    This contained a lot of information and good ideas. I already do some of them but see how I can make adjustments and improvements.
    Thank you!

    I found this very interesting and helpful to the point that I will be renaming many of my scanned files since I am currently in the process of reorganizing!

    I confess–I had an extremely constrained view of what needed to be organized–paper! Billie illustrated that there can be so much more and that we need multiple strategies for multiple types of sources. I like that she emphasized the need for each of us to understand how our own brains work and to work with those strengths and weaknesses, rather than against them.
