From the Inside Flap:

Overbooking, running late, canceling appointments at the last minute, missing deadlines, feeling overwhelmed, losing important documents, or just plain losing your keys - it can happen to anyone once in awhile. But, when these circumstances become a way of life, they can be hard to change.

In It's Hard to Make a Difference When You Can't Find Your Keys, management consultant Dr. Marilyn Paul will guide you on a path to personal change that can bring true relief from the pain and stress of chronic disorganization. Drawing from her own past experience as a chronically disorganized person, Paul adds warmth, insight, humor, and hope, to this primer for change and self-discovery.

Unlike other books on getting organized, in It's Hard to Make a Difference When You Can't Find Your Keys, Dr. Marilyn Paul offers a clear, practical seven-step path to personal growth that is holistic and comprehensive in nature. Drawing from all four levels of human experience: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual, Paul creates the necessary traction for consistent and lasting change. And while most organizing books simply offer good tips for changing the symptoms of disorganization, Paul helps you identify and transform the root causes by teaching you how to recognize habits of thought and action that contribute to disorder, and motivating you to make changes direct you towards a more rewarding way of living.

By combining practical "How-to's" (such as how to empty out your in-box) with the deep wisdom of decades of meditation practice, she shows how to develop a greater sense of inner calm and presence by constructively dealing with outer disorder.

With It's Hard to Make a Difference When You Can't Find Your Keys, Dr. Marilyn Paul has created a roadmap that moves you from chaos and little efficacy onto the path of changing your behavior, emerging from your disorganization, and finally being able to do what you want, when you want with growing presence of mind.
