Organizing Your Day - Read It!

Over the past week I have been reading the book "Organizing Your Day: Time Management Techniques That Will Work for You" by Sandra Felton and Marsha Sims.


My review?

It's awesome.

Lately I've been feeling like my days are a whirlwind and I can't get everything done. This book has helped me realize that the reason for this is...

drumroll please...

my days are a whirlwind and I can't get everything done.

No seriously. I have no pattern to my days at home. I fly by the seat of my pants. And I'm trying to do too much. I try to do too many little things that are unimportant, but in my perfectionistic tendencies I think I should be able to squeeze them into my day. And beyond that, I am way, way, WAY too distractible. This book is helping me learn to notice my distractions and try to move past and ignore them.

It's also given my some great ideas for to-do lists. I love to-do lists. (Problem is I never get around to completing them.)

If you have lofty dreams of achieving many things in your life, but feel like you're not gaining any ground, check out this book. I highly recommend it. :)


  1. OH, I think I have the same problem! I'll have to look this book up.

  2. Added to book list :)

  3. It really is a great book, at least for me. I've been taking a lot of notes. :)

  4. Very good to read when you feel overwhelmed by the time-consumption of your child!!

  5. I might! After the other 50 books or so in my stack. :p My sister got me Organizing Magic by Sandra Felton many years ago. I need to read that one again too.
