I have a lot of old notes from various sources (random thinking, ideas, or seminar notes) and I can't really process them all now as they are not that time pressing and I have other priorities. However, I want to constantly work on processing them. So my question is how I manage that. Here are my considerations:
The notes/ digital files of random thinking and ideas will go to a either reference A-Z. However, here the question is whether I am mixing reference with next actions, since these files are unprocessed and not really pure reference as there is still an action attached to them (i.e. processing them)? So, I was thinking to process them by creating a folder called "old unprocessed random thoughts and ideas" and then put those into my reference, BUT putting a item in Someday/ Maybe called "processing old random thoughts". Would the item then be considered processed? Is it the rightfully in the reference location ...... OR ALTERNATIVELY should I do the following:
Put the folder "old unprocessed thoughts and Ideas" directly INTO the folder of someday/ maybes? Or is that bad practice as I am now mixing up things again?
Please help, as often with this ...so confused Thanks in advance!
