Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Shape, 12/08
“Use this guide to organize your office—and mind.”

Tucson Citizen, 1/8/09
“This guide provides the structure and the time frame to achieve the impossible: organization.”

Publishers Weekly (web exclusive), 2/2/09
“Readers should find plenty of smart, straightforward and rewarding ways to eliminate chaos from their work lives.”

Unclutterer.com, 3/24/09
“A practical resource for those in need of a complete organizational overhaul and for others who could use improvement in a few problematic areas.”

Publishers Weekly
In the natural follow-up to her bestselling "Zen organizing" primer One Year to an Organized Life, Leeds presents a comprehensive guide to office efficiency. Like its predecessor, this volume is a kind of self-help boot camp, complete with month-by-month and week-by-week guides, with themes ("January: Start Fresh," "March: Stop Paper Pileups"), habits ("Make your bed," "Be grateful," "Say no") and clearly-defined weekly exercises, including tips for dealing with everyday tasks like checking email and booking business travel. Leeds also makes them most of a helpful (if familiar) three-step "Magic Formula" for approaching clutter of any kind: "1. Eliminate 2. Categorize 3. Organize." Some readers may balk at her low-tech solutions: her section on calendar-keeping focuses almost exclusively on the pen-and-paper variety, and she suggests a highly detailed filing system for paper. Still, highly motivated readers should find plenty of smart, straightforward and rewarding ways to eliminate chaos from their work lives.
