The Organized Mind
In The Organized Mind, New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author and neuroscientist Daniel Levitin offers practical solutions to the problems of information overload.
Overwhelmed by demands on your time? Caught in an unproductive spiral of emails and multitasking?
You’re not alone. When we’re deluged with information our creativity plummets, our decision making suffers and we grow absent-minded. Nowadays, we drown in our inboxes, forever juggle several tasks at once and try to make complex decisions ever more quickly. This is information overload.
Combining the latest neuroscience with everyday examples, Daniel Levitin explains how to take back control of your life – from your home to your business to your children – all through organization. You’ll discover life-changing facts about:
– How to make the most of your brain’s daily processing limit
– Why pressing Send or clicking Like are addictive
– Why daydreaming is your brain at its most productive
– What the most successful people keep in their drawer
– Why multitasking is a bad way to do nearly everything
In a world where information is power, The Organized Mind holds the key to harnessing that information and making it work for you.
