9780615587868: Goofs & Glitches: Lighthearted Views of Today's Distraction-Riddled Work/Life

This amusing book helps readers recognize the ways that unchecked stress, inattention and multitasking can undermine their ability to handle all the competing responsibilities of life. The examples in this book, cautionary tales compiled from Dr. Geri Markel s Managing Your Mind Newsletter, can help readers analyze distracting situations, gain a healthy perspective on the causes and consequences, and appreciate the humor in the human foibles we all share. Each parable illustrates the ways in which stress and attention slippages can wreak havoc on a person s work/life productivity. Dr. Markel and co-author Jane Heineken categorize these stressors as Demons of Distraction such as Technology, Stress, Fatigue and Others and suggest strategies to reduce the angst and negative consequences of distractions faced by professionals, employees, parents, students and older adults. Markel and Heineken invoke both amusement and empathy to guide readers toward a more mindful and pro-active approach to avoiding some of the Goofs and Glitches of contemporary life.
