Guitar chord notation form (adapted from incompetech.com)

A page of unmarked guitar fretboard images for chord notation, adapted from the one generated at Kevin MacLeod's Free Online Graph Paper/Grid Paper PDFs page.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Thumbnail: 
Usage advice: 

With Kevin MacLeod's permission, I've adapted this page of guitar fretboard images to ensure there's enough room for hole punching. Mark down the fingerings for your favorite chords, in an order that make sense to you, or draw out the chord progression of songs.

The 1-up file includes front and back for duplex printing on 5.5"x8.5" paper. Printing the 2-up file with a duplex printer requires that the printer be set to long-edge duplexing, as the first page is upside down with respect to the second.

System Administrator Daily Page

Updated! Tweaked a bit to look more like the DIY V3 format and I made it 2-Up so I could print it on my duplexing printer. This is a daily calendar page with an incorporated to-do list. It is based on the calendar page in the O'Reilly book Time Management for System Administrators by Thomas A. Limoncelli.

This is a daily calendar page based on the page in the book Time Management for Sysadmins by Thomas A. Limoncelli. It has a schedule on one half of the page and a To-Do list on the other.

The To-Do list has an area for prioritizing and estimating the time to complete the item.

There are front and back pages for both 12 and 24 hour time.

Simple Notes (8.5 x 11)

Keep track of glasses of water and number of hours of sleep with this Hipster PDA template.

Paper size: 
Index Card (3 x 5)

Use this template to keep track of your water intake and sleep! Each card conveniently holds a week of data. Mark glasses of water as you drink them, and hours slept when you wake up. Connect daily columns with lines in order to see trends over a week, and lay several cards side-by-side to see trends over longer periods of time.

(As you can see, I've not been getting enough sleep or water lately... Meep!)

FlyLady Planner Pages

UPDATED to include new PDF and PowerPoint file:

This is a customizable kit based on the works of Marla Cilley, AKA FlyLady. I basically wanted my control journal to fit with my main planner size and look well put together. I have included a PDF for printing and an editable PowerPoint file based on the D*I*Y Planner Widget Kit.

Here is the PDF https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_gz9_jTn86hZVhNbUlCNXRZbDQ...

Here is the PowerPoint https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_gz9_jTn86hRXlGa1cwWGZ4Y00...

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Usage advice: 

I made this because I use FlyLady's info, but had a hard time with her standard letter size planner. It has all basic tips for organizing things the FlyLady way and all the main routines. The PDF file is one-up, but is easy to print 2-up using the Multiple pages on a sheet option.

Book At A Time Bible Reading Plan

A template designed to aid in your bible reading. It lists books of the bible by "average reading time" and provides a place for notes as you read though the bible.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Usage advice: 

The template will give you an overall view of how long it takes to read through each book of the bible so as you have time, you can look at the "average reading time" on the template to pick the books you'd like to read depending on your time available. I've used this on long flights to read an entire book of the bible as I've flown. It's quite helpful and only takes three classic size pages (double sided) to list all 66 books and leave space for notes. For a specialized reading plan that you can use in concert with this template, see Woodrow Kroll's book "Read your bible one book at a time".
