We need information to make the right decisions. If we don’t have enough information, we tell ourselves that lack of information is the reason why we didn’t make it, and why we’re not satisfied. It’s the reason we can’t make things work.
We need information to be in control. If we at some point understand that we don’t know, we feel left out.
On the other hand. It’s hard to stay focused and give full attention when we have too much information. We don’t need irrelevant information, even though sometimes it feels good to know «everything».
It’s the right information, and just enough information that we really need. And, we need it at the right time. We need a method to filter the information and the communication, at the same time, we really would like to know «everything».
Slack is a messaging app for teams. And, it makes a good solution for helping you with the information paradox.
