"Be honest: Do you keep telling yourself you'll go home and finally organize all those clothes and papers and other possessions that just seem to multiply when you're not looking? But maybe, just maybe, you can't help from thinking that the last time you went to the trouble of reorganizing, it all just magically went back to being messy within about a day and a half?

Join the club. When you have a busy life -- and who doesn't these days? -- it's impossible to find enough time to keep cleaning up the same mess over and over again. You pick up all the papers, and the next time you walk in the kitchen there's a pile sitting there -- taunting you. Where does it all come from? And why won't it go away? Of course, the whole idea of becoming organized is that you won't have to do it over and over again. But have you found that magic system yet? Never fear, if you're holding this book in your hands right now, the good news is that you have!
