How Is Organizing Related to a Fuller Life?

Treat yourself to a quick read with The Other Side Of Organized: Finding Balance Between Chaos and Perfection by author and professional organizer Linda Samuels, CPO-CD©.  If you are chronically disorganized and have read book after book on how to organize, you will find something different about this small book of multiple brief passages.

The author’s focus is more about how organizing can help you move into a more joyful and content life. Here’s how Ms. Samuels explains it:

While I admit that as an organizer, finding the perfect storage container excites me, one of the essential organizing ingredients is making the time to celebrate and love ourselves along with the people that mean so much to us. When you find yourself overwhelmed by errands, organizing projects and appointments, pause long enough to connect with the ones you love.

That is only one of the uplifting ideas Ms. Samuels includes in this book. If you are a pet lover, check out the cartoons of her beloved black lab Norton at the chapter headings.

Has getting organized in a certain area of your life brought joy and contentment? We want to hear from you!
