Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Get Organized, Get Focused, Get Moving: How to Avoid Productivity Potholes, by Cynthia Kyriazis, is a book that is written to give advice to its audience on being productive and organized. Its broken down into 2 major sections: the first focusing on organization and the second focusing on productivity and appropriate time management. The author bases most of the advice on her own personal experience as a consultant as a professional organizer. The author thoroughly explains organization, teaching the audience how to organize your office in a way that makes it more functional. She also discusses the GPS of Time Management (Goals, Priorities, and Scheduling) to in such a way to help the audience understand ways to better manage their own time throughout day to day living. The writing style is very casual and the author does a great job at keeping the audiences attention in a subject that might not be the easiest to do so. The end of each chapter gives a key point in the form of your "one thing to remember," allowing the tip to be triggered in the readers memory as well as making it easy to implement these tips right away, as well as a list of three things that you can do to get started in that area, and "motivational" quotes. I would definitely recommend this book to those looking to better their time management and organizational skills, as I think that Kyriazis spells it out perfectly in this book.
This book is all about how to organize the files a person deals with in their day-to-day office life. Kyriazis lays out the book in a simple, easy to read format, that is not meant to take away any more of your precious time. It is meant to give you easy steps and guidelines when it comes to increasing a person's productivity. The author uses interesting stories to illustrate her points and to break up the textbook quality of the book. However, there were times when different formatting and blatant numbering mistakes were made that jarred me from the flow. I would give this book a total of 3 stars out of 5 and recommend it to anyone, not just office workers, who are seeking tips on becoming more organized.
This book is an almost invaluable resource for anyone in need of getting his or her work or office space organized. It begins by demonstrating how one woman's lack of organization cost her business a good deal of money because an employee was embezzling checks that she left around in her cluttered office. From there it gives helpful tips through each chapter about how to manage all kinds of files ranging from paper to electronic to email messages. By far the most illuminating part of the book for me, was Chapter 5 in which Ms. Kyriazis shows how one organizes papers is determined by the kind of style he or she exhibits in doing so. It provides various examples of different types of paper management styles and then invites the reader to take a quiz to see which style they would prefer to operate under. Armed with this information, the reader should be very able to put together important materials in a way that can have a highly beneficial impact on their working life. In addition to this outstanding chapter, the book also contains several sections that offer wonderful advice about time management and certain factors that can derail productivity. Finally, the most endearing aspect of the book is that it is written in a way that is designed to help those who feel disorganized or overwhelmed without being judgmental or harsh while proving a guide that is very well thought out and applicable to almost any situation. So, if you need to get your work space, office space, or even another part of your life organized but are having trouble getting started this book can help you. Before you know it, you'll feel more on top of things, become more productive, and feel less harried by all that you must do.
This is the perfect book for the unorganized!! I am a big fan of getting organized and time management. This book gave me great ideas on how to better manage my time. I loved how each chapter ended with notes from the author on things that are important in the chapter as well as a place for the reader to make a note of things they would like to implement from that chapter. It gives you a chance to pause and reflect on what you have read. Highly recommend!! This is a great read for those that need help getting organized as well as those that think they are!! There are little bits of information that can help refine your skills!
Are you good at what you do but not good at managing the business side of it? Or is something holding you back from moving up to the next level in your business, but you can’t put your finger on what the roadblock is? Enter Cynthia Kyriazis, professional organizer and motivator. In Get Organized, Get Focused, Get Moving. Kyriazis breaks down the basics of organizing as it relates to productivity in your business. Her advice works whether you are a solopreneur or manage a large department in a Fortune 500 company. The chapters are short and efficient; they give you practical steps to take to identify and correct productivity problems. She also gives a great list of helpful tools at the end of the book, both paper and electronic. I can’t tell you how happy I am to read this book, as my agency is in an organizing transition now, as our long time secretary left recently. I am tasked with reorganizing a system where I am somewhat constrained by immovable requirements, such as laws, but otherwise free to adapt to the changing market. This book has given me some great ideas for a solid foundation in our management systems, and hopefully will ultimately benefit our clients. I highly recommend giving this a read. Now if Ms. Kyriazis could write a Mommy systems book, I’d be set!
