If time-management checklists and calendar boxes don’t work for you, have hope. Jen Louden offers a colorful, intuitive way to shape your life’s days with reverence and soul. With The Life Organizer at your side, you can make your days holy, feeling by feeling, question by question, intention by intention. (And it works for men, too.)”
Jeffrey Davis, author of The Journey from the Center to the Page
As a busy creative entrepreneur and mom, I find it tempting to be run by my to-do list. If I’m not careful, I wind up feeling stressed and I don’t get to fully enjoy the process of all that I’m doing. Seeing The Life Organizer on my desk gently reminds me there is another way, a way to live with joy and productivity. I love this book!”
Karen Salmansohn, bestselling author of Prince Harming Syndrome

Unstuck stuff! wwwway good resource.
It took me about 3 tries to get out of 1st gear with the book and get into a groove writing. What helped was I finally decided I did not need to write every day on a Mon, Tues, Wed, Thur, Fri type of schedule. That I could write when I wanted to to. Also what helped was writing into my own journal and not into the book.
Now for the book itself. Once you get past the getting started mode it is quite helpful at allowing one to reflect on Should Do, Could Do, and Can do's of life. The reflective questions go beyond the traditional questions you'd expect. The notion of an intention for each week is powerful. The reflective question that asks you to go back over your previous reflections is also quite powerful. The quotes from notable figures was exciting and very inspirational.
The book helped me immensely with seeing myself clearier and understanding what I can tolerate, and what I will not tolerate and what I can do about it.
Because the book has an open/make it yours kind of style this can be disconcerting to those who are used to a more traditional style of guided journaling, but in the end this style works as well. Give it a try.
There are weekly "assignments", if you will, intended to nudge or pry or push you (the overbusy, overworked, overwhelmed woman who already has too much on her plate) out of the discontented place you may have found yourself. This book reminds me very much of the year's worth of suggestions made by another author, Sarah Ban Breathnach, in her 1996 book, Simple Abundance-A Daybook of Comfort and Joy.
It seems to me that there must be some kind of middle ground between the extremes of obsessive self-inquiry during our already busy lives, and giving ourselves the gift of a spa retreat with bodywork, meditation, yoga practice and healthful vegetarian cuisine. For after all, isn't that what we are looking for when we pick up this kind of book, some guided Wisdom about finding and recognizing that peaceful place of balance and harmony where we already live?
