Chicago and OHIO

Tim Turner is really organized. I hired him for this cookbook project ten (gulp) years ago. Watching Tim pump out shots in his well-oiled Chicago studio topped sampling the dessert chapter.

I noted how Tim effectively used the calendar technique, blocking time for every category: testing, proposing, networking, vacation time and so on. Even with many assistants, only he touched the schedule.

The Only Handle It Once (OHIO) technique is my personal favorite. The truth about organization is that only "you" can organize "you". I have helped many stranded people find methods to manage their own madness.
