Organise Yourself is a concise but comprehensive guide to improving all aspects of personal organization at work, such as determining goals, prioritising tasks and managing your time.
Many people find it hard to get on top of their workload, constantly bounce from one task to another and struggle to prioritise, which can have a serious impact on productivity.
Organise Yourself will help you to develop effective organisational skills and dramatically improve the way you work. It contains vital tips on seeing your way through complex problems, building positive workplace habits, avoiding information overload, overcoming distractions and interruptions, organising work space and filing systems, making effective use of technology and coping with the challenges of working from home.
I became a manager at a rapidly expanding company early in my career probably taking on responsibilities too early. This meant I made probably every mistake there is to make, and learned the hard way. I wish I had read this book back then. Reading it now however has shown there is always room for improvement. I am now planning my days better, not trying to do too much. In short my in tray has never been smaller, my inbox never so managed, my scheduled tasks never so in control. I hope it helps others as it has helped me.
