Today is a proud release of my Chronodex scheduler with GTD to-do list function! I had about 10 minutes of quiet time in the morning but then crazy whatsapp messages came in with lots of unfinished tasks, which reminded me of the importance of sitting down undisturbed to plan a good day.
It was first developed in November 2013 for my personal use and I've been filling it up with tasks in many of the busier days. I've modified it into a 3rd version and now ready to share with you busy bees. I usually use my Traveler's Notebook with two refills: A dated Chronodex Weekly Planner and a blank notebook for tasks, notes, drawings etc. However in busier days when tasks overflow or when I travel for business, a daily version is necessary. I've made it suitable to print on A4 paper, so that when you fold it two times evenly (a z-fold), you get a Traveler's Notebook sized task killer, simply slide it into the notebook and pull out quickly when in need.
There is not enough time for me to explain in details how to use it here, perhaps I can cover it later. But simply, one fold is a Chronodex daily scheduler with "TODAY'S FOCUS" and "GRATITUDE NOTE" sections to help you run your day with clear objectives and highlight the more beautiful things you find from your day. It also has small icons for you to track how many cups of water you have drank and weather icons to log your day.
The 2nd fold is the major GTD "Next Action" tab, where you want to lay your tasks in priority and kill them one by one. The 3rd fold is the usual GTD "Projects", "Waiting For" and "Someday/Maybe" tabs.
If you print it double sided, you can save a lot of papers because one paper can be used for 2 days. If you would like to use it without Traveler's Notebook, simply hold your pile of A4 papers with a binder's clip, it is a great way to have a dashboard like this on your desk lying flat.
It works great for me to plan my business trip days at terminals and coffee shops, I just needed to pull out the z-folded planner and start to write freely.
I've seen a lot of creativity from people using Chronodex without me explaining how to use it, perhaps someday I will, but for this daily version, I think it works very much similarly just with a GTD touch and self-explanatory. So, for now, that's all. Please download and share for free, but again it is entirely for personal use and please don't sell it. I will work hard to find time making Chronodex products into reality someday.
