Getting to know about the importance of organizational skills both at the workplace and in our personal lives is essential. This course was very straight-forward and it helped me to evaluate my current routine at the office and at home and learn how to improve. I am very organised at work but somewhat of a hoarder at home: coffee table books, memorabilia, and vintage clothes... always thinking that my two daughters will one day appreciate such beautiful things... and which to date they never do. So after taking this course I intend to take two afternoons off from work and getting out the three boxes. It is going to be a minimalist vision and venture from 2019 onwards. Thank you.
