Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Overbooking? Running late? Feeling overwhelmed by clutter and to-dos? Management consultant Dr. Marilyn Paul guides you on a path to personal change that will bring true relief from the pain and stress of disorganization. Unlike other books on getting organized, It’s Hard to Make a Difference When You Can’t Find Your Keys offers a clear seven-step path to personal development that is comprehensive in nature. 

Drawing on her own experience as a chronically disorganized person, Paul adds warmth, insight, humor, and hope to this manual for change and self-discovery.  She introduces the notion of becoming “organized enough” to live a far more rewarding life and make the difference that is most important to you.

Synopsis:

A management consultant shows how to overcome clutter and disorganization with her clear, seven-step path to personal development. "A brilliant, provocative, and profound book."--Edward M. Hallowell, M.D.
