Find your focus – wherever you're working – with Joy at Work.
Marie Kondo's first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, sparked a new genre of publishing and became an international bestseller. Now, for the first time, you will be guided through the process of tidying up your work life. Whether you are unexpectedly working at home or if you have a dedicated work space or office, if you properly simplify and organize your work life once, you’ll never have to do it again.
In Joy at Work, KonMari method pioneer Marie Kondo and organizational psychologist Scott Sonenshein will help you to refocus your mind on what's important at work, and as their examples show, the results can be truly life-changing. With advice on how to improve the way you work, the book features advice on problem areas including fundamentals like how to organize your desk, finally get through your emails and find balance by ditching distractions and focusing on what sparks joy.
Like how the key to successful tidying in the home is by tackling clutter in the correct order, Joy at Work adapts the inspirational KonMari Method for your professional life, taking you step-by-step through your working day so that you can identify the most joyful way to work for you. Once you’ve found order in your work, you can feel empowered to find confidence, energy and motivation to create the career you want and move on from negative working practices.
Kondo (The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up) extends her tidying empire to the workplace with this upbeat collaboration with organizational psychologist Sonenshein (Stretch). The authors contend that tidying one's workspace is "an epic voyage of self-discovery" and "the first and most effective step toward realizing your vision of a joyful career." Kondo contributes four chapters and Sonenshein contributes seven, but their voices work well together and the chapters transition seamlessly. First, Kondo instructs readers in tidying their workspace in order to increase efficiency and refocus on their values. (The rule of thumb for stacks of papers: "Discard everything.") Sonenshein then opines on tidying less tangible matters: digital documents, decisions, and even meetings and teams. Throughout, the recommended method is to view everything at once (nonphysical items should be written on index cards), reflect on what is truly essential or joyful, and strive to eliminate the rest. The authors' program doesn't always transfer easily to the complexities of a workplace (most of their advice will only apply to those who work strictly at a desk) and certain topics such as taming one's inbox receive inadequate attention. Even so, any cubicle-dwelling Kondo-phile will appreciate this inviting guide.
