In an era of too much information, I choose to simplify data as much as possible. Bottomline, if there's nothing that can be done based on knowing the information, then it serves no purpose.
But in most instances, information does float around in the form of random comments, opinions and the sharing of perspectives in conversations and social media. How we process (and choose to process) those pieces of information is entirely up to us.
By believing everything you see and hear, one becomes vulnerable to making the wrong decisions. Always think before you say or act!
