Setup your folder list

By default you are setup with some standard folders to make it easy to group tasks and notes.

Folders are a list of text labels you use to filter LifePIM data, and to get started it is best to have a key folder for the most important areas or sections of your life.

Good short examples could be : Fun, Games, Family, Home, Car, Business, Study, Health, Sports, Work

and then you can add short specific names that are key to your life or are major hobbies, such as
Dev, Design, Gym, Electronics, Writing

If you want to have sub categories, simply add a hyphen to separate them, e.g.
Home - Renovation
Home - Maintenance

Adding and Importing your data

The quickest way is to get started and make a couple of key notes, some examples are

Home - Shopping List, Renovation plans,
Car - Service Notes
Family - Fav Foods, Present Ideas
