  • If you are going to pursue this as a career, I'd recommend a psychology class or two ... people are very weird when it comes to their stuff, even when they say they are ready and willing to let go and become organized. It's as much about their personalities as it is their "stuff". Good luck.

  • Most of the "organization planning" books I've read do deal with psychology so I agree wholeheartedly with the previous posters. Oddly enough, I kinda am myself--I am a librarian by training (cataloging and classification are a big part of the graduate curriculum) and do project management. While you are looking to organize different things than I do, taking an interest in understanding HOW and WHY people use the things they do are going to be important.
