The Organized Mind Thinking Straight in the Age of Information OverloadNew York Times bestselling author and neuroscientist Daniel J Levitin shifts his keen insights from your brain on music to your brain in a sea of details The information age is drowning us with an unprecedented deluge of data At the same time we're expected to makeand faster decisions about our lives than ever before No wonder then that the average American reports freuently losing car keys or reading glasses missing appointments and feeling worn out by the effort reuired just to keep up But somehow some people become uite accomplished at managing information flow In The Organized Mind Daniel J Levitin PhD uses the latest brain science to demonstrate how those people excel and how readers can use their methods to regain a sense of mastery over the way they organize their homes workplaces and time With lively entertaining chapters on everything from the kitchen junk drawer to health care to executive office workflow Levitin reveals how new research into the cognitive neuroscience of attention and memory can be applied to the challenges of our daily lives This Is Your Brain on Music showed how to better play and appreciate music through an understanding of how the brain works The Organized Mind shows how to navigate the churning flood of information in the twenty first century with the same neuroscientific perspectiv Because we are inundated with information than any of our ancestors being organized is a far important trait than ever before The Organized Mind is pretty much an updated version of Thinking Fast and Slow for the information age If you’re looking for the real source text I rec reading TF&S and Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow Levitin adds the euivalent of a Wired article on top of the knowledge already in TF&S and FlowIn the end I got a lot out of this book and it’s going to change how I organize my day to day life I’m a freelancerultimately I’m my own boss and how I organize my time impacts how much money I take home Ironically this book could have been better organized The author goes on a ton of tangents and the editor should have reigned him in but for me it was still worth the read I rec the kindle version so you can make highlightsand the hardback version is comically large I hope another author writes a book tackling the issue of staying on task in the Information Age Social media platforms are designed to distract us and I don't think we are going to make any huge advancements as a species if we’re constantly checking our Twitter feeds
