Описание

An astute, accessible, and fun guide that explains once and for all why all those organizing books only help 25% of us

Let your natural inclinations guide you toward gaining control of your environment and learn to live life on your own terms. Drawing on the science of brain function and her experience as a professional organizer, Lanna Nakone offers tailored and specific advice that will actually work to help you tame your desk, unclutter your closet, manage your time, and save your sanity.

Take the Brain Style quiz to determine which of the four parts of the brain you rely on the most to process information, and which organizing style complements your brain function. If you rely on the

* Posterior left section of your brain, you're a Maintaining Style. You develop and follow routines well and adhere to traditional organizing methods.

* Frontal right section of your brain, you're an Innovating Style. Artistically creative, you have a unique stacking system that no one else understands.

* Posterior right section of your brain, you're a Harmonizing Style. Valuing interconnectedness with your family or coworkers, you need to be organized enough to keep your environment peaceful.

* Frontal left section of your brain, you're a Prioritizing Style. Adept at analyzing data, you prefer to delegate organizing.

Chapters specific to each type offer practical tips and strategies for implementing an organizing system, maintaining your system, and coexisting with different brain styles.

Insightful and understanding, Organizing for Your Brain Type turns the task of managing your life into an enjoyable experience.

  • (3/5)
    Enjoyable, helpful, informative, even funny at times - especially when she talks about how people with different organizational styles can clash with each other. The only thing I did not like was that the whole book was not written for me. Once you determine which styles you are, you are only supposed to read your sections. I mean, you can read other sections if you want to, but her advice is clearly directed elsewhere. I felt like I was only getting 1/4 to 1/2 of a book instead of a whole one.

    The subtitle is "Finding Your Own Solution..." and the emphasis should be on Finding Your Own. This book might be interesting to a person who wants to learn about brain styles, but it is lacking in helping you find solutions to your organizing problems. I gave it two stars because I have been through whole-brain training and sensory training and the information in the book jives with what I have learned. The problem is that I wanted to learn more about organizing; this book offers concepts and suggestions, but is short on solutions.

    Overall, I think this book has a great premise: that there is no one system of organizing that will suit everyone. Nakone goes beyond the basic left brain/right brain division to come up with four general types of people, then gives organizing suggestions tailored to each type. I only gave this book 3½ stars, though, because I thought she could have given more concrete organizing suggestions for each type and less description of what the types are like. Plus, she seemed to have a fairly narrow view of what a typical member of each type was like. Her sample Harmonizing Style people tended to be stay-at-home moms while her Prioritizing Styles mostly sounded like male CEOs of large corporations. As a female Prioritizing Style who will probably never hold a job where I'll have an administrative assistant, I would've appreciated more useful organizing suggestions than "delegate these tasks to someone else." (I'd love to - but it ain't happening anytime soon!).
