The point of this post is to say that social conditions continue to degrade because there are too many causes, battles, emergencies, crises, tweets, posts, emails, notifications, popups, campaigns, petitions …. it’s bullshit. Nobody can keep up with this onslaught.
It’s a cognitive denial of service attack, sucking your energy, causing emotional and mental exhaustion.
So instead ……
Pick your battles and dive deep into them so you can be effective.
Turn off notifications.
Unsubscribe to all those advocacy newsletters except for one or two.
Stop posting and start talking to people.
Maximize your effectiveness every day.
Stop reading this email and get to it.
