Synopses & Reviews
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."
* 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!
"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."
