The old saying, “Organized desk, organized mind” has some truth to it; but the reverse, “Organized mind, organized desk” is more accurate. It’s difficult to organize anything without a well-rested, healthy, creative and focused mind that is able to plan, think clearly, make good decisions and visualize end results.

In this brief book, Harold discusses the importance of sleep and its impact on personal productivity, organizing skills, and health and well-being. He also offers suggestions on how we can develop good sleep habits, work with our biological clock, take advantage of peak energy levels, and gain extra time through a holistic approach to time management.
