4 tips for organizing (digital) content

  • Do not organize before collecting. (Let order arise from chaos.)
  • Tune the system to simplicity while you using it (don’t procrastinate in building a perfect system).
  • Try to maintain not more than 3 hierarchies/sub-categories/levels (or folders) from the root.
  • Always organize information by where you use it, not where it is found. (tag them by future need, not by present context)
