This is the type of system I'd like to set up at work, Jason, but I have some questions about it.
I have set up folders similar to the tabbed sections described in the paper-based planner instructions in the GTD web site tips section ("Next Actions", "Waiting For", "Projects", "Someday/Maybe". I have a physical Inbox, email, and voicemail as collection baskets. I have an A-Z filing system in place.
How did the client you described manage his hard landscape? I am considering a simple large desk calendar - the kind that sits flat on top of your desk. (though I am a Computer Systems Administrator - I would prefer to have everything as paper-based and independent of my computer and the network as possible)
Did the client receive work via email? How did he manage that - print it out and get it into the folder system you set up? How would you recommend handling it?
Would you recommend a list of active projects in a Projects folder, and individual project pages with supporting materials in a Project Support folder?
Is there anything else you could tell me about this system? I work almost exclusively in my office, and a folder-based system appeals to me.
Thanks for your time and your generous contributions to this forum.
