    I don't normally go to Harleuin for non fiction books but thanks to Netgalley I found this one Though there are a lot of books out there on how to organize yourself this one takes a different slant as it focuses on organizing your thoughts firstThe authors propose techniues that could be helpful to those who suffer from ADHD as well as those who just want to become efficient and mentally train themselves to think in a systematic wayThe six steps are1 Tame the Frenzy2 Sustain Attention3 Apply the Brakes4 Mold Information5 Shift Sets6 Connect the dotsDr Paul Hammerness an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School uses his expertise to contribute his findings and give readers tips to think about what happens in the brain when we are disorganized He also provides insight through case studies with patients who have faced problems in their lives Margaret Moore aka Coach Meg uses her expertise as a personal coach to help readers change their perceptions and improve their mental fitness in order to become organizedLike a lot of how to self improvement books there were parts that were long winded and yawn worthy but for the large part this is a very well researched and written book One thing that disappointed me though was that the web sites they proposed for you to go to in order to find out your strengths were places where you had to either pay for the test or enter too much personal information info that made me uncomfortable so I opted not to do so The examples are clear and there are enough tips and suggestions to actually help you find your way to clearer thinking and being organized

    This book describes some techniues to help modify Inez's responses to environmental stimuli to create less stress and productivity The pair of authors are good coaches through the process of change Distractions are going to occur but this book helps you by guiding you towards mindful rather than impulsive decisionsThe author suggests creating motivators into mission statements For example I will improve my relationship with my children if I am better able to tame the frenzy and focus mindfully on our conversations She states that the best motivators connect change to a higher purpose so one should consider what will make you thrive and enable you to realize your life's purpose or legacy While we are good at identifying our deficiencies we are not so good at identifying our strengths which is necessary to help us make and sustain change especially when it is difficult To learn about strong points wwwstrengthfindercom or wwwviacharacterorgRules of order1 tame the frenzy When we are emotionally heated we have less cognitive control because the amygdala is acting up and invoking fear or anxiety while the rational part of the brain or cortical is uieting down Cognitive reappraisal can calm the emotions to allow increased reasoning We want to seek a state of calm rather than anxiety sadness and anger by minimizing our internal frenzy because we cannot always control the external noise and stress2 sustain attention What hooks our attention is something consistent with our goals but it can be side tracked by other stimuli We need to struggle to stay focused by intentionally giving attention to our goals The ideal state of attention is called flow which the experience people have when they are completely immersed in an activity for its own sake stretching mind and body to the limit voluntarily to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile Flow feels effortless like being in the zone And flow happiness and fulfillment Read research of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi for info strengths2020com can also help determine strengths3 apply the brakes Welcome an impulse but also listen to rational thoughts Keep in mind the long run because impulse control can allow you to achieve a organized life Impulses may provide creative tension and balance is needed so that we not only listen to our hearts today but invest in the future too 4 mold information Improve your working memory the function on a daily basis kind of memory to allow info that is no long right in front of you to still be useful and accessible The ability to mold information is a problem solving step as well as an analytical and creative step To improve working memory get enough sleep learn something new before going to sleep so your brain can mull it over break study sessions in to two instead of one long one exercise learn new skills hang with a younger crowd now and again create a memory book goals visions observations of your own behavior documents of things you use often that might get lost and where you keep them gesture with your hands when you learn new information 5 shift sets Be flexible in your thoughts and behaviors Prevent tunnel vision Shift with a sense of intent or planning Don't multi task but define a taskproblem prioritize it and then tackle it even in smaller time frames and leaving a part of it unfinished rather than drifting from task to task as you happen to notice them Make deliberate intentional choices 6 connect the dots The goal of an organized brain is to be able to see the big picture and act on it rather than just reacting to an impulse or interruption before us uieting the inner frenzy developing consistent and sustain and focus developing cognitive control and adapting with flexibility to new stimuli and molding new information are processes of synthesis and we must always be ready for change This will lead to less chaos We cannot always control crises that arrive but we can better deal with them and feel peaceful rather than disordered

    Organize Your Mind Organize Your Life is a uniue self help book one I haven't come across among some of the non fiction literature I usually peruse in the mind health and body dynamic There are many guides that address ways to be organized in categorical labels and filings and using productivity guides and software But this particular work takes disorganization and focuses on the problems stemming from a complex root the mind It delves into the processes and thoughts behind why people are disorganized and overwhelmed in life and how we can change those patterns simply by changing the way we think I really liked this combination of science meets cognitive restructuring and awareness The book outlines a six step structure in which to control thoughts and patterns that are counterproductive It addresses techniues that not only helpful to those that might suffer from conditions such as ADHD but also those who just want to become efficient and mentally train themselves to think in a systematic way The six steps covered in detail through the guide's chapters are1 Tame the Frenzy2 Sustain Attention3 Apply the Brakes4 Mold Information5 Shift Sets6 Connect the dotsThe information within Organize Your Mind Organize Your Life is wonderfully adaptive providing a combination of real life scenarios where people have struggled in their daily lives and have had to adapt some of the principles covered in this book to work towards a solution Dr Paul Hammerness an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School uses his expertise from working directly with ADHD patients to contribute his findings and give readers tips to think about what happens in the brain when we are disorganized and the emotions that take root in the frenzy and franticness that ensues when we're overwhelmed But he also provides insight via some of the case studies and interactions with real patients who have faced problems in their working and day to day lives I felt that in some sections the case studies read a bit long but they were well worth perusing when it came to juxtaposing the principles to the cases presentedMargaret Moore Coach Meg as referenced in the work uses her expertise as founder of Wellcoaches Corporation in guiding the reader to apply specific principles to enact changing one's perceptions and improving their mental fitness if you will to become organized and step away from the deconstructive thoughts that might result from the frenzied thinking following I really enjoyed reading her sections on the practical application and execution of these ideas If Dr Hammerness's sections showcase the what and why behind an individual's disorganization Coach Meg's sections are the how to parts that compliment this self help guide There are plenty of interactional sections where the reader can ask themselves uestions and mentally check themselves in accordance to the steps listed The information is very well structured easy to follow and flows in a step by step building process that can allow the reader to make the steps necessary to have their minds working for them Wonderful compilation by Dr Hammerness Mrs Moore and healthfitness writer John HancOverall score 45Note I received this as an ARC from NetGalley from the publisher Harleuin

