be receptive and able to retain new information we have to focus on one outlet at a time. If you’re reading an article on your laptop and looking every few minutes to check your phone, whatever is happening on your phone is acting as the irrelevant information.
Thank you for sharing your insight.
