A book is like a friend. We understand the world and life, or even observe ourselves through texts, and have a deep realization of oneself that we are not alone. PMQ invites different people from design and culture sectors to recommend a book, so that you can enrich yourselves as book therapy.

Why would you recommend this book?

橙: The classic Japanese stationery brand KOKUYO has more than one SOP (Standard Operating Procedure). The book is very straightforward, clear and easy to understand, and uses many very life-like examples to illustrate.

The book introduces the ""three-step approach"" to help sort out housework, storage and organization, space planning, product positioning, or data management. The core concept of the approach can work on resolving many different issues - first you will need to write down things to be classified, then work on the classification method, and finally choose the ideal method for the purpose that can solve the problem.

There are more than one way to organize your things. Clothes can be folded but some like to hand them. Some may just put them on the chair. Don't be framed by the existing ways of doing things, think in different perspectives and find your perfect way to solve your problems. After reading this book, I think the alternative title of the book can be 《傷腦筋的話,就Be Creative吧!》
