The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, I was thrilled to have received Joy at Work in a Goodreads giveaway.Marie s already come into our homes and helped us embrace the material items that spark joy and let go of the items that do not I noticed a huge difference in my household after my husband and I tackled this together Keeping our house clean was a lot easier, tidying every day took minutes, and then our deep cleans were quicker and easier too We were happier in our space, our home, which should be where you re happiest after all Joy at Work is by Marie Kondo AND Scott Sonenshein an organizational psychologist While I do not currently have a typical job, I felt like this book would bring value to me in the future and that I d be able to share it with my family and friends that do have traditional jobs As for me, I m a stay at home parent Right now, my family is living with my parents while our home is built which, during Covid 19 crisis, I m sure our stay here will be even lengthier My job is teaching my toddler, keeping him safe and healthy I need creativity, I need strength and energy, I need love and I need innovation to help him thrive Kondo touches on the actual art of tidying your workspace I don t have a workspace here, but it did make me think of reevaluating how we re living in our current spaces here Further, I was able to immediately call to mind my last corporate job and how this book would have helped me then The cubicle I was in wasn t even fully cleaned out from the last employee I had file folders that didn t belong to me or my job and I had no idea what to do with them It made me feel like I was very much in a temporary space Kondo methodically approaches how you need to tidy your space, similar to her method for tidying in the home Even just reading about tidying a busy and cluttered workspace was calming and I could picture how I would have made changes in my past work environment and how that may have lead to joy and fulfilling work Sonenshein chimes in throughout Kondo s chapters with interesting facts and research His input helped answer WHY tidying affects us in such a positive way I really appreciated the research notes and statistics that were provided throughout the entire book Information like that is incredibly useful, especially if you d like to implement these changes at your work Coming to your boss with facts and a plan is coming prepared.Sonenshein s chapters focused on intangible tidying like tidying your tasks, your teams, your decisions This was a unique perspective I hadn t thought of before He helps you organize these intangibles by writing them out on notecards so you can physically see what you have to work with He also gives suggestions on how to rid yourself of tasks or decisions that aren t bringing value to your position while recognizing that sometimes we don t have control over these choices Overall this book was really enlightening I am eager to share it with my husband and see how he is able to apply it to his own work I can see how this would produce joy at work and reduce stress It s available for sale on April 7, 2020 and during the quarantine the world is going through, this may be a great time to read up on some personal development material I d also recommend Kondo s other book and using this time to tidy your home During this time that we all may be struggling to find joy, inner peace and calm, tidying might just be an answer to that for you. i just got approved for Marie Kondo s newest book i ve well and truly Peaked Review copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review Blog Goodreads Twitter Instagram Big thank you to Little, Brown and Company for the ARC Marie Kondo again writes a wholly accessible and applicable self help book Despite being a college student not yet in the professional scene, I still found the advice and tips helpful, especially within the realm of digital tidying up I am someone who considers herself a bit like Marie, in that we both enjoy keeping only what in my case, think we need This book helped me see that while yes, I may be able to find all my things rather quickly, I am still debilitating myself by holding onto everything A very easy to read and giftable book that is sure to help everyone in some way For white collar workers, primarily, but there are a lot of good takeaways here about what it means to have joy at work If you liked Kondo s Tidying Up, you ll dig this.
