You either already realize this, or youâ€™re still running fast and hard toward the cliff. Either way, Iâ€™d love your perspective.
That cliff is the attention implosion. You likely consider yourself a social creature. You probably like human interaction either on a small scale or a large scale. But, the key to the success of human interaction is, um, interaction. I donâ€™t know what the number is for youâ€“Dunbar suggests 150â€“but at some point it becomes physically and emotionally impossible to interact with people. When your attention is spread too thin, you canâ€™t give anyone the attention they deserve.
There might be anomalies among us, but even that is debatable.
I recommend that you spend a little time thinking about who your real friends are, and donâ€™t forget not to forget about them. You had better hope they will still be around when your attention implodes.
