I've been gradually implementing more and more of the entire GTD methodology over the last year, and my work and home life have definitely been more productive and less stressful ever since. Most of my implementation is centered around my laptop, using Outlook for most stuff. I've run into one really silly procedural problem, though: When I have a new project, I create a folder for it and I put anything related to the project (email, research, etc.) in it. But once the project is done, what should I do with the project folder? Deleting it doesn't seem right. Do people keep a set of "finished projects" folders that are separate from their active projects? Or do you take the contents of the folder and put them back in the inbox to decide what to do with them?
Also, has anybody come up with or seen a good computer-based tickler file system?
