I am just getting started w/ GTD and hope someone can help with a filing question. I have an enormous amount of work on my plate right now and am drowning in things to do and paperwork. My Mom recently passed and she had a small business that I am now taking care of, along with my full time job, and handling the property where her business is (with other tenants so technically property management)... *and* I am the trustee for her estate so I have that responsibility as well. I am trying hard to get a grip on everything so that I can somehow pass some of it off, but because I am responsible for it all I need to make sure I have control of it before passing along.
As I am trying to implement one thing I am stuck on is setting up my reference filing system. Davids book says to make it very simple, one system for everything A-Z which makes a lot of sense... but I'm wondering for me if it makes sense to separate the main categories and then A-Z w/in them. For example; Personal a-z; Business a-z; Property a-z; and Trust a-z. I would hate to set it up only to change it later so I would love some input from people that have had experience with this system.
