2018 is a great year when finally I spared enough time to make the first licensed Chronodex real.
Chronodex visual scheduler and task management on MD Paper, a pack of 3pcs in A5 size. It is gonna be released exclusively @logonhk Festival Walk store on 1st Sep for the MD Paper 10th Anniversary event in Hong Kong. The limited production was made possible thanks to LOG-ON and Designphil teams. It is Chronodex’s first ever licensed product, I’m tremendously thankful for those of you who support and respect original design.
On the left of the spread is the most updated Chronodex version. On top there are icons reminding you to drink enough water and recording the day's weather, they are there to help you take a little time off from a busy day. There's also "Today's Focus" so you can write down what's the most important thing of the day. The "Gratitude Note" is for you to summarize the day with reflection, appreciating even small pleasant things instead of bringing home just a tired body.
On the right, there are sections to capture your random thoughts, things you personally want to do but may not be a good time, things that are less important so perhaps later, things to be captured in various projects. Most importantly, there are 3 columns to capture important to-dos. They are "5 min.", "15 min." and ">30 min." sections, whenever you need to capture a task, instead of pouring everything into one big inbox, you take 1 second to determine if they are tasks that can be finished within a few minutes or you need to spend more time, this is very important because when things are accumulating, it is so overwhelming you start to ignore the huge list. This helps you to have a better grasp of TIME needed to complete those tasks, you choose to be easy to yourself this hour and dive deep into time consuming tasks the next, or the other way around, which gives you a sense of control.
Anyway, this is just one of the many possible ways to manage your day, it gives me pleasure to do scheduling and task management like it's a game. I hope many of you will benefit from it.
This limited Chronodex edition is part of the celebration of MD Paper 10th Anniversary in LOG-ON Festival Walk store. The event will also feature selling MD Paper blocks by weight, special event only stamps and pencils, exhibits from 4 professional users, workshops from talented @kalomakeartand @Pooi_chin. Any purchase of MD Paper product over HK$300 will also get you this event only tote bag!
Why the first licensed Chronodex is released on MD Paper? Coz I admire how Designphil/Midori meticulously manage their product quality and never succumb to cheap ideas to exploit great brands. This is true with Traveler's Notebook and MD Paper Product brands I know deeply of. Besides, the people behind these brands are my heroes, I'm so glad to be part of their initiatives.
So, it is a small thing but it means a lot to everybody involved.
