According to questioner's description, you just need to use the right script, please do as follows:

1. Open a text editor like TextEdit or VSCode on your Mac.

2. Copy the following script into the text editor:

# workflow chapter 2 - wfsetupsingle.sh jsl 2008-05-11
# directory structure for single person

# Get current date in YYYY-MM-DD format
CDATE=$(date +"%Y-%m-%d")

mkdir "- History/${CDATE} project directory created"
mkdir "- Hold then delete/- Delete when space is needed"
mkdir "- Pre posted/- Files being prepared to post"
mkdir "- To clean/- Files to be cleaned"
mkdir "- Versions/- Waypoint versions to keep/"
mkdir "Administration"
mkdir "Documentation"
mkdir "Posted/- Files should never be changed"
mkdir "Posted/- Datasets/Source"
mkdir "Posted/- Datasets/Derived"
mkdir "Posted- Text"
mkdir "Resources"
mkdir "Work/Text"
mkdir "Work/- To do"

3. Save the file with a meaningful name and the extension .sh, like create_folders.sh.

4. Open Terminal and navigate to the folder where you saved create_folders.sh.

5. Run the command chmod +x create_folders.sh and press Enter.

Now, it will create the directory structure as specified in the script. If there are further questions, please seek for professional help.
