About the author (1995)

Jeffrey J. Mayer, born in 1950, is a leading authority on time and money management. Even as a child, Mayer had a passion for orderliness. He started his career as an insurance executive in his family's firm in Chicago, but his real success began when he became a consultant and began to spread his message. Mayer believes that clutter negatively affects productivity. He says that a clean desk is more efficient than one filled with papers, even though a messy desk makes a person appear to be busier. To manage the clutter, he advocates the use of file folders and lists. Mayer has written numerous books on organizational management, including several in the popular Dummies series published by IDG Books; titles include "ACT! For Windows for Dummies: If You Haven't Got the Time to Do It Right: When Will You Have the Time to Do It Over?" and "Time and Money Management for Dummies." In 1984, he founded a consulting firm, Mayer Enterprises, and is highly regarded as a speaker and consultant to corporations and businesses. In addition, Mayer publishes a newsletter titled ACT! In ACTion. In it, he promotes and explains his methods for managing clutter and saving time and money. He has been profiled in such magazines as People Weekly and USA Today, and has also written software programs on organization and time management.
