D*I*Y Planner 3.0
March 01, 2006
Here's something that looks very helpful if you've been looking to get organized.
I sure can use it, only I've got to dig out my desk first before I can get really organized. One of these days I'm going to post a shot of my big huge IKEA desk (I think it's more than five feet long), right after a frenzied work period when you can hardly see any of the wood.
The D*I*Y Planner 3.0:
a set of free do-it-yourself templates, covers, documentation and other gear for creating your own highly customised paper planner system. A year in the making, this new version includes nearly 200 pages of forms covering life management, calendars, project planning, note-taking, health, finance, and even creative uses like writing, storyboards, and web design. With some basic supplies, the handbook, and a little elbow grease, you can create an ideal low-cost productivity system that meets almost every need.
I love that it's inspired by David Allen's Getting Things Done (which I actually, at one point in my life last year, was implementing quite smoothly. Don't ask what happened, because I really don't know. Things just kind of got out of control again.)
What's even nicer is that it's really flexible, and includes: "A creativity package for writers, artists, web designers and other creative types. Other packages cover note-taking and health & fitness."
The classic format fits the original Daytimer binder size. You can cut your paper to size, and pick up a three-hole punch for 5.5" X 8.5" paper in the Daytimer section of Staples. Check the comments for other options, including a method of printing out full page letter size.
It's free, but if you find it useful, there's a handy donation button to say your thanks.
