How is your desk organized?
4ster | Feb 15 2006
I am new to GTD and I need some advice on organizing my desk. Currently, I have a wire inbox and a stack of those lovely black, plastic, stackable trays labled "Agendas," "To Read," "Waiting for," "Delegated," "Someday," and "Projects." In each tray, I have manilla folders, neatly labled, with the relevant stuff in each folder.
I should also say that I use Outlook 2003 for XP with the GTD plug in. It seems like I feel a need to make my physical desk a mirror (with the same folders) as Outlook. The problem is that, on a physical desk, space is at a premium, and I don't like working at an ugly desk.
So any suggestions as to how you organize your space would be most welcomed. It seems like the hardest part of GTD to me (other than writing next actions instead of vague "tasks") is tying it all together (tying Outlook to folders on the computer to physical folders on the desk to folders at home, etc.)
