Appropriate Level of Perspective
It's just a matter of having the appropriate level of perspective. If you're in Florida and thinking about Oregon, you need a map of the United States. But if you're on 42nd Street in Manhattan and trying to find a restaurant, a map of the United States is of very little use to you. Just try to make sure the mental 'map' you are using to take in and process a given situation is the right one to have for where you are and for what you need to do.
