Hi everyone, I'm new to the concept of GTD, just read the book, LOVE the 43folders.com wiki, and am really excited about getting this into my life.
I have a question about the tickler file, which I realize David didn't invent, but since it's central to GTD I thought I'd post here: When do the papers in the coming months' folders get sorted into their respective days? Say for example I have a whole bunch of commitments that are due in more than a month's time: Say it's now the beginning of January, and my February folder is very full. Then as I get progressively closer to February, and keep adding the early days of the month to February, I have to laboriously sort through the whole February folder every day to figure out which reminders I can put in their respective day folders. Right? I haven't physically tried this out yet, but I'm just having a hard time imagining how it's going to work. Can anybody help me out?
