Getting Organized in the Google Era:How to Get Stuff out of Your Head Find It When You Need It and Get It Done Right Douglas Merrill/ James A. Martin
Whether it´s a faulty memory, a tendency to multitask, or difficulty managing our time, every one of us has limitations conspiring to keep us from being organized. But, as organizational guru and former Google CIO Douglas C. Merrill points out, it isn´t our fault. Our brains simply aren´t designed to deal with the pressures and competing demands on our attention in today´s fast-paced, information-saturated, digital world. What´s more, he says, many of the ways in which our society is structured are outdated, imposing additional chaos that makes us feel stressed, scattered, and disorganized. But it doesn´t have to be this way. Luckily, we have a myriad of amazing new digital tools and technologies at our fingertips to help us manage the strains on our brains and on our lives; the trick is knowing when and how to use them. This is why Merrill, who helped spearhead Google´s effort to ´´organize the world´s information´´, offers a wealth of tips and strategies for how to use these new tools to become more organized, efficient, and successful than ever. But if you´re looking for traditional, rigid, one-size-fits-all strategies for organization, this isn´t the book for you. Instead, Merrill draws on his intimate knowledge of how the brain works to help us develop fresh, innovative, and flexible systems of organization tailored to our individual goals, constraints, and lifestyles. From how to harness the amazing power of search, to how to get the most out of cloud computing, to techniques for filtering through the enormous avalanche of information that assaults us at every turn, to tips for minimizing distractions and better integrating work and life, Getting Organized in the Google Era is chock-full of practical, invaluable, and often counterintuitive advice for anyone who wants to be more organized and productive - and less stressed - in our 21st-century world. 1.

Smooth Bourbon: An Education in Government, Google, and the CIA is the true story about one man´s fateful intersection between American government, one of the most elusive organizations in the world, and one of the most powerful corporations in existence today. It delves deep into the framework of US government and touches on sobering problems inherent within the Constitutional design, while at the same time interweaving stories that range from intriguing to humorous. Smooth Bourbon: An Education in Government, Google, and the CIA is intended for both high school- or college-level students who know very little about government and to better-informed listeners who are familiar with American government and are interested in hearing a fresh perspective. This audiobook is also intended for those interested in the intrigue around the CIA and for those interested in learning exactly what it´s like to work for Google. With college students in mind, this audiobook has easily accessible footnote citations to better facilitate research. It is organized in a binary fashion, with a chapter about the incredible experience of working for Google and going through the CIA´s very secretive interview processes, followed by chapters that detail different aspects of national governance. Every other chapter can best be characterized as a lecture. The real names and exact locations of all persons, except for the author, have been changed to protect the secrecy interests of the CIA and to provide confidentiality to all parties. To be sure, Smooth Bourbon is not intended to be a comprehensive account of government, Google, or the CIA. It is more of gripping story about my making sense of three very-misunderstood entities. The following audiobook represents personal arguments, many of them backed by scholars. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Giancarlo Maranzano.
