The Organized Mind
The information age is drowning us with an unprecedented deluge of data. At the same time, we’re expected to make more and faster decisions about our lives than ever before.
But somehow some people become quite accomplished at managing information flow. In The Organized Mind, Daniel J. Levitin, Ph.D., uses the latest brain science to show how those people excel. How readers can use their methods to regain a sense of mastery over the way they organize their homes, workplaces, and time.
Entertaining chapters on everything from the kitchen junk drawer to health care. Levitin reveals how neuroscience of attention and memory applied to 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 perspective.
