A new book, The Organized Mind, by Daniel J. Levitin, tackles the common contemporary problem of having a constant flow of information that must be processed, stored and retrieved. According to the author, a cognitive neuroscientist at McGill University, all this information — pouring into brains that were designed to deal with a different set of circumstances — interferes with the ability to achieve peace of mind and productivity. The book gives practical and science-based advice for organizing physical surroundings and routine so it’s possible to reduce the demands on a person’s cognitive abilities.
