Brain Hacks by Lara Honos-Wedd, Ph.D.

Brain Hacks: Life-Changing Strategies To Improve Executive Function has a cover that claims this book will help you “Work smarter, stay focused, and achieve your goals.” It is 140+ pages of useful information that actually gave me tips that I will use forever. As someone that works with numerous clients, from home, taking on a variety of tasks (reviews, article writing, editing, etc.), and has their own creative passion projects, I find it hard to stay on task sometimes – this book has the tools that will help even the busiest worker or entrepreneur.

This book, rightfully, begins with a chapter that explains exactly what executive function is. The key, here, is to keep your business life afloat and tap into the part of you brain that focuses on work (that’s my super-simple layman’s terms description anyway). I like that this chapter is filled with questions that will help you determine your executive style, which will help you learn what strategies will best work for you when it comes to getting your work done.

The layout of this book makes it easy to read. You won’t get bored with super-long paragraphs, and you’ll find the exercises are useful and easy to follow.

Goal setting is one of my passions, but I’ve found myself so busy lately (and it’s not that steady, “regular” schedule busy), so my goal setting falls to the wayside. My work is sporadic, and I fit in my own projects every chance I get – which sometimes isn’t much. Brain Hacks has a lot of tips on goal setting – ones that I am pretty sure will assist me in making it easier to set my own goals even with a sporadic full-time schedule.

This book will make you look at the way you set goals, the way you focus (or your lack thereof), and how you organize (your stuff and your life). It’s a must for busy professionals, whether you work for someone else or for yourself.

 

I received this book free from the publisher, and this is an honest and unbiased review.
