Publisher's Summary

Do you walk in a room to organize and find yourself paralyzed and overwhelmed?
Do you find yourself spending money on organizing solutions that don't work?
Do you feel like you put in effort but never make any progress?
Or maybe you know exactly what you want to do, and yet for some reason, you just can't get started.
Organizing isn't easy. And having ADHD doesn't make it any easier.
But it doesn't have to be impossible.
If you have ADHD and you've been struggling with organization, it doesn't mean there's something wrong with you.
It just means it's time to try working with your brain instead of against it.
That means:

Understanding how your mind works
Recognizing your strengths and weaknesses
Finding the strategies that work for you

In her latest book, Lisa Woodruff explores the executive functions of the mind that directly affect your ability to organize your home: flexible thinking, working memory, self-monitoring, task initiation, planning, and organization. Along the way, she provides tips and strategies for overcoming obstacles - tools you can use to get the organized house you've been dreaming of.
As a professional organizer, productivity coach, and former teacher, Lisa Woodruff knows that organization is more than just 15-minute daily tasks or cute ways to use fun containers. She's successfully parented, taught, and professionally organized people who struggle with ADHD, and she has been able to help hundreds of women in Cincinnati, Ohio - and thousands of women around the world - get their homes organized and keep them that way.

Good but not great

I was expecting more information about techniques for people who have ADHD. However, instead, she references her podcast and /or blog posts by #. Which means you have to go somewhere else to find information. The last part of the book is about her reviewing apps. Had a lot of good info but be ready to have a pen & paper to write down other resources since this isn't all inclusive.

This is little more than advertising for services that you pay for. Ok material if free and good presentation but I got the gist that it was advertising foe the writer's website and professional services.
