Music Notes

Compose music on your Hipster PDA

Paper size: 
Index Card (3 x 5)
Thumbnail: 
Usage advice: 

Inspired by John Norris' Hipster PDA forms, Pete Phillips contributed this handy Hipster PDA form for jotting down musical notes.

Nine staves give you plenty of room to compose your next masterpiece, and there's even a bit of space to write down lyrics for your next catchy tune. You can also write guitar chords above the lines.

Far out tip: write down a few songs and laminate the cards. Then you can hit the right notes when you're yodeling in the bathroom! ;)

GTD templates for Filofax Personal

A bunch of Allen's GTD lists designed to fit a Filofax Personal Organiser. The size is 95mm x 171mm or 3 3/4" x 6 3/4". Designed for 2-up on both A4 and letter-size paper.

Thumbnail: 
db_filo_sample.jpg
Usage advice: 

[Links updated 2008 19 03]
I recently switched from a PDA to a Filofax Personal. I find it very useful, but the refills were too poor to fit my needs.

So I made my own implementation of Allen's GTD. It is certainly not a complete set, but you'll get a bunch of '@lists' and a few others stuffs as well that I use daily. I don't think there is a need to explain how to use them ;-)

Now, there is also a few 'Project' pages which are quite specific to my needs : I work in a publishing company (monthly computer booklets), I needed a simple way to keep track of the tens of projects I am working on (as an author or as... sorry I do not know the English word : directeur de collection). Each project/book have one or more pages in wich I log every events in the notes section plus the date in the small left column. This way I keep track of the work from the begininng to the end. It is also very useful to give my boss a clear summary of all the work in progress, what is OK and what went wrong : I just need to browse trough the pages.

The PDF is designed to print 2-up on A4 paper. You will find a Letter version of the PDF (Filofax Personal templates) here :
http://davidbosman.fr/telechargements/filofax_templates_Lett...

Note that I was not able to test the printing of the Letter PDF (don't have any paper of that size).

Templates are designed to print both sides, there is space reserved for the holes, I use an Exatime '6 hole punch' (#18243 is the only ref. on its box) that fit perfectly.

I print on a B&W laser (no inkjet testing) on 60gr Clairefontaine A4 paper, which is almost as thin as the original filofax refills :)

Comparison Shopper for HPDA

HPDA-sized card to list the features you want in an item you want to buy and to compare up to 3 different models.

Paper size: 
Index Card (3 x 5)
Thumbnail: 
Usage advice: 

This template was inspired by Merlin Mann's Phone Made of Human Ass podcast. It is a simple reference card that you can list features you want in a new device, with space to fill in several models and check off which have the features you are looking for. There is also space for notes so you can keep track of things like which store/website carries which model, etc.

This is my first-ever template using the DIY Planner Widget Kit, and I admit I screwed up saving the OODraw file, so I do not have the source file, only the finished PDF. My apologies...

Paper CD Case

A bit of folding nets you a two-cd sleeve from a letter sized sheet of paper. With areas for title and notes.

Paper size: 
Letter
Thumbnail: 
CDFolding-thumb.png
Usage advice: 

I use this all the time when people check out CDs from me for software installation. It's nice to have notes areas to document what's on the CDs as well as installation instructions and serial numbers/keys.

The folding instructions are included, taken from http://www.sci.fi/~tenu/diag/2CD.gif , which states the instructions are free for non-commercial use.

I don't quite have the lines right; this is very much a work in progress.

Simple Day Plan System 5 x 8

Simple Day Plan System - 5" x 8" index card format.

Paper size: 
Other
Usage advice: 

Ideal for people who have relatively few appointments and to-do items. Great for people who like to travel really light.

Consists of blended Appointments/ToDo area, Notes, and on the reverse, Agenda (can also be used as a free-form expanded ToDo list), Daily Tasks Completion Indicator, and Evening Items area.

Using the Daily Tasks Completion Indicator (DTCI) is simple. At the end of the day, review the number of tasks and appointments completed, and divide by the total number of tasks/appointments that you started out with, then circle the appropriate percentage. The DTCI acts as a reminder of what still needs to be done and acts as a quick visual indicator of your day's progress. You could even choose to mark your
intended goal for the day with red ink, and the actual results with ink of another
colour.

Simple Project Lists for the HPDA

Simple project lists for not-so-complex projects. For those projects that don't need in-depth details and notes.

Paper size: 
Index Card (3 x 5)
Usage advice: 

Since I tend to have a lot of projects that don't need additional details (and to keep my Moleskine slim), I created my own adaptation of a project list with one and with two lines. Usage is pretty simple. Just put your projects on the list, and that's all there's to it.

Weekly Time Map for Routines

This is a simple spreadsheet to track routines. The template is for 6am-11pm for 7 day weeks starting Monday.

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

Use this is track routines such as Communtes or Work Schedules and broad catigories of tasks such as "Errands or Household".

A sample is included with the Open Office version. Downloading the spreadsheet is stongly reccomened since the cells are too small to write in easily. The spreadsheet uses the BlueHighway fonts that are use in the Widget Kits.

Color coding of types of tasks is a good idea. To color code select the cell or cells, right click, select "format cells", choose the background tab, select your fill color.

*The only restictions on the use of this template are any that might be attached to the font.

Business Card Sources Page

Pages desigend to give you a place to literally stick business cards for places you shop. Requires Double Sided Tape.

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

This is a sources page for lazy people (like me) who aren't going to recopy data that is already in business card form.

If you print it out and apply double sided tape to the striped areas you will be all ready to add business cards to your planner's referance section. When you have a target card take off the other side of the double sided tape, stick and you are almost done.

The business cards attach sideways, but there are 2 lines either underneith or above to write a quick discription (eg Cakes, Web Guy) and a little circle to rate the service (the more colored in the better).

The Draw Tempale offer 3 other ratings squares (5 stars, single starfor numberical rating and a "happy face" without a mouth).

Weekly GTD Combo Page

Right hand margin page with Next Action, Waiting For, Projects and Someday/Maybe.

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

Based on the 0.6 Widget Kit.

There is not a whole lot of space here, esp. for projects, but that is on purpose. If I try to do more then 6 or 7 projects at a time I am going to drop things.

There are no labels for the columns on this page. I generally use the the right hand next action for a project or location code if needed. I use the left-most column under Waiting For to note progress and the right-most for a date, sometimes the other is useful for a project code or the like. I use the left-most column under projects for a project code.

Designed to be used with my 2006 weekly planner pages with dates. Formatted for a right hand margin, two per standard size letter pages and two pages with only one form per page.
