Thanks so much for this video. I greatly appreciate organization tools, and there's no way I can remember all the ideas or tips and techniques I see online, all in my head. Brilliant. This was very valuable to me. Can't thank you enough!

I love this lesson, not only for myself, but as a way to teach my more experienced students how to organize and create new ideas with what they already know.
