Ich habe es nicht zuende gelesen. Der erste Teil war recht interessant, das Leben einfacher machen durch Ordnung und schematische Abläufe. Das leuchtet ein, ist aber auch nicht neu. Gerade die Schreibtischordnung finde ich beispielsweise in "Die Dinge geregelt kriegen" ein bisschen besser beschrieben, wenngleich sich die Prozesse nur in Details unterscheiden.
Ich glaube daran, dass die äußere Ordnung der Umgebung Einfluss auf das Denken und das Unbewusste hat. Ordnung kann Sicherheit geben.

I was somewhat disappointed. The book has a very good idea, but it doesn't give you any detailed advice. I'm not sure if it's that helpful in the end. The worst thing was the constant emphasis on spiritual things, prayers and some texts from the Bible. That was a real turn-off for me.

"Simplify your life" este o carte care oferă o viziune optimistă asupra conceptului de timp şi gestionarea acestuia. Redactată într-un limbaj cât se poate de simplist şi accesibil tuturor vorbitorilor de limba Engleză, soţii Marion şi Werner Tiki Kustenmarcher oferă o serie de sfaturi care nu se rezumă doar la organizarea activităţilor (de-o importanţă primordială sau secundară), dar şi la salvarea timpului liber în favoarea dezvoltării profesionale şi spirituale a unui individ.

It’s okay. But it’s mainly an accumulation of rules, do’s and don’ts.

Some “rules” are common sense (e.g. “Keep your kitchen counter top free of stuff!”), others totally unnecessary (e.g. “When done washing, take clothes out of the washing machine!” well, duh), and one here and there is actually pretty clever.

Kustenmacher tells me what to do (“Clean your storage room out!”), but not well enough *how* to do it and motivate myself.

The reading experience it is about as much fun as reading a gramm

Das Buch beinhaltet viele gute, kleine Ratschläge, mit denen man sein Leben "optimieren" kann. Einige kann man allerdings auch getrost vergessen und wieder andere sind mittlerweile einfach nicht mehr aktuell (z.B. beim Thema Finanzen).
Insgesamt habe ich nicht viele neue Dinge gelernt, wurde aber zu einigem wieder angeregt, was ich mir schon einmal vorgenommen hatte.
"Simplify Your Life" ist also auf jeden Fall zur Lektüre empfohlen, allerdings mit der Einschränkung, die wir auch schon von Paulus

I've read quite a few books on decluttering, sorting, simplifying, but they've all been written by Americans. I thought Germans might have a different perspective, and they do, but it's very much efficiency and work-focused. This book was a real struggle to get through; it could've done with a bit of American pizazz to make it less of a chore to read. It was also hokey at times, and poorly translated and edited. Disappointing.

This book is a condenced version of a hughe number of self-help books, and covers (among other things) how to get work done, how to keep things tidy, personal development, relational issues and so forth and so on...
A quite entertaining read, and I picked up a few points along the way.

This book is about simplifying 7 areas in your life: your things, your finance, your time, your health, your relationship, your life partner and yourself. Some practical advices here and there, but is a little too diverse to cover much depth in some areas.

I really loved reading it! You can get a lot out of that book. It's a guide that will tell you how to do some things to have a more simple but happier life :)

Im Buch sind ein paar sehr gute Ideen und Vorschläge beschrieben. Aber einiges/das meiste davon ist einem denke ich auch so bekannt. Trotzdem lesenswert, um wieder einmal den nötigen Anstoß zu erhalten.

Recommends it for: people who feel unorganized
Practical guide to organizing your life. Real good but takes time to go through and halfway through I felt I had to restart again...
