What would you do with three extra weeks each year? Travel? Relax? Spend more time with family and friends? Studies suggest that the average businessperson squanders some 150 hours, more than three work weeks every year, looking for things in his or her cluttered office or cubicle. Taking the time to organize is making time to enjoy the things you really love. In this book, the author of The Well-Ordered Home develops her step-by-step and amazingly easy program for clearing the clutter and making sense of the mess.

Where other books on office organization offer the same advice readers have heard a thousand times, this book cuts straight to the real, deeper reasons people become disorganized: an inclination to procrastination, a yen for perfectionism, a habit of being easily distracted. Drawing on her experience as an organizer and practicing psychologist, the author offers simple strategies for overcoming these issues once and for all. Readers will learn to organize information, make the most of electronic media, and handle interrupting phone calls, coworkers,and e-mails with confidence and grace. Readers who practice these simple techniques will instantly enjoy greater peace of mind as well as saving time, money, and aggravation.
