Ok for years I've had in my finder the following: Desktop, Documents, Photos, Music, Movies, Systems Pref., Me, Applications. Ok and I also use iphoto separately on my doc. Now I'm trying to reorganize this "mess" the GTD way.
I've got a good desktop system to filter each item that I have to do something with. But that is not my problem. My problem is what to do about the way I have my finder set up. In docs I have certain themes and projects and some of the same in photos. Split up at times and then in the documents file I have both photos and docs in a folder. I understand now that I can set up a project say in the documents file and place all types of docs and media in the projects file. Here's my questions:
1.) Where do you store your projects files? In docs file in finder, somewhere else?
2.) If you have a file of photos you dip into now and then for various projects like a promotional photo of myself, where do you place and how do you label reference photos files of different subjects or themes. Again not being used for a particular project. Say I have 10 promotional photos of me.
So I label the file "promotional photos of John" Where do I place this file? In docs file on the finder or where? In photos? Where do I place a file of docs then if not specifically used in a project?
I hope you know where I'm going with all this. Trying to make sense of the files mentioned above. Thank you for all your help. If a thread exists please show me where please.
