I think have a syndrome that is a symptom of the Information Age. It’s called SNOS. Or, Shiny New Object Syndrome.
You probably know what I mean. Here are the symptoms:
- It starts with getting all organized and beginning to efficiently “consume” information.
- You read a lot and only filter a few that seem interesting or useful.
- A great idea, book, system, e-class, webinar, app is discussed.
- You go down a rabbit-hole and research it, like it, read the reviews, and decide it’s relevant to you or your business.
- Pretty soon, you’ve downloaded the system, book, app or signed up for the e-book, e-class, or webinar.
You are officially suffering from SNOS when you have 15 or more ideas that are started and not finished. You begin to feel overwhelmed. You lose track of all these SNOS’s that you are working on. And sometimes you shut down.

Stop back next Tuesday, October 16 to start talking about managing SNOS.
One of my SNO’s from last year… Learning low-tech metal-smithing.
