Organizing and Productivity Books

organizing and productivity books

 

 

There are lots of books on organizing and productivity. My favorite organizing and productivity books focus on topics that are more than just “how to books.”   The topics include content that provide insights into the big picture of organizing and productivity.   Some of these focus on what holds you back.  These books promote creating new perspectives and new awareness.  Here’s a list of my favorite organizing and productivity books.

    So many great choices and approaches out there. I’ve read a number of books, and learned something from all of them. I got to read one from a fellow organizer (that is yet to be published) about her growing up years and her mother and how all of that impacted her now. Great read!

    The only one of these I’ve read is “Organizing from the Inside Out” which is excellent. Another one I really enjoyed is “Time Management for Unmanageable People” by Ann McGee-Cooper with Duane Trammell.
