Once upon a time I was helping a friend with some data wrangling. We sat down at the computer and just needed the data. “Maybe it’s in My Documents… No. Maybe it’s on the Desktop. No. … Perhaps I’ve put in in a data folder, somewhere…”
We spent a while on this and it became clear what some strategies, maybe even a system, would be helpful. I decided to jot down a few habits for organising folders that I’d found useful. Some other ideas seemed relevant and this is where ‘Somewhat Organised’ came from.
