Marie Kondo, famous for her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up (2011) and Netflix series, Tidying Up With Marie Kondo (2019), has a new book coming out next year, and it might just be what you’ve been looking to improve your workplace.

Called Joy At Work, the book aims to help professionals become more productive and later on, successful, by starting with a tidy desk.

“This book offers stories, studies and strategies to help you eliminate clutter and make space for work that really matters,” Kondo writes in an Instagram post, revealing a sneak peek of the book cover.

Joy At Work is co-written by Scott Sonenshein, a business professor at Rice University, and will be out on April 7, 2020.
