Books I RecommendThere are so many wonderful books on the topics I'm passionate about, so this is just a selection of some of my favorites.
Products I LikeStaying organized and productive is a lot easier with the right tools.
Label Maker – The #1 tool for organizing – get one that prints up to 3/4″ deep labels for larger items.
Student Planner – Students gain clarity about what is due when, making it easier to plan their time and get work done. Separate rows per subject plus a full week at a glance.
Use this pad with Daily Planner Sheets to focus on your priority tasks for the day. Also track important items like things you feel grateful about, water intake and more.
Project Folders – Great substitutes for file folders (easier to manage), or to contain like items within a folder. Clear or translucent colors. Label your Action projects and keep in desktop magazine files for easy access.
Dragon Naturally Speaking voice recognition software allows you to speak while it writes, learning your voice for accuracy. Various versions are available.

Label Printer – This printer attaches to your computer and prints a variety of paper labels, from file folder to address. Network version available.
PlannerPads.com – My favorite planner (more than a calendar). Write your weekly goals by category in the top sections, decide daily priorities in the middle sections, then schedule your day in the bottom sections. Online version also available.
Meal Planner & Shopping List – Eat better while you save time and money. Plan your meals for the week and write any needed ingredients on the adjacent shopping list.
I might receive a small fee for some – not all – books and products, but they wouldn’t be here if I didn’t love them!
The Livescribe series of smart note-taking pens can record lectures, and allow for selective playback.
Magazine Holders – Terrific for converting those horizontal piles to easy-access vertical ones. Group like items and label for content.
TimeTimers – These count-down clocks give a real sense of the passage of time. The red area grows smaller the closer you come to your deadline.
The Paper Tiger – Switch to a filing system that works! An easy, comprehensive ‘finding system’ that gets better the more you use it. End confusion about what you put where. Even works for collections or anything you want to track. Desktop or online versions.
I don’t advocate a particular brand, but I’ve found that work is easier with a full-spectrum natural sunlight lamp, whether a desk or floor model. Florescent lighting can be annoying (and, some studies show, unhealthy). There’s something about a sunlight lamp that I find energizing – just don’t use it before you go to sleep!
Hanging File Organizer from Pendaflex lets you easily see and access your action files, then fold them up for convenient transport.
