Format: Paperback
This is an awesome book by the "Slob Sisters" Pam Young and Peggy Jones, authors of "Sidetracked Home Executives." This book outlines in great detail how to create a system of getting your life in order. Their first book, "Sidetracked Home Executives" is the nuts and bolts book about how to get your home cleaned and organized (for people who are not "born organized" and have a hard time with staying focused and who tend to be perfectionists and/or ADD). This book takes the same principals and applies it to the rest of your life - Love and Romance, Dreams, Prosperity, Health and Beauty, Parents and Kids, Freedom, Appreciation, Work, Laughter, Hospitality, Friendship, and Giving, and Faith (these are the final chapters of the book - taken on one month at a time). It gives great ideas for getting all those thoughts in your head down on to 3x5 cards and actually doing something about it. Using this system will help you grow more into the person that you want to be, instead of staying stagnant. The book is filled with real life examples (which I find so many self-help books are actually lacking) and lots and lots of humor. I currently have a library copy but will definitely be buying it to have on hand and actually try to start implementing slowly (baby steps!). A great addition for any Flybaby ([...]). I can't recommend this book enough!

I found this once in a library in Texas - a nice change from most organizational books. Goes month by month, and gives a different focus idea for each month. Good ideas for getting motivated, but not too much nuts and bolts - get those from other books. This is for motivation and direction.

I purchased this as a companion for the audio version recently produced by Pam Young. While the dramatic advances in technology since the publication of this book make some of the practical suggestions outdated, the candid personal anecdotes, presented with an artful balance of sentiment and humor, can really hit home for readers in any decade who are overwhelmed with the responsibilities of marriage, work, housekeeping and parenting. It is as entertaining as fiction while presenting practical behavior modification strategies that can truly improve your life.

I used this system back in the 70's to keep my life in order raising a young family of four children. Now that I'm retired, but the owner of a busy business, I find I need it again. I am slowly implementing some of the principles and it's making a difference. I'm so glad I was able to get the book again. More changes ahead!

This is an old book that Flylady talks about all the time as being the inspiration for her ability to love herself and to help other people deal with the overwhelmingness of being a busy adult. I have wanted to read it for several years but never got around to it. And when I finally got it for my kindle I realized it isn't a sit down and read the way through this type book. Instead it is like a delightful box of candy. One small piece each day keeps you laughing, and hopeful, and determined to get a handle on this "taking care of your home and family" thing. There are a lot of funny anecdotes which convince you that the book was written by people who know what it is like to be weighted down with worry and clutter and self recrimination. It also convinces you that the biggest problem that you have is your negative voices and perfectionism. Read this book for an upbeat introduction to taking care of your home and yourself, or go to flylady.com and follow pam Young from facebook. Wherever you start reading her words, just read them and be happy.
