DISCOVER THE LIFE-CHANGING MAGIC OF LISTS IN THIS INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
The humble list has the power to change your life. In its immediacy, its simplicity and its concise, contained form, the list enables us to organise, to save time and to approach facts with clarity. Yet why do we end up with interminable To Do Lists that are never completed?
After decades living in Japan, Dominique Loreau has become a master in the art of de-cluttering and simplifying. Now, in L'art de la Liste - a huge bestseller in her native France and translated into English for the first time - she turns her attentions to better list-making, showing you how to organise them and use them intelligently.
Taking you on a step-by-step journey to greater productivity, this practical, inspiring book influences every aspect of your life - from home, diet and beauty to mental health and self-awareness.
To perfect the art of the list is to live simpler, richer and more organised lives.
In this wise handbook, French essayist Loreau (L'art de la Simplicit ) updates her 2005 French bestseller to help American readers change their lives by making lists. "By virtue of its concise, contained form... the list gives us an entry point into a potentially unlimited exploration of our lives," she explains before offering checklists for change in five sections: lists to simplify everyday life, such as to make the most of one's time and to take the stress out of holiday shopping; lists for self-knowledge, such as dreams and nightmares and lists of what one has done, but never wants to do again; lists for self-care, such as eradicating the victim mentality and decluttering; lists for pleasure, such as recipes for happiness; and lists as self-portrait, which ask readers to make lists about one's strengths and weaknesses. In a particularly delightful section, Loreau invites readers to make lists of what's good about themselves what makes a person unique, what they are most proud of, and what are their talents in order to help readers reinforce their own sense of inner worth. Perfect for fans of Marie Kondo, this supportive, charming book will help those who wish to bring organization, but also whimsy, into daily life.)
