If you’ve ever lost your keys, missed an appointment or wasted hours because you were distracted by a frivolous text or email message, then this book is for you.

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, is at the forefront of new neuroscience research that has discovered the brain’s extraordinary built-in system of organization.

Margaret Moore, a certified wellness coach and cofounder of Harvard’s Institute of Coaching, has helped to turn that science into solutions—showing you how to use the innate organizational power of your brain to make your life less stressful, more productive and, ultimately, more rewarding.

Together, Dr. Paul and Coach Meg have created a one-two prescriptive punch that will teach you how to: - regain control of your emotions - embrace effective uni-tasking (because multitasking doesn’t work!) - fluidly shift from one task to another - curb time-consuming impulsivity

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.
