Our brains aren't wired for all this, but we can learn to be productive. Personal Productivity Secrets gives you everything you need to know to be organized, in control, and to get things done: Understand how your brain absorbs, organizes, and filters the daily deluge of information, and learn to trick your brain into being more productive ; Appreciate the difference between "Time Management" and "Attention Management" and create workflow processes that help you defend your attention ; Create a plan for navigating endless technology options, and implement tools that will keep you productive, focused and in control. Personal Productivity Secrets reveals updated and vital information for achieving your significant results, and being as productive as you can be in a fast-paced, technology-driven society."--Publisher's website."@en
