How quickly we get overloaded with information

I signed up for the New York Times and Washington Post early AM email summaries a while ago.  I enjoyed the early morning synopsis of events just to get my day rolling.  After a while, I saw how many more optional bits of information I could get...headlines, opinion, "the scoop" etc...so I signed up for about 5 more email alerts.  Within 2 days I was reading NOTHING and deleting ALL of the emails.  I went from "comfy and happy" to "overwhelmed and frustrated" by TAKING what they were giving. 

I'm back now to 2 emails per day with stories and headlines so I'm not caught off guard...then I have the Wall St. Journal on the iphone to get the "real story".
