I love Lorie Marrero‘s new book, The Clutter Diet: The Skinny on Organizing Your Home and Taking Control of Your Life. On this diet, I can still eat chocolate!
A certified professional organizer, Lorie takes a calm, practical approach to the art and science of getting organized. No extreme makeovers here, no starvation injunctions. Just wise, sensible advice and practical strategies.
And she goes beyond storage, systems, and upkeep. Lorie deals with ways of thinking that clarify the mind as well as the home.
You know I’m all about questions–they constitute two of the five steps in my book Clarity: How to Accomplish What Matters Most. Lorie offers four essential questions that I want to share with you here. You can apply them to every aspect of your life. In fact, Lorie urges you to apply them relentlessly:
1. How can I use my time better?
2. How will I remember this later?
3. How can I do this faster?
4. How can I not do this at all?
(BTW, my favorite is # 4!)
