A freind of mine mailed this book to me recently with this note attached:
"Kurt, while I was reading this I kept thinking about you. You'll have to read it yourself to understand why!"
After reading that note, how could I not read the book!
A Perfect Mess chips away (fairly convincingly) at the age-old belief that a tidier, more organized life and workspace is a more productive life and workspace. I'm wondering if there is another profession that feels this tension any more than youth ministry. I really love the early part of the book that breaks down just how much time and productivity is actually lost in the pursuit of order and organization.
My friend was right. It seems like I'm seeing myself on every page.
