PUBLISHER: Harvard Business Review Press
GENRE: Business & Money
Are you driven to distraction at work?
Best-selling author Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., the world’s leading expert on attention deficit disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, has set his sights on a new goal: helping people feel more in control and productive at work.
You know the feeling: you can’t focus; you feel increasingly overwhelmed by a mix of nonstop demands and technology that seems to be moving at the speed of light; and you’re frustrated just trying to get everything done well - and on time. Not only is this taking a toll on performance, it’s impacting your sense of well-being outside the office. It’s time to reclaim control.
Dr. Hallowell now identifies the reasons why people lose focus at work. He explains why commonly offered solutions like “learn to manage your time better” or “make a to-do list” don’t work because they ignore the deeper issues that cause mental distraction. Based on years of helping clients develop ways to deal with distraction, Dr. Hallowell provides a set of practical and reliable techniques to sustain a productive mental state.
