Julie Bestry is a Certified Professional Organizer®, Evernote Certified Expert, and president of Best Results Organizing in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She and I have gotten to know each other through participation in virtual summits where we have both been speakers.

My specialty is digital organization. For Julie, it’s paper organization. Our two different approaches to how to get organized is my reason for inviting her to the show.

Our differing approaches remind me of an old variety show where Donnie Osmond and his sister Marie sing about their contrasting musical specialties. Some of you may remember this song.

We discuss:

  • Whether it’s better to type or handwrite notes when you are trying to learn
  • How to choose a paper/digital planner
  • A hybrid approach
  • What planner Julie uses
  • How to keep up with notes from phone calls and meetings
  • Making things easy
  • The Tickler File
  • The “OHIO” rule
  • How fear tends to drive us
