comment Tickler system for electronic files - how?
do I understand correctly, that you want to read the same article again after a certain time, or do you collect a large number of articles and want to have a look at the long list and choose some unread ones to read next?

comment When the Todo-list/planning becomes an overwhelming task in itself
org-mode is just awesome! :-) I learned to use Emacs only to work with org-mode and it was absolutely worth it, however it took quite some time to get familiar with it (Emacs in general)

comment A software/application to Organize my random sets of data/content/texts/info
it took me quite a long time to get used to it, but it is very powerful and I use it in parallel with Freeplane - Freeplane more for brainstorming, detailed notes in long meetings) and Emacs org-mode for task management and for storing shorter notes from phone calls etc. Ideally both application should work closer together (import/export the data vice versa).

I also use Freeplane and I like it very much. I agree that filtering is not always very easy. That's why I'd prefer a tool like Emacs org-mode for this task.

comment A software/application to Organize my random sets of data/content/texts/info
what operating system do you use? Do you need a fancy GUI or do you prefer keyboard commands for everything? What kind of information do you want to store? Is it all "just plain text" (code), or also other information like proprietary files (PDF, Office, Images)?

comment Restoring integrity after capturing too many ideas in GTD
@Dennis S.: reconsidering the tasks some months later to not have to review everything each week is a very good idea. In Michael Linenbergers Method "Manage Your Workday Now" this is called Strategic Deferral. One of the key elements of this method is: everything seems important first, but many things will never be done (and that's perfectly ok, if they were not really important) - so just let them slip to the end of the someday/maybe list.
