 organizing-from-the-inside-out

Organizing from the Inside Out, second edition: The Foolproof System For Organizing Your Home, Your Office and Your Life
by Julie Morgenstern

Julie Morgenstern has written an organizing book that covers a new way of looking at the task of organizing effectively without labeling or blaming the person behind the lack of organization. Rather, she says, people who don't organize just never learned how to organize, through no fault of their own--after all, it's not a skill that's taught in school.

That said, she gets down to work helping you figure out an organizing system that will really work for you, not a system based on cookie-cutter filing concepts or special storage units.

Time Management from the Inside Out, second edition: The Foolproof System for Taking Control of Your Schedule -- and Your Life
by Julie Morgenstern

In Organizing from the Inside Out, author Julie Morgenstern used three main strategies to whip a living space or office into shape: "analyze, strategize, attack." Using the same system, Morgenstern now shows readers how to get rid of chaotic schedules in order to live more comfortable and productive lives.

Morgenstern likens a cluttered schedule to a cluttered closet. For example, a closet is typically "crammed with more stuff than storage," and a schedule is typically "crammed with more tasks than time."

This is "bit literacy," a method for working more productively in the digital age, with less stress.
