Most of the conventional productivity advice you'll find in the soft business section simply does not work for creative people. Surprisingly, to date there has not been a single book or audiobook that addresses the unique organisational challenges that artists face. This audiobook sets out to change that, and it addresses the myth that truly creative people are messy and that they need mess in order to create. Sheila Chandra applies her professional insights as a creative and organizing expert to the lives of other busy creative people in all disciplines.

This book didn't hold my interest. As a creative person, I was looking for creative solutions to organize chaos. This book did not deliver.

Save your life from your stuff with minimalist living. Declutter your home. Live simply. Save money. Learn mental tricks to want what you already have, instead of always craving more. Minimalism doesn't mean you live in a bare apartment and own three shirts. Minimalism means cutting out the things in your life that waste your time, energy and money, so you can spend time on the things you love and cherish most. It's true: Less is more.

A minimalist book on minimalism. Good points touched on but needs more depth. Still enjoyed the listen.

Author offers practical and doable program to keep home clean and organized. I've got my own collection of cleaning and decluttering books but this one is the best! I also like that she shares her recipes for natural cleaning products.

Francine Jay pioneered the simple living movement with her self-published bestseller, The Joy of Less. In this fully redesigned and repackaged edition - featuring never-before-seen content - Jay brings her philosophy to more listeners who are eager to declutter. Rather than the "crash diet" approach found in other tidying up books, Jay shares simple steps to cultivate a minimalist mindset and form new habits, paving the way to lasting success.

Although some technique and advice are impractical the essence of the book are both good and motivational. The most helpful chapters are in the last third of the book.
