Dated monthly calendars May 2006 thru Dec 2007 in MS Word format

Dated 2-page monthly calendars for May 2006 through Dec 2007. Monday through Sunday week. At the end of the file there are also two-page yearly columnar calendars for 2006 and 2007.

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

Two pages per month on a sheet of 8.5 x 11-inch paper. I cut them down the middle and take them to Staples for spiral binding, or you could merge the tables and staple them in the center.

Print pages 1-2, 5-6, 9-10, etc and then flip over and print 3-4, 7-8, etc.

I haven't put in any holidays in order to have as much space as possible in the daily blocks--of course you could edit this and put in your own.

Simple project list

David Allen recommends (GTD, page 155) maintaining a list of your active projects, and this does just that. No frills, just a list.

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

This project list has space at the top to write the context (projects @work vs. @home). Then on the list itself, there's a small space for a code so I can tie an item on my Next Actions list (from the basic D*I*Y Planner template) to this list. That way, when I do my weekly review, I can tell at a glance that everything on my project list has a Next Action. Then, I write the project description and the date. This can be the date you added it to the list, project start date, due date, or your birthday. Whatever fits your needs. Then there's a small space for notes at the bottom.

In the zip file, you'll find a PDF and an ODG file. Go wild.

Left-Handed Weekly Calendar

A "Weekly Planning" template made for us lefties who use classic ring-bound planners.

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

My boyfriend bought me a beautiful Franklin Covey leather-bound planner for my birthday. I was thrilled; finally I had something beautiful to put my D*I*Y Planner pages in. Problem is, I'm left-handed, so writing on the right-side pages is a real pain.

This template is made so that the work days of the week (Monday-Friday) are on the left. It's currently not in the D*I*Y Planner style, because I'm redesigning more than just my calendar anyway. If there are enough lefties who want this in a D*I*Y Planner style, though, I'd be happy to make one.

I also included a checklist for the Weekly Review, and some reminders for every day. There are even four different snippets I took from GTD to remind/inspire me throughout the month. The snippets are different for each week.

It's in a 2-up format for the Classic-size planners, and if you print them double-sided, the holes to be punched will always be in the center of the 2-up page (so if you want to fold them in half and then punch them, instead of cutting, you can).

2007 Monthly Calendar - 2 pages per month

I used the D*I*Y Template to create the 2007 monthly calendars. These calendars are 2 pages per month. I've included both the PDFs and OpenOffice source files. I also included US Holidays, but those can easily be deleted from the source files.

Usage advice: 

My wife uses these as her main calendar. There is a left-side and a rigt-side for each month. The two sheets together give you a month-at-a-glance view.

Daily Schedule & Record (Classic)

Dated Daily pages (November 2006) containing a schedule (16 hours), action list, voicemail log, food log, record/notes, and personal notes/journal areas. Includes 1-up and 2-up layouts - source ODG files only, no PDF.

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

On the left-hand page:

To-dos for the day go in the 'action list'. There's a priority column for determining order/importance, and an EST column for entering how much time you think it will take to perform the task. There's an unlabeled column for recording what you did with it (schedule forward, delegate, done, in progress, etc.).

The schedule isn't labeled with AM/PM, so it would probably work OK for someone on the graveyard shift as well as a day-shifter. It's got 15-minute intervals marked to make it easier to enter meetings, etc.

I enter my voicemail messages received that day in the "Voicemail Log" section. It's freeform so I can record the message on as many lines as required to fit it in. I don't get many voicemails each day, so it's a small section.

The Food Log is for the person trying to control weight--to lose, gain, or otherwise. It's got prompts for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and three snacks, and a small spot to record your weight that day.

On the right-hand page:

A record/notes section with each line individually numbered for easy indexing (a la Covey). There's a column for the item itself as well as a column for owner or due date.

Beneath is a section for Personal Notes/Journal. For myself, I intend to record such wonders as my kids latest developments, how I felt that day, conversations with family & friends, ideas for personal projects/growth, etc.

To use it for any other month than November 2006, open the source and change out the dates in the left-hand page titles.

For the 1-up file: Then print all the dated left pages. Flip your stock in the printer, then print enough copies of the undated right-hand page to cover the backs of all the dated pages.

For the 2-up file: Print half the pages on 8.5x11, then flip and reload in the printer. Print the other half of the pages. Then slice apart and punch. They might even come out in the right order. :) For months with odd days, there's a page at the end of the file that has a double notes/record page so you don't end up with some crazy date on the back of the last page of your month.

Note: to be like Covey, you'd put a 'master task list' on the back of the 1st day of the month, and the back of the last 'record' page would be something else. Those kinds of pages can be found in the Core template, I think.

Weekly Rainbow w/Check List

Week on left, checklist on right.

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

Print Rainbow Weekly on one side, Check list on the backside. Since I'm right-handed I punch the pages so that the Check list is on the right (where I do most of my writing).

I even made a partial page check list that can be trimmed and inserted when I run out of room on the checklist page. I will up load that separately.

Holiday Planning Set

A set of forms to assist with Holiday planning, including Meal planner, Master Gift List, Holiday Planning Calendar, Weekly task forms, and forms to hold information about Recipients.

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

The Holiday Planning Calendar is designed to be an overview of which list to use each week leading up to the holiday season. Each year, write in the dates for that year, starting with the last week, the week of New Year's Day. Map the holidays you observe on the calendar. The first week on the chart will generally be the last partial week of October, and the last week will be the first partial week of January.

