Mind over Matter: Staying Organized in the Age of Information Overload

  1. Daniel Levitin

We are drowning in information and, at the same time, expected to make more—and faster—decisions about our lives. What works and what doesn't when it comes to organizing our minds? In this short conversation recorded at the 72nd CFA Institute Annual Conference in London, Daniel J. Levitin, an award-winning scientist, musician, writer, and record producer, discusses his book, The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Overload, why multi-tasking is a myth, how music affects the brain, and much more.

The Take 15 Series is a collection of illuminating, short conversations with noted economists, best-selling authors, leading researchers, and successful practitioners on topics ranging from geopolitics and whistleblowing to irrationality and outlooks.
