This book promises to deliver a collection of principles, tactics and techniques that will make efficiency and effectiveness just seem to happen. I was tempted by this fantastic title, and found the book to be effortless to read: It is broken down into dozens of brief suggestions, and the directions on how to put each one into action have a straight forward, no nonsense approach. A lot of it is just about being more organised, but it was fun and inspiring to read. So I’ve decided to take a few of the points I liked best and work through them one by by one.

It could contain your brother’s birthday card, the train tickets for Friday plus the things you need for work this week. I feel good that I’ve made a start. A journey starts with a single step and so on…

How do you get organised?
