Publisher's Summary

Stop paying the high cost of disorganization. 

Late fees on forgotten bills. A home full of clutter and unfinished projects. Eroding respect with your friends, family, and colleagues. Health worries from doctor's appointments you keep meaning to schedule. Nonstop anxiety as you wait for the other shoe to drop. 

You deserve better. 

Order from Chaos will teach you how your brain works and how to stop getting in your own way. Mixing stories from the trenches of her own experience as a mom and wife with ADHD with wise, well-researched advice from her years as a blogger at the ADHD Homestead, Jaclyn Paul shows you how to design your own system for restoring order. 

Past failures don't have to define you. Order from Chaos offers a helping hand to get you on the path to a more peaceful and rewarding life.

So hopeful!

I bought this book, hoping to learn a little bit more and grow in my ADHD
... and BOY did it exceeded my expectations. It is practical, motivating and clever. Never boring. I naturally and intuitively heard the authors message from chapter 1 forward, and saw changes and growth right away. Must read for anyone struggling with adult adhd.

LOVED this book!!!!!!

Instead of giving one solution, she helped me think about how to problem solve my own life. The ideas and examples that she's gives are helpful and inspiring, and the way she frames them have helped me to be able to transfer pieces that would work for me, and let go of things that wouldn't. Loved the narrator too!

Helpful and Validating!

This was the first book I read after my ADHD diagnosis and it was INCREDIBLY validating, but not only that, it gave me so much hope that I’m not destined to always feel like a mess. There are so many actionable takeaways packed into this book!

Very well written

Some of the content in here I was already aware of but a lot of it was very helpful to understand my ADHD and validate why my brain reacts to certain things in certain ways. It also helps to explain how to counteract your ADHD tendencies rather than just throw up your hands and essentially give up in frustration at trying to go about things like a normal person would and failing multiple times rather than just accepting your dx and managing how your brain reacts to situations differently from a neurotypical would. It helps put a lot of things in perspective and creates new ideas for managing your ADHD as it is rather than trying to fight against it.

LIFE CHANGING!

Whoa. That's what comes to mind. Whoa.
This book changed my life. I was recently diagnosed with ADHD in my mid 30's and this book brought so much to my soul. I'm not alone. I'm not broken. I can fix this. I can stop feeling like I'm juggling 100 balls and dropping 98 of them constantly. I still have 100 balls but now I know that I don't have to carry all of them at the same time. I can create containers and find their place in the right container so I know right where to go when I need it.
This has made me a better mother, better woman, better educator and a better human. I found self love within this book and I wasn't even looking for it. ❤

I Wish There was a .pdf

Good info and many tools I can put into my own practice. It also feels good to not be alone with my broken brain. There were quite a few ‘Take Aways’ and writing exercises that a.pdf would’ve been very helpful with as I drive while listening and note taking was not possible. Some of the tech/apps sounded a little confusing or not necessary as I prefer paper (spiral notebooks). Rewriting everything weekly seems slightly cumbersome but I do believe in handwriting (lists, journaling, ideas etc. ) as I feel that helps the info/tasks really stick.

Must read for ADHD

This audio book was easy to get into. It had a TON of helpful information and perspectives. She also address the "all or nothing" syndrome many ADHDers have. Highly recommend.

it was... ok

As a person with ADHD, I found myself getting distracted by how many time the book said either ADHD or GTD. The whole thing just felt a little scattered.

Perhaps reading the physical book with figures would have enhanced the experience but I'm not certain I could have finished reading the actual book.

learned about things that happen to me

I think I have ADHD because I was hearing about a lot of things I do all the time and can't figure out why. like when I get tunnel vision or constantly distracted

Best book to takle mess, lateness and overwhelm

listened to this four times in a month while stuffing things into clothing banks, bins, charity bags, containment baskets...
The style of organising is sensitive to what I can actually achieve. So many organising books are written for organized people! Not this one! Write more Jaclyn :)
