comment How to organise files and folders of projects to be hyper productive?
DevonThink Pro Office is in this price range, DevonThink Pro costs < 70 EUR. It's not free, but it is a great application and very useful for many people. As I'm still using OS X 10.6, I was not aware of the fact that in newer versions of OS X there is file tagging implemented in Finder. What about Quicksilver? It's free and could help you access your "pure files/folders" solution.

Without any 3rd party software it will be difficult, but I highly recommend having a look at Quicksilver, if you not already have/know it, as it is extremely useful and extremely powerful, integrates perfectly into OS X and your workflow and lets you access files/folders/contacts, etc. easily and quickly.

comment Pomodoro: should I still take a break if I'm highly engaged?
so, assuming that getting into "flow" is in general a good thing and beneficial to the work and its quality, I would conclude from your answer that it is better to skip a break, as long as you are focused and ready to continue working. I've done that myself when using Pomodoro technique, as I usually need it (as described in Jay's answer) to stay focused in face of distractions, and I generally found it positive so stay working longer (and then after the prolonged work time take a longer break as a reward)

comment What is the key to be able to start a project?
so, you achieve the goals, but you are not satisfied?! Is there anybody around you, which gives you respect or positive comments about your work and your skills?

comment What is the key to be able to start a project?
hm, it is clearer now - thanks for the edit. One more question: do you find solutions for the problems (or at least parts of the problems of the project) and are not satisfied by them OR do you just sit "in front of the empty sheet of paper" and do not know how to start and do nothing at all? It is a common problem, that beginning something is difficult, but normally, as soon as you've started, it makes progress nearly by itself...

I'm not sure if I understand your comment about "paying for the chance to find a solution": you mean, you do not want to invest the 14$ for the book? I see that reading a book about a new productivity methods is a risk of procrastination. However I know some people who started with GTD, lost track of their tasks and projects and finally found help in Linenbergers method. Believe me, I rarely buy a book, I mostly borrow them in Libraries, but this is one I bought. If still you don't want to buy it, have a look at the free ebook first: michaellinenberger.com/free1MTD.htm
