New to the boards and first-time poster! I'm in the middle of reading GTD for the second time and things are really starting to sink in.
I'm about to put together my A-Z Reference system and have a few questions:
1. Manila Folders: What size (letter/legal/etc.) and cut (half/third/etc.) are you using? I'm using half cut. Any preferences? I know DA recommends going with letter size, which I'm also using.
2. Filing Cabinet: Can you describe your set up as it relates to your filing system?
3. How do you organize your "Active Projects" vs. "Project Support" material vs. "Reference" material? I'm looking for some inspiration here and tips on how to sort out these separate areas.
4. Also, my 4-drawer vertical filing cabinet (which my father used for years and now is totally mine) is ideally suited to fit legal size hanging folders. However, in the spirit of GTD, I got myself a box of letter size Manila folders to use instead (and I also have lots of hanging folders). But when I place these letter-size folders inside the cabinet I have a lot of extra space to the left and right side of the folders (i.e. legal size folders are obviously a better fit). So is this extra space thing a problem or am I making a big deal out of nothing?
I'm asking a lot of "GTD rookie" questions, eh? Don't worry, I have many more to ask!
Any feedback from the community is greatly appreciated.
Very glad to be here -- and hope to learn and contribute a lot!
