You can decide for the value of the information you encounter (whether you see, hear or read).
Put in categories right away with appropriate attention.
As illustrated in the pyramid;
1- Very Important (would be the top part- it so happens that very important information is simple and not in big volumes in this world.
2- Good to know information (something that makes you happy, gives you information or caution- the middle part of the pyramid.
3- No use information. ( the bottom part of the pyramid. This is the most abundant information type in the world- example negative news that you can’t do anything about, news about celebrity personal lives etc.)
