Writer’s Wednesday: Make Your Brain Work by Amy Brann
Over the past couple of months I have been reading Make Your Brain Work: How to Maximize Your Efficiency, Productivity and Effectiveness by Amy Brann. Full disclosure: I received a free copy via the First Reads program on Goodreads however, all opinions are my own.
I really enjoyed it, but I also love learning about how our brain works and how we can use it to our full ability. The book is written in an easy-to-understand language, while still giving enough details and background information to sustain the claims made.
Make Your Brain Work covers such diverse topics as how our brain prioritizes, how we absorb new information, the way we deal with stress, controlling feelings and emotions, distractions, making decisions, focus, habits, conflicts, work-life balance, control, time versus energy, goals, motivation, meetings, presentations, leadership, sales and management. And all in less than 300 pages.
Of course books could be written, and have been written, on each of these topics, but for a quick insight with loads of practical tips and ideas I greatly recommend Make Your Brain Work by Amy Brann.
