“In every set of facts, something essential is hidden.”
Have you ever felt overwhelmed and lost? Have you ever been bombarded with so much information that you aren’t sure how to identify what is essential and what isn’t? When we are in situations like this, it’s important to look at the big picture and understand what the information you have actually means.
To do this, you will have to filter the essential facts, options, opinions, and such from the nonessential so you can find the essence of the information. You will have to pay attention to what is not being said, ie. the information you don’t have, and any various details that show you different perspectives of the same situation. Then you will be able to ignore irrelevant and gain an objective understanding of what is really happening.
Keep a journal.
Identify the information you need to solve big problems.
