Organize your MIND...Organize your LIFE. Train your brain to get more done in less time, by Paul Hammerness, MD, and Margaret Moore with John Hanc.

It takes an organized mind to manage a chronic disease such as diabetes, which depends upon a high level of self-vigilance. Managing lifestyle behaviors to keep blood sugars within a healthy range requires an unwavering focus, a flexible and creative mind, and the ability to observe connections and find patterns.

Organize Your Mind, Organize Your Life can help.
Based on cutting-edge neuroscience, and their work with people who have disorganized minds, Coach Meg and Dr. Hammerness have developed six organizing principles, or Rules of Order, for becoming more focused and resisting distraction.

The Rules of Order can help us move from out-of-control frenzy, to develop the skills and behaviors that will enable us to better handle the chaos of daily life, and the demands of our illness.

Dr. Hammerness, a clinical researcher on ADHD, is assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and an assistant psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Margaret Moore, MBA ("Coach Meg")
Coach Meg, an executive wellness coach, is the co-director of the Institute of Coaching at Mclean Hospital (a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School) and the founder and CEO of Wellcoaches Corporation, a leading coach training school.
