From the Author

Writing this book was a challenge for me; not in the context of supplying simple, powerful, and unique organizational advice, but because I wanted to open up and tell the story of what growing up with OCD was like and why my OCD came about.  My organizational tool chest will continue to grow as my company, the O.C.D. Experience, grows, but one thing will always remain consistent: my belief that striving to overcome obstacles and chaos will always lead to a positive outcome.  I know from experience.

Organize & Create Discipline is my first published work.  Having ADHD and OCD made focusing my thoughts for a book a very complicated task.  It's tough to perfect the content when you're stuck dwelling on whether the headings should be centered or left justified.  I was very fortunate to be able to collaborate with my dear friend and TV writer Arthur Gradstein. I approached him one day with a small manuscript, organized alphabetically from A-Z, filled with content that I knew would help people simplify their lives and improve their relationship with their space and "stuff". However, it was missing the spark that would get people honest and laughing at the things we are all guilty of when it comes to organization, something I'm able to do when I help people in person. Arthur helped me not only stay focused when writing this book, but also helped me transfer my passion and humor to the page in a clear and concise way.  Together, I feel we managed to deliver the most relevant organizational book on the market.

Organize & Create Discipline is a "Choose Your Own Adventure" of organization. Growing up in the 80's, I loved Choose Your Own Adventure books because no matter which way I decided to go, there was always fun journey. I wanted to model this book off that experience because most organizational books are boring and become exhausting after a few pages. With humor, interactivity, success stories, and a few of my own personal O.C.D. extremes, this book breaks the mold.  I am proud to be able to share it with the world.

If this book helps you in any way, I urge you to leave thoughts and comments so I know I've succeeded in my journey.  After all, this book, and my life's goal, is all about helping people!  

All my best, and remember... "NOW IS ALWAYS BEST TIME!"- Yul Brenner's character in "The King & I"

Justin

If you can quote Peter Walsh, THE decluttering guru, on the jacket of your book saying: "Organize & Create Discipline is a great blueprint for getting your home and your life in order. From A to Z, Justin has nailed it!" you really know your stuff. I got this book 2 weeks ago and with the holidays it got pushed around a bit. (need to ORGANIZE) So I had to set aside (CREATE) some time--today--to read it more thoroughly and I've had to go through enough of it to write an intelligent review (DISCIPLINE) even though I've kept wanting to start because of all the gems I keep running into.

I first heard of this book when Justin posted on a thread I started on Amazon's Gold Box Forum entitled "hoarding, disorganized, OCD--HELP!!" The first post reads:

<<< "Do you hoard stuff? Are you messy and disorganized? Are you obsessive/compulsive? Well, I am and my name is legion.
....I contributed to the GBF site, below: "what do you have too many of, but you still buy more?" and realized a huge source of depression and sadness in my life is having too much stuff and living in a chaotic mess rather than a clean, tidy haven. I hoard crafting supplies, books, newspapers, my son's paraphernalia, papers of all sorts, Christmas and other decorations...and much more. I am disorganized to the point of distraction. My DH, son and I are so unhappy as a direct result.
....Please share your stories of problems with and solutions to this chronic epidemic we have in America with acquisition of more stuff than we know what to do with." >>>
(If you want to see it, just click on Today's Deals at the top of this page and scroll down to the discussions.)

This thread is now in its 12th generation. People can't talk about these matters enough.

This is the first self help book I have read that actually helped. Until I read this book I was notoriously disorganized. I habitually lost or misplaced virtually everything I owned. If I made a list, I would lose the list. The only way I could organize my house was to throw everything out and move to another house. No more. The strategies I have learned from reading this thoughtful, funny book have been life changing.

Purchased this book and thought I would get a lot of use out of it, but before I could pick it up, by seventeen year old daughter did. She has now reorganized every inch of her room, you should see it, looks wonderful and she's a teen!!! Next she started on my kitchen, before that, I wouldn't want you to see the inside of my kitchen cabinets, items would fall out, now everything is perfect and all of the useless space taking stuff is awaiting yardsale!! Buy this book, give it to your energetic teenager and see if you have the good luck I had. Since then, I have picked it up and highly recommend, he has this organization stuff Down!!

The idea of organize and create discipline is such a good title and premise. The major premise is to streamline by going paperless, emptying out clutter, and creating media organization. Unfortunately, the guidebook mostly tells the reader such gems as to keep outdoor gear in the mudroom, toiletries in my toiletry bag, and pots in the kitchen. I should have kept my money in my pocket.

I love books on organizing, so I ordered this one. It provides a very clear-cut method for dealing with "stuff" and schedules. The only reservation I have is that much of the advice centers on digitizing everything using a smart phone, especially all paperwork (and destroying the originals except for things like contracts). This makes me uneasy so I don't follow that part of the process. Good for someone who needs direction and possesses a smart phone.

Justin clearly knows a thing or two about being organized, but his gift is in his ability to help those of us who don't. Maybe it's his OCD or simply his attention to detail, but this book leaves no stone unturned, no topic undiscussed. From children's schoolwork to your toiletry bag, and all the closets, calendars, and computer files in-between, never before has there been a more comprehensive (yet, easy to reference) guide to getting-- and staying-- organized. If you are looking for a fresh start, consider this book your clean slate-- an investment in yourself, and your future.

Just sat down with this book over the weekend and I have been doing projects working off of the specific and helpful advice for everything from my bra drawer to my filing system to my email sorting. I feel like I have my life in control and everything is at my fingertips. Super logically and motivating to help streamline my life. Buy this book! You will use it for years to come.
