Morgenstern's "from the inside out" system begins by laying out the possible reasons for a failure of organization: technical errors (like having a complex organizing system that breaks down), external realities (like not enough space for your belongings), and psychological obstacles (like fear of failure--or success). Then, her Analyze and Strategize steps help create a plan of action based on your needs and goals, and the brief chapter called "Attack: Getting the Job Done" offers basic ideas for making space. The largest section of the book, "Applying What You've Learned," addresses the specifics of organizing workspaces, home offices, living spaces, and storage areas. Each section has a "How Long Will It Take?" box that gives a realistic time estimate, and Morgenstern's "Julie's No-Brainer Toss List" for each area gives the permission and encouragement that most of us have been waiting for to get rid of things we'll never use again. The section at the end, "Tackling Time and Technology," is worth its weight in DayTimers and PalmPilots. Whatever your organizing issues are, you're not a hopeless case, and you don't need special equipment--just a little understanding of the problem and a willingness to plan before diving in. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This book gave me a whole new perspective on organizing. Rather than organizing what I have, it helped me learn to organize what I need and actually need.Published 24 days ago by jbnbayarea
This book is a trifle superannuated (the chapter on taming technology cracked me up), but there's still a lot of amazingly useful information in it. Read morePublished 28 days ago by CelticGoddess 1326

This is one easy to absorb "how to organize" book. The idea that caught on with me was organize your filing cabinet drop folders exactly the way you think about them. Read morePublished 3 months ago by David Slack
