Book recommendation: It's Hard to Make a Difference When You Can't Find Your Keys
I just finished reading and analyzing a great book, It’s Hard to Make a Difference When You Can’t Find Your Keys: The Seven-Step Path to Becoming Truly Organized, by Marilyn Paul, Ph.D. for my NSGCD Level III certification program. It’s written for chronically disorganized folks and provides a warm, empathetic, holistic and patient approach to getting organized, even if you’ve lived your whole life being disorganized.
Paul outlines seven steps on the path to getting organized. They are:
- establish your purpose;
- create your vision;
- take stock of current reality;
- choose support;
- draw on organizing wisom;
- take effective action; and
- go deeper to keep going
I think many people skip the first four steps in their quest to get organized, particularly the first two, which can be so essential for success. This book requires some time and reflection. But if you’ve struggled with being disorganized and you’re really ready to make some change, it could make a huge difference in your life.
I noticed that right now it’s available on Amazon.com (It’s Hard to Make a Difference When You Can’t Find Your Keys: The Seven-Step Path to Becoming Truly Organized) for the ridiculously low price of $4.99. It’s a great time to buy — and read — this important book.
Are there any other books you would recommend to help chronically disorganized people create lasting order?
