When Too Much Is Really Too Much

There are too many numbers in the world…

  • Account Numbers
  • Customer Numbers
  • Paint-by-numbers
  • Purchase Order Numbers
  • Serial Numbers
  • Confirmation Numbers
  • Phone Numbers
  • License Plate Numbers
  • Conference Call Numbers
  • Invoice Numbers

And too many dates…

  • Birthdates
  • Service Dates
  • Period Dates
  • Anniversary Dates
  • Play Dates
  • Speed Dates
  • Meeting Dates

Too many codes…

  • Pass Codes
  • Access Codes
  • Data Codes
  • HTML Codes

There’s just much too much of it all. The Information Superhighway has now become a multi-lane traffic jam.  Let’s stop this insanity by going back to the days when we didn’t always need so much security and protection.  We’ve almost put too much importance on the fact that we need so much of it.  The reason we’re overloaded?  Because we actually believe that we need to be “in-the-know” on everything, around the clock, all the time.  Truth is, we don’t need to be so tapped into the void.  Sometimes it’s better to unplug and tune out.  I mean, that’s the only way we can keep our sanity.  We don’t need so much information.  Really.  If we all just stopped listening to all those ads that encourage our greed, maybe we can actually notice the real sunrise and not just as a screensaver.

About Mema

I've been at this blogging thing since 2005, but I don't consider myself a veteran AT ALL. My posts are mostly well-meaning, fun anecdotes with the occasional random thought and a dash of humor for good measure. So sit back, relax, and stay awhile. And if you decide to browse elsewhere, just remember...you're missing out on an opportunity to meet (arguably) THE GREATEST PERSON THAT EVER LIVED. Overstated? Well, why not stick around to find out? Your call, tough guy. Or, gal. Or, martian.
