Format: Paperback
When I stidued at uni this book had become a huge help for me. I always struggled to organise myself and thought there was something wrong with me (that I was stupid or lazy). This book provides some alternative techniques to organising your everyday life that are easy to follow, but make a big difference. The book inspires you to get organising without the usual fear or disgust. And it is not just the "creatives" who will benefit from it!

I was given this book by a family member who knows I've struggled all my life with organising, who knows I'm a designer and thought this might help. I have also been diagnosed with adult ADD in my early 20s. I would recommend this book to anyone who feels that their style is not suited to the typical linear approach to the world, whether they see themselves as "creative" or not. I don't even really believe in the whole Right vs Left brain stuff, however the descriptions definitely suited me and I think would suit not only typical artist types but also those with ADD. It recognises that we need a different style of organising, and tackles some of our habits that make it hard to be organised, like feeling that we need to see our work in front of us at all times, being afraid to hide tasks away because we'll forget about them, having a hard time estimating how long tasks will take, a tendancy towards clutter, procrastination, being easily distracted by interruptions, etc.
There's also a very reassuring tone to the book - it points out that there is nothing wrong with being this way, you just need a different system to make it all work than others do. I don't particularly like her terms, such as Arbie and Leftie (as if we're so simply divided in two groups) but I just ignored those parts I found a bit cheesy and did find the actual organising advice much more useful than most other books I've tried. If you've tried more typical advice before and it didn't work, give this a shot.

I originally brought this book in 2001 and skimmed it telling myself that I would evenually get round to reading it. I never did, and it sat on my book shelf gathering dust. I recently took it out to get some ideas and was quite surprised at how much useful information unfolded.

It is not just a book about organising, it gets you to look at your style of working and develop strategies working more like a coach come personal organiser. I had many 'aha moments'. It gets you to think about your goals and then offers suggestions that really challenges your thinking but also enables you to set up systems to support, with key points summarised at the end of each chapter. You get to look with new eyes at your environment and more importantly how you interact, helping you to find the style of organising that works with your personality and those around you.
