PRLog - Jan. 3, 2013 - SAN ANTONIO -- Clutter costs! Americans shell out an average $8,000 annually to store stuff in their homes; spend $1,000 per year to rent storage space outside their homes and rack up hundreds in late payment fees—all because of a lack of efficient organization.
ROADMAP to Get Organized - Be successful with your New Years Resolutions
Author and organizational expert Helene Segura says curing disorganization is not about rushing out to purchase color-coded folders and containers, but rather a well-thought-
“Most people desperately want to get organized, but have no earthly idea how or where to start.That leaves them overwhelmed and frustrated, meaning they don’t get started and the disorganization simply gets worse,” says organizing and productivity expert Helene Segura. “Really understanding why we are disorganized takes thought, self-examination and then action, rather than just reacting to seeing a mess on our desk and then either giving up or paying big money to buy products.”
“We are a microwave society. If we can’t do it in five minutes, we throw in the towel. My new book, R.O.A.D.M.A.P. to Get Organized, walks readers through the entire process of change—from contemplation to introspection and then to action.”
ROAD MAP to Get Organized: Discover Your Thinking, Learning and Working Styles to Get Your Life Back on Track, offers seven chapters in seven steps to exceptional organization, so the reader can look at who they are and how they have to work at gaining insight on their own organizational problems.
“The book’s final chapter includes actually mapping out a plan for readers to commit to paper what they plan to do—the action part following this introspective process. This is different from other books on organization which don’t require the mental prep work—and that includes starting with a clear mind—not just a clear desk,” explains Segura. “So the first question is not, ‘what container should I buy,’ but rather what mental changes must I make to implement a different approach to organization?”
“This book will resonate with everyone from perfectionists to adrenaline junkies to the chronically disorganized in letting them know that the road to organization is not a trip to the store, but a self-examination process through a collective and individual identification. How long this takes is up to the reader, since each individual determines the pace of his or her journey.”
Segura will be celebrating the release of her newest book with a launch party to benefit a local charity. The celebration will be held during National Get Organized Month on Thursday, January 10, 2013, from 5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. at The Twig Book Shop in San Antonio, Texas. All profits from the evening's sales of ROAD MAP to Get Organized, along with her first book, Less Stress for Teachers, will be donated to Alpha Home.