The six action pages correspond to the large gray words printed on the Calendar. So, the first week, you'll use the "Organize" list, the second week you'll use the "Plan" list, etc. These lists are the to-dos for each of six weeks you do the heavy prep for the holidays. There's room to add extra items if you have different/extra holiday tasks, such as charitable work, religious observances, etc.

The menu planner is a simple sheet for planning the menu of a holiday meal. You can use one or more lines for each dish to make sure you have all the right ingredients on hand. You can also remind yourself whether the dish can be made ahead, and which day you plan to make it. You can post the menu on the fridge on the big day so your helpers can understand the plan, too.

The Master Gift List is one-line-per-person. Include all of the people you plan to buy gifts for, or whose list you're on. There's a spot for writing down what they want, what you want from them (and whether you've given them that idea or not), what you'll actually give them, and whether you've got the item on hand, wrapped, or mailed. If you have a lot of folks to buy for, you can use separate forms for each branch of the family.

The "About Gift Recipients" forms (left- and right-hand pages) record basic information about these individuals' interests, sizes, pets, and any notes you want to record. You'd put on this list long-term info to remember, since the Gift List form has the spot for this year's particular ideas. So, for example, if sister Jane likes to belly dance, you'd record that here--but if she longs for finger cymbals, you'd record that on the Master Gift List.

I made most of the pages fat margin on the left just because it's easy. The source is included if you'd rather have some more right-handed holes. The PDF is in there too.

Daily Task List

This is a tool that can help you keep track of all your daily objectives.

Thumbnail: 
Usage advice: 

This is a daily task list that I created when I couldn't find what I needed in the office supply stores. I looked at many different kinds of DAILY pages and TO DO lists, but couldn't find one that functioned the way I needed it too...so I made my own.

Monthly Index & Metrics

This contains a left-hand-punch monthly index page and a right-hand-punch monthly metrics page, meant to be used with 2-page-per-month calendars and daily pages.

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

I currently use a printed planner. It has 2-page-per-month calendars that preceed the daily pages. Page 1 of the monthly calendar is a monthly index. Page 2 and 3 are the 2 calendar pages. Page 4 is currently a financial tracking page, which I don't use.

The pages in these files are a Monthly Index page, which I will use in the same fashion as in the purchased pages, and a Monthly Metrics page which I will use in place of the financial tracking page.

I have downloaded the 2007 2-page-per-month Monthly calendar that someone else posted. I will be inserting into that my 2 pages. The Monthly Index page will be inserted before each Month's pages; the Monthly Metric will be inserted after each Month's pages. Each page in the template says "Monthly 2007" instead of the actual month name, of course, and I will have to edit that when I use them.

I figure this way I will have my monthly set of pages complete and in the order they need to be printed.

Basically, the front of the 1st sheet of paper will be the Monthly Index, holes on the left side. The back of the 1st sheet of paper will be page one of the monthly calendar, holes on the right side. The front of the 2nd sheet of paper will be the 2nd page of the calendar, holes on the left side. The back of the 2nd sheet of paper will be the Monthly Metrics, holes on the right side.

The Monthly Metrics page is currently relatively bare. It has a title (Monthly 2007 Metrics), and 32 lines - a planned title line and numbered lines for 31 days. I plan to produce calendars for myself and several family members. We'll each want to use different metrics for the month. My next step will be coming up with modular templates that can be pasted onto the Monthly Metrics page. The Monthly Metrics page will provide the rows, while the pasted in Metric module will provide the columns and column headings. Metric modules I'm thinking of are Weight, Glucose readings, habit tracking. Note that I don't know if I'll ever get around to these or even post them. ;)

These pages are built completely from the DIY Planner kit. OpenOffice source and pdf files are included.

A Larger Priority Matrix with a list of Check Boxes

The original Priority Matrix inspired this template. It is a larger version that is spread across 2 pages meant to be printed on one 8.5x11 page paper.

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

I make a list of things to do, then I priority this list. I used the original priority matrix to prioritize my lists, but it was too small. I use the list and matrix on a weekly basis, so adding things to the list as the week progressed was more difficult with the smaller space, ie this creation.

Included is the open office draw file and pdf. I print these on one page as inspired by flexiblefine, http://www.diyplanner.com/node/986. I also added a check list to the 'outside' of the folded sheet so my notes would have some order rather than lines on blank space.

Thumbnail: 
Usage advice: 

This template will give you one week spread over two pages. It prints on standard 8.5" x 11" paper. When printing from Acrobat make sure your page scaling is set to "None". Cut each page in half (at 5.5").

Word Planner thru 12/31/09 6 Months/page

Six-month per page planning calendar, through 12/31/09.

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

Print out onto a letter-size page, landscape orientation. Punch holes along the left (8.5 in) margin. Fold the page towards the rings or spiral binding, then when you need to check the calendar, fold it out--it will extend out past the pages of your planner for reference.

I'm making notes of future appointments and goals on the pages or just using it to look up dates.

Hope this is helpful to someone.

Textbook Hire Record

A basic table which is great for recording the textbooks that you have hired for school/college/uni whatever. Available in Letter, Classic, A4 and A5.

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

Use this to record the textbooks that you get out for school. It has date, title, staff (to sign that it is returned) and barcode (so you know which one is yours), with another column (in the second version that appears here) for which subject the book is for.

I recommend filling it out, so if you lose your textbooks, you know what the barcode is and if you have returned it and things like that.
To print:
- Letter and A4 planner users just print as usual.
- Classic and A5 planner users go File -> Print Setup and change the paper size to what you use. It should work.
