Maybe a silly question, but after reading GTD several times, I can not see which way round the files in the Tickler and general reference should go. Let me explain...
The general purpose files can be up with the spine upwards which makes it a lot easer to see them as separate files and hence see the label on them but the problem is that small pieces of paper can fall from them into the bottom of the filling draw. If I put them open end up, then nothing falls out, but it is a lot harder to see where one ends and another starts, and hence it is harder to quickly see and take out the file I want.
Any one got this clear?
