Overview


Twenty years ago, the author’s The Woman’s Comfort Book became a bestseller because it addressed women’s yearning to have time for personal needs and dreams in their have it all / do it all lives. This yearning persists as technology, job insecurity, and financial belt-tightening — not to mention women’s perennial fear of being labeled “selfish” — makes “me time” ever more elusive. In The Life Organizer, Louden innovates anew with ways to augment traditional goal-setting and step-taking with the ease that comes from gentle attention shifting and mindfulness. The heart of the book — 52 two-page spreads, one for each week of the year — is surrounded by playful, thought-provoking questions; practical life-organizing tips; life check-in prompts; and dozens of inspiring stories from women who have used the tools. On every page, day-by-day and week-by-week, readers discover the kind of inner knowing that fosters true achievement and real fulfillment.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“In this important book, Jennifer Louden shows you how to live with more courage and greater intention, and how to embrace the truth that you are enough right now. You’ll write in it, dog-ear it, and use it until it falls apart. It’s just that good.”
Brené Brown, PhD, author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Daring Greatly

“Jennifer Louden ‘gets’ what it takes to live our beautifully messy human lives centered in our hearts and watered by the wellspring of Soul desires. Here is a book that helps us remember and love the questions that matter.”
Oriah Mountain Dreamer, author of The Invitation

“Jennifer Louden's daily prompts and strategies bring our attention back, again and again, to what really matters to us and help us to infuse our daily lives with the wisdom of our own hearts. This is a clear-eyed and warmhearted guidebook.”
Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness and Lovingkindness

“If time-management checklists and calendar boxes don’t work for you, have hope. Jen Louden offers a colorful, intuitive way to shape your life’s days with reverence and soul. With The Life Organizer at your side, you can make your days holy, feeling by feeling, question by question, intention by intention. (And it works for men, too.)”
Jeffrey Davis, author of The Journey from the Center to the Page

“As a busy creative entrepreneur and mom, I find it tempting to be run by my to-do list. If I’m not careful, I wind up feeling stressed — and I don’t get to fully enjoy the process of all that I’m doing. Seeing The Life Organizer on my desk gently reminds me there is another way, a way to live with joy and productivity. I love this book!”
Karen Salmansohn, bestselling author of Prince Harming Syndrome
