Summary:

Far too many people in contemporary culture feel they don't have enough time to "get it all done." The stress of this chronic overwhelm creates a disorganized mind that leads to a chaotic life. Based on her highly acclaimed "Energy Management" workshops, and drawn from over 25 years of counseling and coaching experience, professional trainer and speaker Jackie Woodside shares her breakthrough methods that lead to becoming the least stressed, most productive person you know!
In Calming the Chaos, you will learn the step-by-step skills and thought processes that lead to increased productivity and peace of mind. Jackie's approach stems from the new frontier of human performance called energetic consciousness. Part philosophy, part psychology, fully practical application, you will learn:

- Why there is no such thing as time management and what to do instead.
- How to manage your energy instead of your time and stress.
- The three-step formula for managing every component of your life for the rest of your life!
- Why "to-do lists" are a set up for failure and what really works.
- "The Three Strikes Rule" that will end procrastination for good!
- How to always know that you have the time for what you want and need to do!

Many books promise to change your life. Applying these principles will make this a reality!

Personal Opinion:

The book definitely has promise and is an interesting combination of spirituality with learning to feel peaceful in today's hectic environment. I didn't expect it to discuss spiritual issues such as negative thoughts versus positive thoughts, how to stay calm and how to be more productive. The book asks the reader to change their thoughts and ideas from one way to a different way; one example is using the word productive instead of busy, and of how a cluttered area can block the productiveness. I have to say that some of the ideas that the author presented were a little over my head and seemed contradictory such as the idea of schedule and to-do list because at one point I felt that she was saying to create a sort of schedule, but then the schedule is limiting or something of the sort.
