This month I have decided to organize my professional books. I haven’t started yet. It is a planned “to do” on my list for the last two weeks of October. So it looms in the near future. I have found that the scope and field of an organizing consultant or professional organizer cover a broad spectrum of issues and business topics. Hence my collection is quite large and takes up significant space.
I have books on
- organizing specific areas within a residence
- storage systems
- time and time management
- organizing finances
- productivity at work
- in-home office design and management
- home management systems
- clothes care
- mental health issues
- AD/HD strategies
I also have a collection that includes books in the area of :
- self-help classics
- reference (dictionaries, thesaurus, quotations)
- writing and publishing
- public speaking
I haven’t quite decided how I will organize these books. What I do know is that I won’t be organizing them by the color of the spine, which seems to be in fashion for some designers and many bloggers of late. I won’t be organizing them by the date written or published. I would never remember that! And, I won’t be organizing them entirely by author’s name or the book title.
So it looks like subject is going to be the way I am going to organize them. Any more ideas out there?
