Maker's Weekly Planner

I have a page-a-day journal calendar I use to keep track of what I'm doing, but I find I don't plan effectively because I can't see the whole week at a time. When I read Maker's Schedule, Manager's Schedule I suddenly understood why I have so much trouble with most weekly planners: they all have hourly time slots, and I don't work like that. (Also, I'd need 6am to midnight for an hourly planner.)

I loved LynnR's whimsical style in her Page-A-Day Planner, so I created a time block weekly planner in the same style.

Paper size: 
Letter and A4
Thumbnail: 
weekly-planner.gif
Usage advice: 

Sized 8.3" by 11", so if you center it'll print well on both Letter and A4. I sliced up the lines in the notes section so it works equally well for paragraphs and to-do lists. :)

7-day columns, Monday and Sunday starts both included. Rows give slots for Early Morning, Morning, Noon, Afternoon, Evening, Dinner, & Late Evening. Rearrange as you like in MS Word, or print straight from PDF.

I've also thrown in my modded version of LynnR's daily planner, in case anyone else likes it. ^^ (I replaced chores with downtime, added an extra hour (11pm-midnight), and sized it down so it fits on Letter paper.)

Basic Work Week: 2010

I work an 8-5 job, 5 days a week. Work related appointments / tasks / reminders are handled electronically in Outlook. However, I still like to have a basic overview of the working week down on paper. I originally started using chefz' Version of the Planner Pad: http://www.diyplanner.com/node/6597

That was still too detailed for me, so I have come up with my own Planner. I am sharing it in case anyone else is interested. I have attached the Excel file as well for those who want to edit it. The PDF covers the whole of 2010.

2010 Calendars

I've borrowed from some existing templates to create two daily planners - one for intensive 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. appointment scheduling combined with those daily tasks, lists, workouts, intake monitors, etc. and another for a less appointment, more activity-based schedule. The second still has room for a few appointments as well as directions to those appointments, but includes more intensive to do and to buy lists. All of this can be tweaked to fit your needs using the Ctrl+F method of replacing a word or phrase with one more appropriate to your lifestyle. It works well in letter or A4. Each file contains the whole month of January, but a Ctrl+F can replace the month and the dates and days can be changed quickly manually. The No Weekly planner is my favorite and shows my progress with mirroring pages to allow more room on the page and room for the hole puncher to not cut into text.

Paper size: 
Letter
Usage advice: 

I use the one with hourly scheduling for days when I'm buried in appointments and want to make sure I still get to the dry cleaner's and pick up those groceries without neglecting my workout. The other is great for ordinary usage, making it to the gym and a doctor's appointment on an errand-filled day, etc.

2010 Weekly Team Task Planner - 6 Slot

A way to track weekly tasks for people who manage a team.

Paper size: 
Letter
Thumbnail: 
Weekly Team Task Planner - 6 Up.png
Usage advice: 

Don't remember where I got the template for this. Was either on this site, or David Seah's Personal CEO (http://www.davidseah.com).

Modified it to my liking, then I lost the hard drive I put them on. Recently found the printed copies, and did them from scratch in OpenOffice Draw. Once I got started, it was easy.

The first one is for 2010. You can circle the month, and write in the topic in the blank by the year. I manage a team and needed to track follow-ups for who I manage. You can put the person you're assigning the task to in the "[WHO]" spot, and when they were assigned the task/item, and what they're waiting for.

I also created a "2 Slot" version where I can track my own (and my boss') items.

Hope you like it - feel free to use to your liking. (Also, please let me know if I didn't credit the people who should be).

Agenda Semanal 2010 en español - 2010 Spanish Weekly Calendar

Agenda semanal tamaño A4.
A4 Spanish Weekly Calendar.

Paper size: 
A4
Thumbnail: 
agenda a4.png
Usage advice: 

Hice esta agenda semanal tomando prestado el modelo ya publicado en este sitio. Es fácilmente traducible a otros idiomas mediante "buscar y reemplazar". Yo la imprimí en doble faz y la mandé a anillar junto con otros formularios. Un detalle: los días de la semana no tienen el número correspondiente (por ejemplo "lunes 4 de enero") Era demasiado trabajo hacerlo en la computadora, así que opté por escribir los números a mano (es más divertido). En otro post pondré los formularios que hice y las carátulas para que puedas aprovecharlos.

I made this calendar borrowing a popular model from this site. It's in Spanish but it should be easily translated by "search and replace". You can print it in double side and ring-bound it with other forms to made a good planner. Just a detail: the week days don't have the number, it was a lot of work doing it with the computer so I preferred to add it by hand (more fun). I'll post the other forms and the covers so you can use them too.

