Do You Feel Overwhelmed?

I speak to many people when I present workshops and they typically have one major thing in common. They are All Overwhelmed! You are visiting my website because you want to get organized, but just the thought of tackling an entire room makes you stressed and anxious. You would rather be doing anything else at that moment so you continue to make piles and ignore the chaos because it’s easier to function that way instead of actually tackling it. This feeling of overwhelm spills over to other areas of your life because the visual and mental clutter will stick with you. When people are overwhelmed they tend to waste energy. They get stuck and get busy but not productive.

(Look at the photo below to see the finished project.)

Book Review

The Organized Mind

Book - The Organized MindI just finished reading the non-fiction book THE ORGANIZED MIND: THINKING STRAIGHT IN THE AGE OF INFORMATION OVERLOAD by Dr. Danial Levitin who included loads of scholarly research.  The author, a neuroscientist himself, tells us in the book that recent neuroscience research has learned a lot about the brain in relation to organization and productivity, but it hasn’t trickled down to the average reader. His aim was to bring the science to the average person.
