    ITEM#: 3016681

    Marilyn Paul has a Ph.D. from Yale University and an MB.A. from Cornell. She is a principal in the consulting firm Bridgeway Partners, with clients that have included Harvard University, the U.S. Department of Transportation, Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Pfizer.

    Overbooking? Running late? Feeling overwhelmed by clutter and to-dos? Management consultant Dr. Marilyn Paul guides you on a path to personal change that will bring true relief from the pain and stress of disorganization. Unlike other books on getting organized, It’s Hard to Make a Difference When You Can’t Find Your Keys offers a clear seven-step path to personal development that is comprehensive in nature.

    Drawing on her own experience as a chronically disorganized person, Paul adds warmth, insight, humor, and hope to this manual for change and self-discovery. She introduces the notion of becoming “organized enough” to live a far more rewarding life and make the difference that is most important to you.

    • Great book

      This book is great for people who are trying to get their life in order. It not like the other "clutter" books that are out there. This book helps you to identify your feelings about the life you are living when "things" get out of control and start controlling you. It is great for ADD people. It sets off many "A ha" moments that help you to see what you are doing to yourself, and how you can change those things, a little at a time.

    • It's Hard to Make A Difference When You Can't Find

      It's Hard to Make a Difference When You Can't Find Your Keys by Marilyn Paul, Ph.D. IS NOT your typical 'get organized' tome. It is a mentally interactive book that helps one determine what it is that is keeping you from being organized, losing weight, managing time, or whatever chronic "I've got to fix this" problem you have, but can't seem to really tackle. First of all, Marilyn tells it like it is, using herself as a "poster girl" for getting her life together. She gives concrete and funny examples of peoples' problems and outcomes... this is not a book of extremes; rather it is one where you can make gradual changes in personal habits, that over time, replace the problem you are trying to manage. These days, I know EXACTLY where my keys are, and my 'work bag' is ready in the morning so I can leave the house. I also like how Marilyn weaves the sacred into her work. This isn't about organized religion, but about opening your entire consciousness to solve issues that are troubling you. Buy this book at Overstock as it is much less expensive than anywhere else & couple it with a few other books, to get the most mileage out of your order. Loved this book; love items I've bought at Overstock.com!
