In the five weeks since I bought Organise Now! (Simply Organise Nov 25) I've organised my books and CD's, recipes (I copied some family ones for my daughters - something I've been meaning to do for years), the car and associated paperwork, back and front door clutter, and a party. Simply one a week.
I do like checklists, though until reading The Checklist Manifesto, I felt vaguely embarassed about saying that! (Surely only repressed/rigid/uptight/boring people make lists and tick boxes?) Maggie's card says it all - thanks Maggie!
The Checklist Manifesto by surgeon and writer Atul Gawande is an unexpectedly good read.
Wide ranging, and a real page turner I found, it is 'an exploration of the nature of complexity in our lives'.
Of the many interesting points he makes so well, I was most struck by his assertion that today, success in many fields requires knowledge that 'outstrips any one person's ability' therefore greater co-operation and teamwork are now essential, not a matter of choice or personal preference.
I would say that probably bodes well for the human race....
Now, what will I organise next....?
