The first few chapters are extremely drawn out. I recommend jumping around these to headings of interest or skipping all together, unless you are in need of constant reassurance that you can do it, being right-brained is an asset and organization is not the sole purview of the left-brained you can, in fact, work with those original impulses to create a system that works for you. That is not to say that these reassurances aren't important, they are, even for myself having someone out and out stat...
Written by one of us, Lee Silber, Organizing from the Right Side of the Brain provides motivation, opportunity and hot tips for the creative and the chronically disorganized.This book is designed for easy non-linear browsing and as I read it I used a notepad for a bookmark so I could capture the ideas popping into my brain.One thing I really appreciated about Lee's writing is how non-judgemental he is regarding those of us that do not approach organization in a traditional, linear way. I also en...
This book motivated and inspired me like no other book on the topic. Every time I read it, I had to put it down and go put some of the ideas into action. The author is fun and friendly (he replied to my emails!) and it's a fun read, despite the subject matter. I'm a reformed-slob-in-progress, but thanks to this book (seriously!) I'm getting there.
This book is great for those of us who are primarily right brained.

In the past, when I integrated the cue card system described in t...
I've been reading this book for about a year. I like the idea behind this book, but I'm still waiting to find some actual help -- so far it's been a lot of learning to understand my organizational blue-print. Like we didn't already know what that was!! I've been there and done that. I'll keep reading to find out how to work with myself.
Thank god for this book! It explains why I have such a hard time being "organized." It's because my brain doesn't work like that. I can be organized, just not in a linear way. The tips are great, and the book is even put together in a right-brain-friendly way. Thank you for writing this book!
I love this book!
Lee Silber is a good friend of my husband, Mark's (who is quoted in the book!).Lee never fails to inspire!
If you have the time, this is a great book to read, offers practical steps to take in getting your whole life organized.
I really liked the idea of this book, but there was a lot more of why than how and I just wanted those proportions switched.
In many ways quite different
Is it possible for me to be organized?
One of my favorite authors on organizing - thinks like a right brainer, writes like a whole brainer. Fun too.