Meeting Page

This is part of a page from my new system that i use for taking notes in meetings. I use it in team and staff meetings + meetings with my boss and other individuals.

Paper size: 
A4
Thumbnail: 
meeting agenda thumbnail.jpg
Usage advice: 

Components & Usage...

Header
Room to write description of the meeting, i usally write the date as well. Can be used for team meetings or meetings with individuals. Also a box with processed - after a meeting i transfer notes and actions to my diary and planner system and then file this sheet.

Prep
This is where i empty my head of all agenda items that i want to speak about at the meeting. I have a formal meeting with my boss every monday morning, so during the rest of the week i keep one page handy and jot down anything i need to speak to him about at this meeting.

Notes
A fairly big notes section for joting down stuff that comes up at the meeting or just doodling if it's a really boring meeting!

Action Section
A place to write all the actions that have come out of the meeting.

I find this works really well for personal note taking and minute taking at meetings. Let me know if it works for you or any improvements and stay tuned for more pages in this system.

There are two identical pages in the pdf so you can print double sided.

2010 Yearly Planner

Another component of my new system is the yearly planner. For basic yearly overview planning. 3 months to an A4 page, 6 months to a 2* A4 spread. Loosely based on the yearly planning in the moleskine diaries.

Paper size:

Usage advice: 

Pretty basic. I print it out double sided so that there are two A4 spreads of 6 months each. You can also use it for 3 monthly planning by printing each page out separately.

2010 Work Week Planner

The largest part of my new system - the work week planner. Includes Weekly planning for Monday to Friday, Notes sections and small section for major events of the weekend.

Paper size: 
A4
Thumbnail: 
2010 Weekly Planner.jpg
Usage advice: 

This is the planner i use for work and as i work only monday to friday i decided to make it a monday to friday diary, so i didn't waste space on weekend days i didn't write in.

Starts on the 25th January cause i created it just this week.

Basically it's a five day work week to a two page spread. Mon-Wed on one page and Thur, Fri, Notes and weekend on a second page.

Each day is divided into general notes at the top, morning (anything that happens before 8am). Time slots from 8am till 7pm; then evening (anything that happens after 7pm)

Also included is a notes section and a weekend section - sometimes stuff happens on the weekend that i need to be aware of in my work diary so i put it here.

I print it out on A4 double sided so that you see one week at a time and bind it together with the other pages in my system. You could also punch it and keep it loose leaf in a folder. Friends of mine print one week out a time or a month at a time.

I'm working on a few other designs at the moment including a 7 day work week and a landscape one page version of this page.

Weekly Calendar with Planning Page

In my calendars I like some kind of long range RADAR, typically in form of small monthly thumbnails.
Some weeks ago I saw a design, where the current month is like a ruler at the bottom of a left page and the next month is at the bottom of the right page. Based on my sweetheart calendar I made a proof of concept. The whole week is lefthand and planning space is on the right side. The current week is shaded in the ruler for accentuation.

Usage advice: 

In the first table you set the starting date in cell A1. The rest is dead simple. The only tricky thing is setting the margins for the individual printer. Or make a direct export to pdf and do the scaling with Adobe Reader.

General Project Timeline Planner

While working on multiple projects for multiple clients, I needed a generic project timeline planning sheet. And I needed everything to be customizable to the time frame, the number of tasks, and include details about expenses pertaining to the project.

This Excel spreadsheet was the result. Hope it helps you get organized.

Paper size: 
Letter

Usage advice: 

I print this out and 3-hole punch it to put in a binder of project details then hand write the info I need. But since it's in an Excel spreadsheet, you could easily type in your information and print out the whole schmear.

Pretty Floral Week at a Glance

These are 2 slightly different spreads of a week at a glance, with a purplish floral embellishment. The days of the week go vertically down, with columns across the pages for different things.

There are boxes on each day to write in the dates. I am not sure how to make this into a form that others could type text w/ nice fonts into.

Come see more designs on my blog: cutediyplanners.blogspot.com

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Thumbnail: 
Week at Glance 1 Blank Purple.gif
Usage advice: 

The first form has the columns labeled as such: 1) To Do This Week; 2) Appointments; 3) To Each Day; 4) Lunch & Dinner Plans; 5) Health Log; and 6) Accomplishments!

The second form has no labels for the columns except for the first one on the very left: To Do This Week.

This is made to print landscape on 8-1/2 x 11 paper (be sure to print the same image on both sides of paper, making sure the 'top' is facing the same direction), and then to cut in half to 'Classic Size' before 3-hole punching or comb-binding.

This is what I am using now, and it has been very useful so far. :)

Feb 2010 Daily Calendar Pages - Letter size

Daily calendar pages for Feb 2010 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).
