Get Out of My Head: Creating Modern Clarity with Stoic Wisdom: by Malcolm McConnell (2005)
Get Out of My Head is a lifeline for overwhelmed professionals seeking direction and tranquility in turbulent times, whether navigating daily stressors or experiencing defining moments.
Author M. Andrew McConnell, CEO of RENTED, INC., shows you it’s possible to achieve clarity, make good decisions, and rise in your career, by illustrating that the human mind is not unlike real estate: adopting an owner’s mindset can make all the difference.
Drawing on ancient Stoic philosophy, modern science, and remarkable stories of contemporary innovators in business, sports, and more, Get Out of My Head demonstrates how to effectively allocate your mental resources, set mental boundaries, and overcome challenges by seizing ownership of your own mind and channeling adversity as a vehicle for growth.
Beyond giving you the tools to set boundaries and develop better resilience—the remedy to chronic stress—Get Out of My Head shares the stories of high-achieving modern Stoics who have successfully reclaimed their headspace so that you, too, can transition from “mind rentership” to “mind ownership.”
