The Personal Efficiency Program_SmThe Personal Efficiency Program: How to Get Organized to Do More Work in Less Time by Kerry Gleeson

If you want to be organized and productive then Kerry Gleeson has an excellent reputation for being a specialist in productivity. This book is well-organised and sets out a methodology for becoming organized and more effective. It details useful ways for getting organized. For example it sets out an office system for dealing with paperwork effectively.

However it is particularly useful and informative in discussing less familiar organizational techniques, such as planning chunks of time to deal with similar tasks, using technology, and establishing routines for maintaining organizational systems.

The strength of this text is in the detail it provides for setting up files and systems and following through on organizational initiatives. In providing examples, this book outlines case histories in re-organizational initiatives. In outlining these cases Kerry Gleeson sets out her basic principles in common sense ways. And when you’ve read about the messes she’s had to correct, I promise you, you won’t feel quite so bad about the current state of your own desk. So if you only buy one, buy this one.
