new approach to organizing
on December 11, 2007
It's not really anything those of us who are clutter prone haven't heard before, but it's got a new feel to it and is much gentler in approach. You're guided through step by step, never before you're ready - heck, even excited - to move to the next.
She gives you hope that, yes, I can change this, and then takes you through an actual first step of cleaning out/organizing a client's purse, another client's junk drawer. Little changes you can make, little bits of time spent to boost your confidence to tackle the big messes.
Best of all, for me, is that she has empathy for the disorganized. It's understood that there's an emotional component to this -- even if there wasn't one at the beginning, by the time you have a room or an entire house that's a disorganized nightmare there's at least feelings of being overwhelmed by the task, along with shame and self-disgust for letting it get this out of control. This cd acknowledges those feelings, places no blame, and gently leads you through, activity by activity, till you're out of that awful place.
Definitely 5 stars. If you've read other organizing books and nothing's helped, give this a try.
