Winnowing

Separate the chaff from the grain

I remind myself of this analogy again

Each day when at work and in life I face

Information overload trying to jostle for space

Within my mind, my capacity to process

I fear decision paralysis from this excess

I have to separate noise from data of relevance

I get better at this separation with experience

Despite this, there is constant bombardment

Of new information that does present

A challenge for me to figure out

Whether it is something I can do without

Or it needs to be absorbed and filed away

In a recess of my brain for use another day..

*

Every resource including time is finite

Therefore in order to do it right

I separate the chaff from the grain

Each day, to keep me productive and sane
