Making a change in life starts with inspiration, creating a clear vision of what you want out of life, and some guidance to take the necessary steps. Here are the books I read right after I realized getting organized does not come naturally for everyone.
Getting organized is a skill that we have to learn.
In this book Julie Morgenstern, the “American Organizing Queen”, outlines a simple organizing plan that starts with understanding your individual goals, natural habits, and psychological needs, so that you can work with your priorities and personality rather than against them.
I review it on a regular basis and always learn and discover something new.
The philosophy of author Francine Jay works well if you are eager to declutter.
The Joy Of Less is a fun and lighthearted guide to minimalist living. It offers inspiration, 10 easy steps to get rid of clutter and a strategy to tackle your home, room-by-room.
If you are determined and committed to simplify your life, this is the book you need.
Japanese Organizing Consultant Marie Kondo promises that if you completely simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. The book is fun and the KonMari method is simple.
If you easily let go off things (and have not struggled with disorganization all your life), asking if the item “brings joy” might be all you need to do to bring order to your life.
Happy reading (and don’t forget to take action as well, reading alone does not do the trick)!
