“It is not a daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the inessentials.” –Bruce Lee

Prioritize Your Online Time — A signal-to-noise ratio is the power ratio between a signal of meaningful information and the background noise of useless information. That’s the technical definition. On a day-to-day basis, it can also refer to the ratio of really profound content to really unnecessary cat videos on Facebook. Today, pay attention to meaningful pieces of communication, and filter out all other background noise and distractions. Delete the promotional ads in your inbox, and unsubscribe from newsletters or magazines that distract you from what’s really important. Refrain from participating in idle gossip, and aimless browsing online. By prioritizing what streams of information to focus on, you are de-cluttering your mind space, which ultimately leverages your energy to address what really matters.
