We are all overloaded with “information.” It’s taking its toll.
Once upon a time we believed social media platforms would bring us greater intellectual freedom and more meaningful discourse.
Instead they turned out to be dumpsters for narcissism and conformation bias. They have delivered nihilism, censorship, increasing dependence, and endless (and pointless) discord.
Today information comes to us tangled up with opinion and conflict. Thus, the number of inputs we’re all encountering everyday causes mental fatigue and taxes our BS detectors.
Unfortunately we’re fatigued at a time where both misinformation and division are greater than ever before.
We are consuming more than we can utilize to create value, prosperity, and connection in our own lives.
We all know what it’s like to walk away from crucial conversations (virtual and face-to-face) wishing we had been better prepared and more persuasive.
Or at least, less reactive.
We know we are wasting too much time on consumption.
So how can you learn to better organize your thoughts, gather the right evidence, and make more persuasive presentations?
We need to be better navigators of these increasingly complex and dysfunctional communications and information arenas.
This means understanding how to:
- Clarify your worldview and align your efforts
- Develop a more critical mind and willingness to confront opposing ideas
- Build a custom toolbox of effective research skills
- Use your learning time more efficiently
- Gain the confidence to present publicly
- Find your best outlets for expression
We’re offering you a solution, but it’s not simply about having the tools win debates in person or (if you’re a crazy person) on the internet.
Consider that a side benefit.
