Articles

At Best Results Organizing, we know that people learn in different ways. Upwards of 65% of the population can be considered visual learners who rely on observation, note-taking and written material to gain perspective. For those of you who consider yourselves visual learners, this section offers a collection of articles to help you get organized, manage your time and resources, and motivate you stop procrastinating and start living the life you want.

For the 30% of the population who are auditory learners who respond best to spoken words and aural teaching methods, we plan to have MP3 audio lessons and CD courses in the near future.

And if you think you fall into the 10% of the population who are kinesthetic learners – those who learn “hands-on” by doing — or if these articles help you decide you are ready to take what you”ve learned and apply it on your own or with the help of a professional organizer, please visit the Resources page. There, you’ll find products for helping yourself get organized, ways to contact me if you’d like telephone or internet coaching, and information about finding a referral to a professional organizer in your area.
