About 75% of you is having trouble to cope with the digital overload. So if you are one of them, don't feel bad, you are no exception.
Digital overload is nothing new, but currently it’s worse than ever before. The pandemic and remote work created a desire to compensate for the lack of physical interaction. The result is an overload of Zoom meetings, too much information (emails, notifications, alerts), and too many online tools, all to make sure we don’t miss anything.
But by being online all the time, we are constantly ’on’. Creating the urge to respond to messages right away and making it hard to focus and get things actually done.
What are you doing to cope? Do you have any tips on how to handle the digital overload?

Are you working your ass off? That's something to be proud of—hard work typically means putting in a lot of hours. At least five days a week, and a minimum of eight hours a day. And, of course, those with serious ambitions will not shy away from taking on even more hours... right?
We all believe a great school report deserves a tenner, right? Well, I disagree. Here's why I believe that. And how that translates to separating salary from performance. Good performance brings its own rewards, and especially in the workplace.
Six years ago, we created our Bucket List of organizations, entrepreneurs, academics, and business leaders who changed the status quo of frustrating workplaces by becoming pioneers, rebels, and revolutionaries. Since then, we have been checking off our list by visiting pioneers all around the world. We share everything we learn from them through our articles here and in our Academy. However, we haven't been able to make any significant Bucket List travels for the last two years for obvious reasons. This is finally changing—we are going to Japan!
