May through Dec 2011 Daily Calendar Pages - Letter Size

Daily calendar pages for May through December 2011 with columns for "Priority To Do" and "Want to Do," as well as an "Appointments" column with times (my day starts at 4:45am so the first time row is 4am). There is a small area to write in Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, and a "Notes for Today" area to put things like "Hubby out of town" or "Jane's Birthday."

I just put a link to my site because I was hitting the disk quota when I tried to upload the files.

Usage advice: 

I'm sorry for the wonky margins. OpenOffice Draw (and the consequent pdf that I make from it) is pushing the entire page to the right by one-quarter inch, and I cannot figure out why. So I'm just manually adjusting for it.

Bill Tracker

I have a hard time keeping track of which bills I've paid and which bills are outstanding. My AHS (Any horizontal surface) method of organization can be a bit chaotic at times, and while I've never had anything shut off (That one time with the internet doesn't count, right? It was their fault after all.) there have been times when it's been a bit dicey.
So, in order to combat this tendency, I made this template to help me keep track of who/what/when/where/and how much.
It's only got a left-hand space for holes because I don't generally use the back sides of pages. I know, bad precycler. I think it would be good to stick this on a pocket page too, to hold the bills!
I'm still figuring out the widget so I'll probably upload a classic size in addition to letter, and provide a second page with the hole space on the right later.

Paper size: 
Letter
Usage advice: 

Gather together your bills and make a page for each. You can put the average amount you pay each month in the notes if you like. That can make it easier to budget.
Fill in the name/address/phone number/account number fields right away.
When your bill arrives each month fill in the amount due and the date due right away.
When Pay All The Bills day arrives, fill out the amount paid and the date paid fields.
Payment method allows you to state if you paid by check, internet, or phone. Confirmation number is for the confirmation number you get when you pay by phone or 'net, or the check number you used.
The notes section is helpful for when you have to call customer service and you need a space for all those ticket numbers, (In a billing spat with AT&T I discovered how helpful keeping track of that sort of thing is.) or to note any extra fees associated with the bill. Late fees, debit card fees, pay by phone fees, etc.

I use this as a system to balance my life as a full-time student and full-time employee, but it can be used for either situation very easily.

Basic Book Review Schedule

This is a basic book review template, that I created, to keep track of books that are being reviewed, for whom they are being reviewed for, and when they are due, to help keep track of what is needed for each month.

Right now this is a very basic, to the point. It's 8.5 x 5.5 and meant to be something small and easy to use. It can be printed out for all the months, or enough to bind together to have a running record of books reviewed/when.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Thumbnail: 
Basic Book Review.gif
Usage advice: 

This can be printed double-sided to save paper, or printed individually to place in its respective month for a quick overview of that month.

This is to help keep track of books that are being reviewed and if, one finds that they have a lot of books to review for the same month, I would recommend, just simply print both sides. It's meant to just be enough of a quick glance over.

Classic Weekly Calendar

This spreadsheet contains several tabs, the important one being the weekly calendar. It is a two page per week calendar, with room for appointments, daily and weekly tasks, and a small space for notes. I left my tasks in to give an idea of usage.

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

There is a box on the spreadsheet for the user to type in the date of the first Monday they want a calendar for. The spreadsheet will automatically generate the last half of the previous week as well as several future weeks. After that, it's just a matter of cutting the pages and punching them. It's pretty straight-forward, I've been using it for several months now and have only punched the wrong side of the pages once ;-) Let me know if you have any questions. Enjoy.

Chaos Oasis revised

This is a revision to Chaos Oasis with corrected formulas and a slight modification to make the weekly pages more useful to my life in the past year. This version is once again a letter sized, integrated, adaptable Life Managment Center. Rather than hit every hour of each day, Oasis gives you space to plan the things that are important to you. Life is a hectic mix of home, work, family, social obligations, and creative endevors--get Oasis and come in out of the storm.

The next version of Oasis will be classic sized for portability as I am returning to the workforce.

Paper size: 
Letter
Thumbnail: 
Capture.JPG
Usage advice: 

As per the original:
Leave conformity behind; decide what you need to track and plan. Suddenly time conforms to your schedule-- that is Oasis.

*Oasis is a perpetual calendar. Enter the starting year, day, and weekly planner start day on the main page. You can start the yearly, monthly, and weekly pages on any day of the week you choose. Traditional Sunday? Go-getter Monday? Wacky Wednesday? Oasis will automatically format the calendars for dates and day titles.

