book review

When you write a book, you become a critic about other books in the same genre. I had read several organizing and productivity books before I even thought about writing one myself and there was a lot that I didn’t like.

There were a few that I kept and that I turn to periodically, though.  It’s Hard to Make A Difference When You Can’t Find Your Keys by Marilyn Paul is one of my favorites. I have to say that I picked it up because of the title, but I bought it and refer to it because it’s written intelligently, with a professional tone.

Marilyn talks about the issues she encountered with her own clutter and how she overcame the challenges created by her actions and habits.

I began to see that I created my own mess through the choices I made and my unconscious habits. Becoming aware of this was hard for me, but the more I looked, the more I could see that I was taking actions that led to chaos.

This book is not a memoir, but an accounting of how learning to do things differently can help you become more productive, feel less stressed and enjoy life more.

Whether you face a cluttered environment at home or at work, Marilyn has suggestions for creating change.
