Dr. Stephen Covey

If you don’t know you have it, or you can’t find it, it is of no value to you! 
~  Barbara Hemphill

Clutter is nothing more than postponed decisions. 
~  Barbara Hemphill

Professional Organizer

These books are by authors whose quotes about organizing are famous.

All of these books have almost nothing to do with organizing; yet their authors came up with these great quotes.


Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.
~ A.A. Milne


I personally find that for domestic purposes, the Trivial Pursuit system works better than Dewey.
~ Nick Hornby


Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 
Regina Brett


One person's mess is merely another person's filing system.
~ Margo Kaufman


First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.
~ Napoleon Hill


I pulled out box after box, setting them haphazardly around the room.
My organization lacked something—like, say, organization.
~ Richelle Mead


Instead of thinking outside the box, get rid of the box.
~ Deepak Chopra
