Organizing and tidying up has become a national obsession. We are on an endless quest for the perfect containers, boxes, totes, bags, bins, shelves, files, folders, and labels to tame our closets, corral our clutter, and eliminate chaos. Books and television shows promise the magical secrets to getting and staying organized. “So,” you think, “if I just buy these things and follow these instructions, I will finally be organized and joyful!”
Author Lisa Lawmaster Hess is going to let you in on a secret: that doesn’t work.
Why? Because you have been chasing one-size-fits-all solutions. But you are not a one-size-fits-all person. You’re unique. (Just ask God, who created you!)
Know Thyself is an effective and fun way to discover your personal and organizational styles, and will help you own your style. You’ll take what you might have thought was a flaw and learn how to make it a strength. And that, plus Lisa’s help and a sense of humor, will guide you toward an organization method you can really stick with.
