Reading through “Take Control Of Managing Your Files”, and thinking through file management. A lot of my challenge is in naming things in the first place, and in particular that “inactive” stuff gets mixed in with “active” stuff, so the “active” stuff is much harder to find.
If I’m understanding some of the book’s suggestions properly, they’re suggesting shuffling folders in and out of “storage” as projects become active / inactive. Quite literally, a kind of “skeuomorphic workflow” where you “take out the folder” and “put the folder back”.
I haven’t done much with that, but I remember that workflow from way, way back in the early days of computers.
Do any of you do something like that? Do you have any system organization thoughts you’d be willing to share?
