Thread: Fear of OF/GTD
View Single Post
I am getting how you are organizing your projects, and it might be working against you - if you have projects organized in folders by "new business" and "marketing" and "invoicing" etc, then that makes the possibility that one of your Jobs would have actions spread all over the place - and if that works best for you, then great. But it does create situations like the one you mentioned, where a new project comes in the door, and you have to go around to many different OF projects scattered in many different folders to update every action needed to complete this job. I do what whpalmer suggested which is to make one OF project (living in a folder named "Active Projects") for each work project I have open. That way, this one container can have every individual action needed to complete the project - from making a phone call to get the new business to depositing the check in the bank.