    This book had a lot of potential It is based on the premise that everyone who has trouble with organization can benefit from strategies designed for people with ADHD Despite this while I do have ADHD it became clear uickly on that the target audience is a person who has trouble in one or a few areas The introduction was frustrating as the same information was hashed out over and over again When you're dealing with distracted people this is not a good techniue I found myself having to reread the same page on than one occasion The remainder of the book focused on six rules to get your life in better order While some of the anecdotes were helpful I felt that the gems of the book could have been condensed into a six page magazine article My other major annoyance was that it almost solely focused on people working out of the home who can effectively tune out distractions I'm a stay at home mom who is in the process of starting a business out of my home and my distractions in the form of two small children cannot and should not be ignored When coupled with my true blue ADHD many of the suggestions were outright laughable Was it a waste of time? Nobut it was hard for me to get through and I ended up skimming after a while because it was just too repetitive

    What do your neurological patterns have to do with the mess on your desk? Everything say the authors of Organize Your Mind Organize Your Life That’s why this book doesn’t just teach readers organizational and list making skills Instead it tackles the source of the problem — cloudy and disorganized thinking Distraction has become an epidemic say authors Paul Hammerness MD a Harvard assistant professor of psychiatry and Margaret Moore life coach and codirector of the Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital affiliated with Harvard Medical School As a result they observe many otherwise healthy people are suffering symptoms of OBLT or being Overwhelmed By Life Today Their book presents a powerful collection of tools for tackling that malady And because the advice comes from a brain scientist and a life coach readers get both deep scientific knowledge and actionable advice It’s an empowering combination Whether you suffer from adult ADD or just a case of too busy to focus learning to “organize your life by better organizing your mind” offers palpable relief and fresh hope

    This book is a team authorship of psychologist and life coach The psychologist Paul Hammerness specializes in patients with ADHD Since my son has ADHD and I have some ah characteristics of my own learning about the operation of the brain and how emotion and stress affect its function was really helpful I also thought that the life coach Margaret Moore had very realistic suggestions on ways to improve attention and effective time management For me the funniest moment was a story about a woman who went out to spend an hour cleaning the garage and ended up out there all day Oh boy I do that kind of thing all the time I have to set a timer to make myself stop doing things longer than necessary The garage cleaning activity is actually useful it's just that it wasn't the only thing she had to do that day The discussion was about how to prioritize activities and time and how to shift focus when necessary in order to get necessary things done Highlights multitasking does not work sleep is vital to good brain organization as is exercise and healthy eating habits it is possible to change ineffective behavior Highly recommended

    This is the type of book that I usually really like and devour but for some reason I had a hard time getting through this one I can't uite put my finger on why but the writing style was not compelling enough to keep me interested I guess the best insight I got was the distinction between multi tasking and set shifting There was an excellent example of a woman going through her day trying to multi task and ending up in a big distracted mess with a bunch of unfinished projects Then it went through the exact same day only this time using her skills to decide whether to keep on the task at hand or purposely reschedule the task for later in order to do something else Having a clear head helped her be efficient at what she was doing and make better decisions because her brain wasn't trying to hold many tasks at the same time It's a subtle difference but an important one and I think it will help me


  8. says:

    This book was a surprising help to my ADD tendencies and general scattered ness I learned some things I didn't know about myself learned that in fact they are not necessarily normal or functional and I feel so much clearer and able to focus now I read it a chapter per week so I had time to integrate each step into my daily life I only gave it four stars because in some places the writing is a little disjointed and also there are several paragraphs of repeated dumbed down information that I think could have been eliminated to make this a streamlined read But other than that I recommend this to anybody who is struggling on a regular basis to have any semblance of organization in their life


  9. says:

    This book was just okay for me I already do most of the things they advise I'm just a sucker sometimes for a book that looks like it's going to work some kind of magic that if only I were COMPLETELY organized and disciplined my life would be perfect This might be a good book for someone who is really disorganized and kind of starting from scratch


  10. says:

    The authors have formulated an interesting strategy to help with organization Certainly no silver bullet but it does offer some very interesting and rather compelling perspectives
