Organizing from the Right Side of the Brain: A Creative Approach to Getting Organized Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Almost all the organizing books on the market today target the "left-brainer" - people who are generally disciplined, neat, and analytical. But for those who are more creative and spontaneous rather than logical and detail-oriented, help is on the way! In this book, Silber turns traditional organizing advice on its head and offers unique solutions that complement the unorthodox lifestyle of the creative "right-brainer."

For example:

* Discover how right-brainers can be organized in a left-brain world

* Overcome obstacles that stand in the way of being more organized

* Pile, don't file - put paper in its place the right-brained way

* Learn how being a "pack rat" can be a good thing

This creative new approach to getting it together is perfect for those who can't relate to boring traditional organizing techniques!

Review:

"The right side of the brain is the creative but illogical, nonlinear part of the organ, and it doesn't cater to systematic tidiness. Is it possible, then, for right-brainers to be organized? Organizing guru Silber (Time Management for the Creative Person; etc.) has some answers. 'We (right-brainers) can be just as organized as our left-brain counterparts (even more so), but we prefer to do it in our own unique way-with a little savoir faire,' he writes encouragingly. In addition to general principles, like learning to understand 'why you put things where you do' as the basis for a personal organizing system, Silber offers concrete advice: put things where it makes sense to put them; create zones for certain activities and organize accordingly. And best of all, he says pile, don't file your papers: some people do thrive on chaos, he acknowledges, and visually stimulated people can find it helpful to have things in plain view. If you've been fighting a lifelong and losing battle to get rid of the clutter, Silber's sprightly and thorough advice could be the answer."
