General Organizing Resources
These references are starting points only and are not a guarantee of any particular product, methodology or provider and are not intended to provide any diagnosis or treatment recommendations. And I offer my appreciation to my Institute for Challenging Disorganization and National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals colleagues for this compilation as well: many of these references come from them, especially the ICD Guides. Please also take a look at my book reviews - you'll find all sorts of fascinating reads!
I also have a YouTube channel for visually- and verbally-oriented materials.
