Summary

Find your focus – wherever you're working – with Joy at Work.

Marie Kondo's first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, sparked a new genre of publishing and became an international best seller. Now, for the first time, you will be guided through the process of tidying up your work life. Whether you are unexpectedly working at home or if you have a dedicated work space or office, if you properly simplify and organise your work life once, you’ll never have to do it again.

In Joy at Work, KonMari method pioneer Marie Kondo and Organisational Psychologist Scott Sonenshein will help you to refocus your mind on what's important at work, and as their examples show, the results can be truly life-changing. With advice on how to improve the way you work, the book features advice on problem areas including fundamentals like how to organise your desk, finally get through your emails and find balance by ditching distractions and focusing on what sparks joy.

Like how the key to successful tidying in the home is by tackling clutter in the correct order, Joy at Work adapts the inspirational KonMari Method for your professional life, taking you step-by-step through your working day so that you can identify the most joyful way to work for you. Once you’ve found order in your work, you can feel empowered to find confidence, energy and motivation to create the career you want and move on from negative working practices.

Useful

The advice was useful but the narrators were distracting. The man spoke in a very odd way and almost sounded like Kermit at times.

Nothing new

Wouldn't recommend this book since there isn't much new information here compared with Marie Kondo's other books. I'd recommend the other two she has written but give this one a miss.

Just no.

No. no no no. Not only is this womans voice just utterly unbearably annoying but she isn't saying anything of value either.

I struggled through two hours of this before giving up, let me save you the pain:
"Stop living like a tramp, tidy your ... up".
There you go, 5 hours of monotonous boring bla summed up into one single sentence which you probably learned when you were 5.

Atleast the first 4 chapters of this book are realy very boring and unhelpful.
For anyone that was brought up right and already knows the value of keeping your surroundings clean and tidy, this book will not give you joy or bring anything new or valuable to your life.
