Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My boss bought this book for each of his direct-report managers, in hoping that they will read and benefit from it. Most of my colleagues put the book aside (along with other articles and books to be read), but I read it and applied the ¡°Do-it-now¡± theory. The result is amazing! Nowadays my desk is much better organized ---- only the work need to be done is on the surface and all other files are properly archived (or ended up in shredder). No more mess (and associated stress) and long ¡°to-do-list¡±. The book is easy to read and more importantly, easy to follow. So go ahead, do it now ---- buy the book, read it, and do it!
Author Kerry Gleeson, a specialist in white collar efficiency and productivity, describes a do-it-now program for becoming more organized and effective. As might be expected, this is a well-organized book. Gleeson outlines some familiar approaches to getting organized, such as setting up an office system that deals with paperwork effectively. The book becomes more informative when it discusses some less familiar organizational techniques, such as planning chunks of time to deal with similar tasks, using technology and establishing routines for maintaining your organizational system. The book¿s major strength is the detail it offers about setting up files and systems, and following through on organizational initiatives. We enjoyed Gleeson¿s case histories of reorganizing various offices. She uses many of her basic principles in common sense ways ¿ and the messes she repairs will make you feel like the top of your desk may not be hopeless after all.
