The Six Steps to Organizational Freedom

Do you:

*Miss important deadlines at work?

*Forget to return urgent phone calls?

*Lose papers that were “just here a minute ago”?

*Have multiple layers of sticky notes on your computer?

*Leave projects unfinished for days, weeks, or even months at a time?

If any of these sound familiar, then you are among the ranks of the disorganized—whether mildly or completely—and Liz Davenport has written this book just for you. Order from Chaos is the organizing book for disorganized people. In six easy steps she offers a system that will help you clean up your act. She demonstrates how to clear your desk by teaching you what's trash and why, reveals what a calendar is really meant to be, and provides a no-fail system for prioritization. At the end of the day, your desk will be clear and your mind will be free to relax.

Rather than offering overcomplicated instructions for filing systems and time management plans, Order from Chaos focuses on ease of use. There is not one person—from office assistant to CEO—who will not benefit from this straightforward, easy-to-maintain plan.

Synopsis:

Liz Davenport knows chaos. She lived the life of a disorganized office worker for years until the stress of lost papers and missed deadlines became too much. As a completely disorganized person, she knew the elaborate advice given in organization books would never bear the test of her workday and patience. So she sat down and developed a simple, pragmatic plan for order, a plan that changed her life. She now tours the country teaching other lost, disorganized souls her revolutionary plan for success.<P>This book is different than all the other organizing books out there because of one thing: It's easy! In six straightforward steps Liz guts our desk, teaches us what's trash and why it's trash, how to organize the rest of it (and keep it that way), and tells us what a calendar is really meant to be. (By the way, to-do lists, in boxes, flurries of post-it notes, a palm pilot, day planner and desktop scribblings do not count as calendars.)<P>Rather than offering complicated instructions for filing systems and time management "Order from Chaos" speaks simply and directly to the problem — your mess — and what exactly you can do about it.
