Getting Things Done with Folders

There's always good information to be found at 43 Folders for those of you interested in GTD or Getting Things Done. Merlin Mann has written an article about using and overusing folders in the GTD system.

He makes a good point about making too many folders to put stuff into. Namely, that things get even more disorganized through an overeager attempt at organizing. I've run into the same problem myself in my email program at work. I'm sure many of us have.

Another point he makes is also good to remember even if you are not yet a GTD proselyte: "Bottom line: ensure that all the folders, buckets, nets, and boxes in your life exist to support action above all else." What use is organizing all this stuff if you never do anything with it? Check out the whole article.
