After having tried many different ways of organizing work on my computer, I find myself having gone full circle and settling with the ever popular 5-folder configuration, as you can see in the small screen grab. Variations of how these are named can be found everywhere, but regardless of how they’re named, they’re all used in exactly the same way.
The only icons on my desktop are the icons for the drives, and these 5 folders. As part of my GTD contribution, I’ve made available a ZIP file of my GTD customized folders, all ready to go! The icons were collected from various sets from the Interfacelift Mac Icon collection.
