Publisher's Summary

The key to a less hectic, less stressful life is not in simply organizing your desk, but organizing your mind. Dr. Paul Hammerness, a Harvard Medical School psychiatrist, describes the latest neuroscience research on the brain's extraordinary built-in system of organization. Margaret Moore, an executive wellness coach and codirector of the Institute of Coaching, translates the science into solutions.

This remarkable team shows you how to use the innate organizational power of your brain to make your life less stressful, and more productive and rewarding. You'll learn how to:

  • Regain control of your frenzy
  • Embrace effective uni-tasking (because multitasking doesn't work)
  • Fluidly shift from one task to another
  • Use your creativity to connect the dots

This groundbreaking guide is complete with stories of people who have learned to stop feeling powerless against multiplying distractions and start organizing their lives by organizing their minds.

Disappointing

Admittedly I read a lot in this field, so finding much that is new and useful might be tougher for me. I do wish that the appendices were available as a PDF with the download.

Interesting and useful

This book is useful in helping you to understand why you feel distracted and overwhelmed and some steps you can take to feel more in control of your life. I like the high-level perspective, both conceptually and related to what it means to be organized. In some areas,I would have liked more in-depth coaching tips,but overall, I have found this book very useful. I feel I have improved already and will definitely reread.

Great resource just not for audio

This is a book full of suggestions, steps and strategy, but I'm having a very hard time "visualizing" resources that I can see. I should have gone with a Kindle version or actual book. I feel like I wasted my money with this one.

represent your time

From what I have learnt after reading books on organising and practising organising my space and life for a few years now, the important thing to know is -- represent your time on paper. once you list out every single un-represented action, it will become clear to you why you spend so much time doing busy work and getting nothing done.

Lots of filler

There are several good points made but it took nine chapters to describe what they could have done in two chapters lots of boring filler. The authors need to read a book about getting to the point.

WAY down to brain science rabbit hole

Although I am pretty organized already I’m always game for improvement. This book, however, focuses on brain anatomy, not on enhancing organizational abilities.

Very useful book

This is a very good book with lots of useful information and tips. I go through it every year or so. I enjoy it in print, kindle and audio formats. I also find it’s sometimes useful to read along while listening as well. There is a very brief shilling for Hillary Clinton, but if you can just drown out that obvious political BS it’s fantastic.
