5.0 out of 5 stars Organize Your Work and Finances April 26, 2012
Format:Spiral-bound|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Jennifer Ford Berry has written several of these handy week-by-week guides to organization, and this one tackles work, including time and money in the context of work.

The book is set up with 52 weekly sections, each one giving background, instructions, and to-dos for a given area of the career/finance realm. This makes getting organized less overwhelming, and means that you can take it on as a year-long goal and expect to finish.

Realistically, most people won't need all 52 of the topics covered. We don't all need an extended leave from work during Week 17 of the year, we don't all have home offices, and we don't all need to organize a business plan. Just recognize that you'll have some weeks off, though, and you should find the book useful.

The book spends 10 weeks on organizing time, including everything from developing long-term goals to wrangling e-mail. Next, spend 7 weeks on your career, from resumes to professional development. * weeks for networking will get you covered for your blog, your mailing list, and your physical world networking. Follow up with work spaces and the basics of business (that's where the business plan comes in). Finish up with personal finances, including bills, kids, finances, retirement funds, taxes, and an anti-identity theft plan.

Clearly, this is a compendium of useful information. How can such a modest volume accomplish this? Each chapter is basically a checklist. The section on organizing your website tells you to renew your domain name every year and to check your web stats -- not how to do those things. In other words, this isn't an exhaustive (and exhausting) book covering everything you need to do in your work life. It's an organizing plan.

Format:Spiral-bound|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I got this book because I have the author's other organize now book, Organize Now!: A Week-by-Week Guide to Simplify Your Space and Your Life, which I really liked. That book is focused more on home/family organization, while this one is focused on career and business. This is great for me, since I am like a completely different person when it comes to my personal life vs. my business life. I have also started a new job search and a new business. So I am really excited about using this book!

I like the 52 week set up, which anyone can use without getting overwhelmed. But I do think this wouldn't work so well for people who end up giving up on projects (as they would gradually just start forgetting to do them) or if you want a book to read in one sitting and then organize everything at once (although, you could actually do it at your own pace).

A previous reviewer mentioned their dislike of the spiral binding. I like it for books like this that you would be putting down frequently, as you can just put it down open to the page you are working on! I like the specific-ness of this book. It has clearly stated goals for each week place to put your own notes, tips and then a checklist to stay organized (usually meant to mark on your calendar - once a month, 3-6 months and every year - such as reviewing your priorities every year or once a month checking in with friends and colleagues if they have heard of new job leads).

Some of the tips included in the book are really just common sense things, (i.e. "recycle all junk mail as soon as you receive it") many you have heard before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Great Lists May 16, 2012
Format:Spiral-bound|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is an interesting book on organization, and there are parts that I really like and others that just seem to fill up space. Organization is something I could use more of, and there are at least 5 lists in the book that I have used that make it worth the price.

Don't like:

* 52 week plan. Gimmicky, can't imagine someone actually going through this week by week on the schedule.

* Order of content. If you did go week-by-week, why is organizing business before organizing your site? Finances seems like it should be one of the first, but the author save it until last.

* Too broad of a scope. Few people will need to organize their job search, children's finances, coupons, paper clutter, and their direct mail. Many lists are redundant and not helpful.

Like:

* I love lists. They help get things done, and there are some great ones here. The list format for each chapter is great.

* Networking systems section is very good. Great tips on your blog, website, social media, etc.

* Binding. Any book that you write it needs to be bound like this. Very easy to use and you can actually write in the book without bending it in half.

Overall, this is a good book if you work well with lists and need to organize pieces of your business. I have read better books about time management, but this is a good tool to have on hand and worth the price. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars week by week May 23, 2012
Format:Spiral-bound|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The layout of the book to me seems like a Day Runner Express Terramo Refillable Planner, 5 1/2x8 1/2, Purple, Undated (401-0214) layout to me. Since I am "disorganized impaired", I wasn't sure this book would work for me.

First off, the book is divided in 52 weeks - the same number of weeks there are in a year. Each week has a particular theme, which is helpful to me because it reminds me to keep my mind on one project at a time. I tend to start a few projects but never make a particular deadline for the projects. So sometimes the projects do not get finished in a timely manner and I am looking under the sink thinking "Why do we have 5 boxes of Brillo Pads? What was I going to use them for?" Do normal people have 5 boxes of Brillo Steel Wool Soap Pads Red, 10 Count in their house? I don't think so.

Some organizing info is just plain old common sense - pay your bills, for example. Some are for a person running a business, telling you how often to post to a blog and how to make social media work to your advantage.
But the info is straight forward and practical, you don't have to have a complicated system to actually get organized if you use this book.

I like it but for me it's a little too much - I'd like to say my life is so busy I have no idea what I will be doing next, but that's a lie. I just normally don't think of the year as 52 separate units and make plans. But I have made a few adjustments to my life and I think it's been beneficial to me. I say if you're interesting in getting organized, this book is a good place to start. If you are already organized, this book can help tweak your system to make it work better for you.