*I punch holes on both the left and right sides of the Monthly and Weekly Pages after printing them front to back. Each week or Month, I insert the Monthly page on the left side of the binder and the weekly page on the right. When the week changes, I just move/flip the pages so that the month is still on the left and the week is still on the right. No more transferring, no more writing on an uncomfortable side of the page. Left handed? Reverse and put the month on the right.

* I find it easiest to keep major appointments on the monthly page.

*The good behavior chart is gridded for small round stickers (get a book with 1000's at any dollar store.) Adapt the behavior for your child's problem areas. And remember to accentuate the positive! No Don'ts allowed. :)

*I've included a basic lesson planner for home school use. This is very adaptable to homework assignments, ongoing projects, daily chores, medication usage, or other tracking/planning issues.

*Household tab gives a quick integrated list of what needs to happen in each room of your house. Update it for your personal use. It also has a quick tracking reference for recurring schedules and phone numbers.

*Also included is a tab of lined note pages and a tab to track birthdays, address, and phone numbers.

This work is entirely my own. It is my baby and was very labor intensive; please do not sell it in any capacity. You may alter it for your personal use and you may freely redistribute it as long as you give credit.

Weight Watchers Points Plus 2012 Daily Tracker

I just joined Weight Watchers Online. I don't have a smart phone so I need a tracker when I'm away from home so that I can enter the info when I get back to a computer. Their daily tracker 3 month notebook is too small for my clumsy fingers, bad eyesight, and large writing, so here is my first attempt at making my own. This is the first of what I hope will eventually be the 4 basic pages of the tracker notebook: the daily tracker, daily tracker pg 2 with water, fruit, etc checkoffs, and the 2 page weekly tracker (which might actually fit on one page). I'll edit those in to this post later, and I might edit this document a little bit too as I use it and discover its faults.

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

This is a Microsoft Word document, hopefully readable in the 97 - 03 versions. I never really got the hang of Open Office, so I just stick with what I know. Please give me feedback or suggest changes if you have any. Thanks.

Just use it however works best for you to track your points. You can even write in the nutrition info and calculate the points later.

To make a "multi-page" project:
1. Print a double-sided Project Planning page.
2. Print as many double-sided Project Planning Notes Pages as necessary.

There! You're done!

A daily scheduler

I adapted this from Balanced Life for Circa by Julie Morgenstein as I wanted it customised to suit my own needs. I print it on an A4/ Letter size paper in '2 pages per sheet' mode and then slice through it and put it in my Circa planner.

Paper size: 
A4
Usage advice: 

Please feel free to create your own customisation using this.. The 'Slider for Daily Routine' and 'Slider for 3 Weekly Outcomes' may seem a little confusing. Actually that is where I slide in my circa punched halves of 3x5 notecard where I have written my key elements of a'daily routine' on one half and on the other half, the '3 major weekly goals/outcomes' which i am aiming for that week. They help me stay focussed through the day.

DAILY SCHEDULING

Customisable daily scheduler for multiple roles/ aspects of life.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Thumbnail: 
untitled 1.JPG
Usage advice: 

I have found after much experimentation that this is the daily scheduling format that I have managed to use for an extended period without finding it too cumbersome or too boring or too flighty.
I print the sheets in 2 page per sheet format and slice through the middle to get Junior size sheets for my junior size Circa planner.
I also have very small Circa punched cards which fit into the Slider sections, which are for keeping the weekly goals in view. Sometimes I may even dispense with the small cards and just daily write down the weekly goals that I would have arrived at through my weekly review.
The Inbox section is for recording whatever work arrives during the day and just making a note against each item as to how it has been dealt with or will be dealt with (delay/ delegate, etc)
Am putting this up in Word format so that everyone is free to customise the template for their own use and change the categories as they may deem fit.

My 7 Habits Weekly Planner continues to be one of the most popular posts on my blog, despite have been posted over a year ago.

As a follow up, I wanted to do something relating to Covey’s time management matrix as found in First Thing’s First.

In my research I stumbled across an excellent mindmap of the subject by Chance Brown. Conceptually, it’s spot on, but I wanted a cleaner version for myself.

So, here is my version of the Managing Time Effectively Mindmap in MindNode and PDF Format.
