Melissa, you are so organized! I can see the General Manager part of you! I tend to be more of an intuitive goal setter. I think it's a difference between J's and P's in Briggs Meyers personalities (I'm a P).
I know I can learn so much from J types who thrive on concrete organization. Thank you for sharing your strong skillset with us on organization.
I get overwhelmed with paper. I want to mention that Trello (thank you @Shanna Loga) has been so great for me to use. I organize the "cards" used in Trello how you describe organizing your binder.
So far, I have To Sumbit, Submissions Pending, and Accepted as a baseline for Medium stuff. I'll be incorporating your organizational tips on that platform.
