Organising From the Inside Out
By Julie Morgenstern

Buy online now at AmazonJulie Morgenstern has written an organizing book that covers a new way of looking at the task of organizing effectively without labelling 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.

Morgenstern's "from the inside out" system begins by laying out the possible reasons for a failure of organization: technical errors (like having a complex organizing system that breaks down), external realities (like not enough space for your belongings), and psychological obstacles (like fear of failure, or success). Then, her Analyse and Strategize steps help create a plan of action based on your needs and goals. A brief chapter called "Attack: Getting the Job Done" offers basic ideas for making space. The largest section of the book, "Applying What You've Learned," addresses the specifics of organizing workspaces, home offices, living spaces, and storage areas.
