    I am new to GTD and have started & stoped twice doing my first sorting throught my stuff and will be starting again today. Keep going off track but at least I am regrouping and starting again.

    While doing the sorting this last time a question about projects came up so I looked on the forum and got a little confused.Here is my situation.

    I have several large projects and started breaking them down in my folders by smaller sub projects and was wondering if this is over kill.

    Example I have a stand a lone business that 93% of it is on the internet and have several things that are ongoing and several things that our current right now but will end for at least a year or long once I complete them, so I started filing the folders as follows

    ABC web site (main folder)
    ABC budget 07
    ABC web design
    ABC product sales copy
    ABc Marketing Ideas
    ABC marketing current
    ABC current products
    ABC product ideas
    ABC accounting
    ABC bank Account
    ABC checking account
    ABC advertizing classified
    ABC advertizing TV
    ABC advertizing internet
    ABC article ideas
    ABC articles
    ABC PR's

    Ect, ECt

    My logic was I am redesigning the web site, adding a couple of new products so new sales copy, writing articles for release every month, Researching and buying various types of advertizing, writing some PR's releases, researching testing new products, do accounting, test & research marketing, set up budget twice a year, and so forth and so forth.

    Plus I have general reference folders called marketing, marketing ideas, product ideas, new internet business ideas, new off-line business ideas and a few more that are duplcates of the ABC sub-catagories.

    Is this too much duplication?
    If not to much do I make a next action list for each sub-catagory? I will be doing some of the sub-catories at the same time as others.

    I find to a point that all the sub-catagories make it easy to find a few things but it is probably to early for me to be able to tell if it will be simple enough to work the system.

    Would appreciate any information from people have have a lot more experience doing the GTD system and have already gone through some or all of these things.

    Thanks for the help

    In GTD there are no hard rules for this. I guess it's because here you have to start deciding how you work. GTD can't do this for you.
