We live in a wondrous moment in history. We have more information at our fingertips than our ancestors could ever imagine. But limitless information is also a curse. Too much information leads to indecision, inability to focus and mental numbness. We’ve all seen the symptoms of information overload time and again in our clients and in ourselves.

Successful people are those who learn to harness information in a way that propels them toward the fulfillment of their definite chief aim. Last week we discussed the first step in this process: how to clarify your definite chief aim. This week we’ll look at the next step: creating the space in which to manifest your heart’s desire.

I admit it, I was doing a little ego surfing a few weeks ago to see how my own internet marketing efforts were paying off.  A few pages into my search I started finding errors associated with me (Apparently I’m a geneticist – I never knew I served on the National Council for Genome Research!)

Curious, I did some checking and discovered that there’s a business search engine called Zoominfo. Zoominfo’s automated searchbots scour the internet for every scrap of information on professionals and professional organizations then centralize the information into a searchable, publicly accessible online database.
