I don't like deeply nested AOF systems and I also don't think it works quite right to have so many AOF that it's hard to manage. If I counted each and every thing that I want to maintain as an AOF I'd have hundreds of them. As it is I have a 2 level system with 7 top level AOF buckets:

Under personal development I have these sections:
Maintain an Healthy LifestyleMy projects are within those folders. I personally have a lot of never-ending projects like that and it doesn't' bother me.
Misc. Art Media
I am trying to do a yoga class once a week, weight lifting once a week, bodyweight exercises 2 times a week and an occasional pilates class. So I have projects within my Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle AOF for those items.
One is Attend Yoga and Pilates Classes. The actions within that are repeating ones that are set to start the days that there are classes I can go to.
Another project is Regular Weight Lifting and I set an action that repeats weekly to do a 20 minute workout with weights. I don't have a set day or time so I set it to start at the beginning of the week and be due at the end of the week. That way I see it if I haven't gotten it done this week. I do the same for the bodyweight project.
True, they will never really end but I can't handle having more AOFs to cover every single recurring or never ending project.
