I am currently working through each step of the MarieKondo method. I was stunned to have 27 bags of large 40-litre bin bags. I took these to charity. Many of my clothes still had price tags. I had kept these clothes as I felt GUILTY removing them because I had not worn them.

Using the method described in the book, I have been able to let go. What an amazingly liberating feeling I feel.
I love the Japanese folding technique and I can see all my clothes in an instant. Before I used to hang everything. I have lots of empty storage and it excites me about the future I am creating ahead.

Now I have all my books stacked in the center of my room, ready to go through Step 2 of the MarieKondo Method of Tidying.

In the first chapter, Jeff Olson introduces his readers to the idea that every single person on this planet has the potential to turn either into a poor, unsuccessful beach bum or into a successful entrepreneur with a huge balance in his bank account. He tells his own story - about how he went from failure to success to another failure, how he slowly learned that failure and success both happen for the same reason, and that this one single reason can work either for or against you, depending on how you use it.

Would you consider the audio edition of Summary and Analysis of The Slight Edge: Turning Simple Disciplines into Massive Success and Happiness by Jeff Olson to be better than the print version?

I just read the book so having an audio to summarise was just going to help me cement my understanding and learning.
