Sunny Schlenger is a professional organizer, consultant, author and mentor with over 30 years of experience as a pioneer in her field. She helped launch the "custom-tailored" approach to getting organized in the 90’s with her best-selling book, How To Be Organized In Spite Of Yourself, whose approach was licensed by Harvard University’s training and development program. She then took the concept of organizing to the next level by integrating it with spirituality. The result, Organizing For The Spirit was published in 2004. Sunny earned her B.A. in Social & Behavioral Sciences from The Johns Hopkins University and her M.Ed. in Counseling from UNC at Chapel Hill. She has worked with thousands of people, assisting them in their quest for self-realization, productivity and peace. Sunny is a resident of Sedona Arizona.

“Find out who you are and do it on purpose.”

– Dolly Parton

You may remember a commercial from the 60’s featuring a cold medicine whose tagline announced, “A summer cold is a different animal.” That’s how I think of organizing in the summertime.

From the moment we are born, we seem compelled to travel homeward…Despite this primal craving for home, our dwelling places often fail to receive us with care and artfulness.

We all need to cut back and make do with less. So how do we make the hard decisions and still preserve the things we love? I had a lesson on this a few years ago…

Preserving your personal legacy

When you’re gone, all that remains for the living are the (hopefully) treasured memories and evidence of a life filled with rich moments that will be savored always, like long-simmering chicken soup.

I read Sunny´s first book 20 years ago, in my first year at the University.  My freshman year in college was a tough time of big changes for me. In Sunny’s book I found a precise guide and a compass for life.  The book did not make me perfect, but it helped me to learn to enjoy being myself and to take advantage of it. For a long time, the book became a conversation theme with my friends, and they found it a relief to know that they could be organized in spite of themselves.  And more importantly, many took time to think about their forgotten goals, their ideal days, or even ideal years that had not been lived yet. As I saw the impact Sunny`s book had on the people around me, I decided to contact her through e-mail.  She answered back, and we kept talking through the web for a couple of years.  Finally, we decided it was time to start a project in Latin America.  We are still in the beginning stages but already hundreds of people in my beautiful country of Guatemala have received its benefits through seminars, radios shows and web publications. Sunny`s method is flexible, refreshing and full of hope.  It doesn’t teach you how to do twice as much in half the time.  It is a method that invites you to find what you really want to do, and then do it, highlighting the best in yourself. It is always a good time to explore your forgotten dreams. 

Seize the day, seize your life.
