New York, NY -- Bantam Doubleday Dell is happy to announce that its widely-acclaimed guidebook, How To Organize Your Work and Your Life has been totally revised by the author, Robert Moskowitz, to reflect the changed face of America in the 1990s, and is being re-issued immediately and also offered as a Fortune Book Club Alternate Selection.

First published by Bantam Doubleday Dell in 1981, How To Organize Your Work and Your Life was written as a guidebook to the fundamental building blocks of personal success: coaching readers to think about and identify their most important goals, to follow their broadest ranging priorities, and to focus as much of their time and effort as possible on moving toward the goals they really care about.

Since then, however, life in these United States has undergone several significant changes, including the proliferation of computers, the increasing number of people living alone or as single parents, the greater emphasis placed on generating a second income, and the popularity of "going back to school" among working adults. The author has also taken the opportunity to include all-new material on procrastination as a positive form of time management.

The revised version of How To Organize Your Work and Your Life maintains all the strengths of the original, and also covers a great many strategies and techniques for dealing with the time demands and organizational problems that accompany young children. This section will be a great help to the countless men and women who feel hard pressed to give their children "quality time" without sacrificing their careers or their romantic and personal time together.

Because of the growing number of separated families with young children, the book also gives information on how to deal with the different -- but equally important and oppressive -- set of time demands and organizational problems surrounding the fair and emotionally healthy sharing of child-rearing responsibilities. Any family will also benefit from the specific information in How To Organize Your Work and Your Life aimed at more general situations.

One benefit will be to change how you think about time, effort, and effectiveness.

"In my continuing pursuit of efficiency and organization," says author Robert Moskowitz, "and my investigations into the fruitful use of time and personal energy since finishing How To Organize Your Work and Your Life, I have discovered two new areas to cover in the revised version of the book. These include the power of the creative use of procrastination, and the relationships between time, organization, effectiveness and money."

According to the author, many people mistakenly believe that procrastination is always a problem or a way to dodge responsibilities. But by using the techniques in How To Organize Your Work and Your Life, anyone can make procrastination into a favorable weapon in the fight to get and stay organized.

Mr. Moskowitz has identified and developed a number of principles and tactics that help determine when you can profitably use procrastination and when you do better to avoid it. The trick is not only to know the proper techniques, but to recognize when to apply them.

The first thought for getting organized and improving effectiveness is often to work longer hours or cut back on personal time. But in certain situations people can organize better and achieve more satisfactory results through a different approach, that of using time, effort, and other resources -- such as money -- to accomplish what they want most.

Two other important aspects of modern life are:

  1. developing and maintaining a second income, and
  2. going back to school for additional credentials.

The second income is often earned from something like teaching a course in the evenings or running a sideline business, but it can result from anything in between.

Budding entrepreneurs and struggling wage-earners will find great value in the book's suggestions and strategies for organizing their extra efforts.

Similarly, many people are adding extra responsibilities to their days by going back to school for advanced degrees. Trying to walk a line somewhere between the free-form time of the student and the tight scheduling of the full-time employee or professional is a demanding lifestyle that requires the kind of specialized information found in How To Organize Your Work and Your Life.

Underlying all this is one of the most important changes since Mr. Moskowitz first wrote How To Organize Your Work and Your Life: the proliferation of personal computers throughout our homes and our businesses. These machines have transformed many lives and have proven invaluable in helping individuals organize their thoughts, their resources, and their professional or business activities.

Virtually everyone has been buffeted by the computer revolution on the job, and millions of Americans have brought a computer into their homes. Although we face even more dramatic changes in years to come, the revised version of How To Organize Your Work and Your Life now offers many practical suggestions and strategies for using personal computers to great advantage in organizing every aspect of life in these challenging times.
