Publisher's Summary

"I'm so disorganized!" "I can't get my act together!" "My inner life is a mess!"
How many times have you heard (or even said) those words? Our culture produces so many books to help us organize our work, our schedules, our studies, our careers, that we may be tempted to think it is possible to order our inner world by establishing control in the outer world of activity.
Gordon MacDonald believes otherwise. In a "memo to the disorganized", he says, "If my private world is in order, it will be because I am convinced that the inner world of the spiritual must govern the outer world of activity." He breaks down this private world into five sectors: motivation, use of time, wisdom and knowledge, spiritual strength, and restoration, and offers both inspiration and practical steps toward order. These are gleaned from years of Bible study and reading about the lives and writings of Christians throughout the history of the church, and tested in his own experience. Here is a very personal treatment of a very personal problem: how to order your private world.
Please note: The original source for this digital production was audiocassette tape, which is the best available source audio from the publisher. The audio quality reproduces the analog format.

Make sure you understand the basis for this book. It's not about getting your stuff organized. It's about restoring order to YOU from a spiritual perspective. Good stuff and helps you focus on what is truly important: God, faith, family, others, and how to align what you do with your core values. Very enjoyable and insightful.

Where is the updated audible version?

The book has been "updated for the 21st century" and the audible version needs to include these updates. This version is too outdated and missing some great content.
