    After spending some time on the forum looking for my next plan to put into action, sometimes I just get overwhelmed with the amount of information and I simply cannot decide where to start.

    I'm sure other people here have the same problem.

    Do you you avoid information overload?

    no such thing as information overload

    1. You're being lazy (it happens)

    2. In the back of your mind you don't really believe in what your reading.

    Take action. First, pick a niche you have interest in, second, decide how to get traffic and then take it from there. There's thousands of ways to make money, and one were you don't make sh*t, which is by not taking action. So pick something and try, if you "fail", try something else. Repeat until you suceed.

    I stop reading and just do it. You should try it.

    Read after you start, then you can see what you can change/learn from other peoples information

    Technological leverage. Computers are supposed to enhance productivity, not rob it. You don't have to be an IT whiz- even using notepad to copy + paste notes, filtering out the crucial stuff from the drivel will increase productivity. You could also try Excel.

    Use more than one monitor if you can afford it- use one as a guide to guide you through what you're doing on the main one. I use 3 - one is a guide for the guide.

    btw I take a different approach from everyone saying "Just do it." If you aim before you shoot, you can save a lot of arrows (or in this case time) = more productivity. I try to learn from the people who are already banking, to lessen the chances of repeating their mistakes.
