New category: 'Systems'

@Anklebuster A new category for talk specifically about your own system, example systems, etc. :slight_smile:

(For the historical record, ref. this post.)


Have I confused the terms here? Or should I rename the other category (‘The J.D System’)? Lemme know.

Thanks for creating a category for discussion!

As for the title, I’m not sure. “Systems” might make one think of tools for using JD. How about “Set-ups” or some term specific to the outlines we use to present our JD structures. (Hmmm…“Structures”, “Outlines”?)

I’ll be getting a new computer next week. In a perfect world, I could set up a Johnny.Decimal folder structure and never again wonder where my files are.

The challenge is getting just the right set of categories. I’m not overly happy with my current outline:

I’m using @ekafyi 's Drag and Drop app, so making changes is a painless process. I manage 00-09 manually, since the app starts with 10-19.

I would love to see some other setups and also to get some feedback on mine.

“Sharing your setup”?


That works :slight_smile: It also promotes engagement.

Just setting up a JD system - it would be SO GREAT to see examples for personal and business setups. Thank you @Anklebuster for the example below - gave me a couple of big “oh yeahs!”. :slight_smile:

I’m having a great time - I’m merging 2 dropbox systems, 2 google drives, iCloud Drive and local file storage into one system. Feels amazing.

That’s great! Sounds like you have a major consolidation project in the works. I’m glad you liked some of my categories. Funny thing: even though I don’t particularly like the overall division that I’ve chosen, I have gotten used to them! So much so, that I recreated the entire folder structure on my new laptop.

I have posted it in Discord here:
