I'm just implementing the GTD system this weekend, and it feels great. I have a question about filing, though.
My wife and I have kept a usable filing system for a while now, but it's messy. I would like to start my own filing system for reference and important documents, but I don't know if it's a good idea to have it separate from my wife's. A lot of our stuff is jointly owned, of course (e.g., utilities, home info, etc.) and will need to be kept in the joint system. Is it a good idea to have my own separate system with things that are only of use to me (e.g., my separate bank account and credit cards, contracts & employment info, etc.)? Or is that too complicated?
I'd love to hear other people's experiences on this issue.
