The never-ending pursuit of knowledge

We all consume more information, inspiration etc. than we produce. More thoughts go in than out. After a while this can start to feel tiring. It just feels like you're wasting time. Gary Wu said it wonderfully:

Information overload is a real concern these days. It leads to analysis paralysis and a never-ending pursuit of knowledge just for the sake of knowledge.

There will never be a point in time when you've "finished" the information game. There is no end goal. There will always be new things to learn, more knowledge to absorb, more thoughts to process. The one thing you need to keep in mind, and to further quote Gary Wu's answer on Quora"If you're unhappy with where you are and how you're spending your time, it's best to reduce your consumption."

The most important thing you can do is to be aware of how much you consume, compared to how much you produce, how much you publish for the world to see.

If you can relate to this as much as I can I definitely recommend reading "Create more than you Consume", by Mikael Cho, as well as "Stop Consuming, start acting" by Paul Jarvis.
