Have you ever wished that “getting organized” were a little easier, a little quicker, and a lot more fun? Well now it can be! You’ve got to learn your ABCs before you can read—and the same is true when trying to declutter, simplify, or increase productivity. We’re going back to school and back to the basics!
Those gigantic “change-the-way-you-do-every-single-thing -in-your-life-all-at-once” tomes are just too overwhelming for most folks. And many times, they look at strictly “surface” issues (like what sorts of containers work best or which filing categories to use)—instead of dealing with the reason things got so out-of-control in the first place.
Rather than offering millions of specific time-, paper-, or space-management tips (which may or may not be appropriate for your situation), these 26 fundamental “principles” tackle the underlying causes of disorganization. Each pairs a valuable lesson with an amusing illustration to drive the concept home, and can be applied to any area of your life—physical items as well as intangible responsibilities, at home or on the job, addressing any organizing challenge you can think of! Learning how to create order the ABC-way calms the chaos and clears the clutter—once and for all!
