Tried literally cutting and pasting

Printed and cut sections of my long syllabus, taped together

I was having such a hard time ordering the sections of my syllabus on the computer because I just couldn’t see the whole picture. I decided to do something I’ve never done before— print the document, use scissors to cut the sheets of paper into sections according to headings, move the sections around as seemed logical, and tape them together. I then took these sheets of paper back to the computer and cut and pasted the screen text into the order of the printed text. Even ordering the sections physically was agonizing for this indecisive perfectionist, but at least seeing them in real life I was able to see them all at once and organize them. Cutting and pasting on the computer was even more busy work, but at least I had a reference to help keep everything in line. Would I do it again? Probably.
