    A book that speaks!

    This book spoke to me, finally... after spending hundreds on organizational products, gimmicks, magazines, etc. I had no idea there were right-brain, left-brain types of organizing! This book nailed it and inspired me to jump up and begin, the moment of truth was not that day, or even the next, but now a week later when I am still inspired and even flipping to "favorite pages" to read passages to family and friends that really spoke to me!

    Chapter 9 especially showed me how to give myself permission to let go of items that were weighing me down, physically, emotionally and mentally. With giddy abandon I have been organizing yes, but also claiming and reclaiming my life, my sanity and my sanctuary.

    This book speaks as I understand the world, written so well that the words leap off the page to become a lighted path. Where I previously found frustration in my organizing attempts, they not only explained the wall, but also the way around, over or even through it.

    My search for something that works is over... now I can focus on my continued success.

    Professional Organizer Review

    I am a Professional Organizer and member of the National Association of Professional Organizers for over five years. In addition to working with individual clients, I teach an adult education course entitled 'Get Organized, How Can You Become Famous if You Can't Find Things?'. Last semester, I suggested that a student read 'Organizing For the Creative Person'. The next week she came to class with a copy of the book. She said that she said that she cried as she read it: someone understood her and she felt that she was not alone for the first time in many years. I've recommended the book to others as well. 'Organizing for the Creative Person' is a classic. Judy Stern, Organize NOW, Great Neck, New York

    Great book!

    As Professinoal Organizing Consultant, I work within several industries and with many different disciplines. This books helps individuals understand there is no 'right' or 'wrong' way to organize. It's what works for you! This is the ONLY book I recommend to my clients who tend to have divergent styles. It educates, answers questions and helps get you through your organizing dilemmas.

    Helpful for Right Brained Creatives

    I like it because it's so true in her description of the creative mind and how it is different from a left brain type. She gives some good solid advice on how to work with your type of brain. I will need to read it more than once because it's a workbook and I need to learn it enough to put the advice into practice. With the internet as a distraction we have even more reason to focus on what needs to be done and how to stay focused, a problem with the creative right brained person who is flooded with ideas. It has some great ways of writing or drawing charts instead of lists that are helpful in goal and task setting. If you think you are a right brain dominant creative person, this book may help you too.

    Dorothy Lehmkuhl and Dolores Cotter Lamping make it easier for people who aren't comfortable with "traditional" folder-and-cabinet organizing structures to understand why those systems don't work for them.  And why that's OK!!  Lauren Williams, Casual Uncluttering LLC, Woodinville, WA  USA

    Don't Bother

    Really, it was an entire book of "you need to do it the way left brained people do it." Nothing really new or original.

    A Bible For The Entrepreneurial Manager

    I'm an executive in a highly competitive and aggressive sales organization with a colorful mix of 'creative' and 'analytical' minds. Beyond the valuable 'personal organizational system' offered, this book is a powerful awareness tool for those expected to develop people's potential into bottom-line benefits offering leaders a better understanding of how the two types of minds experience and interact with their world, and then how to synchronize them into a highly efficient go-to-market machine. It's very easy to make this book about you but, its true value is in making it work for those that work for and with you - then, everyone wins... especially, your customer!
