Hi Patrick, great blog and a fantastic idea.
Love the exploding pie-chart time slice concept.
Best wishes and thoughts for you , your Dad and your family.
JSButterfly & Coronado, the dot grid is a good alternative idea too.


Thanks Bogon07!

Thanks for your work and the posting for others to use. A prayer for everyone is
needed as the world economy is in turmoil. And a special prayer for your family.

Thanks spotted-and-speckled and Merrib!

Thank you very much TC, your parents are in my prayers.

I'm really enjoying it and loving all the little extras. Including the way the Chronodex formats a goals page, like a ticket to a destination! Well done.
I also customized the size so it will fit in my Arc notebook (which will also fit the Circa that many have from Levenger). Here are some pics.


I did a similar mod, but because I wanted it to be a portrait page I recreated the entire thing in Illustrator and then did it with a dot grid instead of a line grid.
This is what it looks like before printing:
Don't worry, I didn't break the secured .pdf, I made it all on my own and wont be putting the file anywhere to dilute your work, it was just a FANTASTIC idea :)


Hey Coronado that's great! You've kept the Chronodex spirit and modified to your own needs and that's perfectly ok for me. In fact, may I share your PDF on my blog so that more people can enjoy the format you are using? I will put credit to you for such modification if you don't mind. Please email to discuss: p a t r i c k n g @ m a c . c o m (without space)

Thanks!!!


Sure thing. I'll remove my personal stuff from the pdf, encrypt it, and send it on it's way later today. Glad to help out in spreading the news :)

One question for you:

I actually use paper that I have precut to 5.5x8.5 for mine before printing, so that is how the pages are sized. Should I put 2 to a page so that it fits on letter before sending it to you?

EDIT: Actually, looking at how the pages would be side by side in the PDF, it would preclude proper duplex printing. I'll just send it along as-is in one page per 5.5x8.5 sheet. Just be sure to note on the site that this is made for that size, precut :)

Here's to share with you a little add-on bookmark.
Previously it was done this way:

6a00d8341e524153ef0162fc9db16e970d-800wi.jpg

I figured the rectangular nature of it would block what's underneath, so a simple modification solved the problem. Just cut away part of the rectangular flap.

Hope you like this little mod. If you have other great mods, please share.

BTW, that black pen is the new Kaweco AL Sport Touch, ball point at one end, stylus tip at the other. This is just the prototype I got, which is not very sensitive and disappointing, I hope the final one is a loooot better.

Stop reading my mind!

I have not printed or cut it from cardstock yet, but this the bookmark for the ARC notebook I made for this calendar:

Wa hahahh kakakak. I'm wondering how you adhere your bookmark to ARC notebook.
Here's another idea to think of. I'm a GTD guy so having a separate notebook to write down to-do is kind of annoying, like flipping between diary pages and notebook/index cards. What if there is a handsome way to attach a piece of paper to the "today" or "this week" bookmark, which simplifies things a lot. Perhaps a Post-it type of sticker, perhaps some kind of pre-cut card with to-do boxes pre-printed can be inserted to the bookmark easily..... I am thinking of a punch and slide to lock mechanism.

In the mean time, if you don't already know, here's my GTD index card download:

which was covered in GTD Times, Moleskinerie, Koloist, David Allen Co., Lifehacking, Geeks Guide To Productivity etc.

Coronado. please consider joining and posting your ARC customizations on my Flickr group Arcs and Circas.

If it's ok with you, I'd like to showcase your customizations on my blog too. www.paperspaces.net

Let me know if ok. Thanks.

Like this:

Making one without the smearing now, lol. The Sharpie I used to coat the white edges bled more than I would have liked.

And the idea it to leave it in the notebook and just move one of the planner pages each week.

I have never actually used Flickr, lol. So let me check it out and I'll get back to you (though I don't anticipate an issue). Also, I'll get you better pics for that.

I'm so thrilled with your page marker. Here's mine (Do i have to always make everything look so girly? Yes! :cloud9:)

I think I can cut/paste your photos into Flickr, and I hope you don't mind me adding it to my blog too.

No problem. I think I can message you better pics on here privately, or just post them in here later. I'll take some tonight or tomorrow.

So much fun going on here, and I learned a few tricks from Coronado and JS, thanks!

I originally planned a portrait version but figured I need horizontal space more than vertical.
Wouldn't the Circa discs gets in your way to write on the left page Coronado? JSButterfuly, do you have similar problem even though you are already using it in landscape mode?

BTW, Circa seems very popular here isn't it? I recall seeing the original Circa in Paperworld Frankfurt years ago and thought it was kind of ugly (no offense), I guess the flexibility is the attractive point.

The customization is definitely the selling point for the Circa line. I am not a huge fan of the discs in terms of aesthetics, but they don't look terrible to me.

I don't have any issue with them getting in the way when I write on either side of the page.

:ltcapd: Ugly? Not mine! :roflmho: Not offended at all Patrick. Beauty is in eye of beholder. I have no affiliation to either product - ARC or Circa. Just a happy consumer.

For me there are many advantages to a disc system for working, taking notes, and brainstorming. They are outlined in this thread. Why Arc?

The disc bound book folds back completely in half. So, the discs do not get in the way.

Back to the Chronodex -- Yes, Portrait would be very useful. (wish I had thought of that). Is there a way to fix the Saturday/Sunday? so they are portrait too?

Hi Patrick,

My prayers thoughts are with yours for your Dad and Mum. My grandmother had Parkinsons. I treasure that final look of recognition in her eyes the last time I saw her, before she passed away.

I love the Chronodex idea and would love to give it a go. My thinking is currently very linear and it looks like a great way to tickle my dormant creative side. I was wondering if you could create an A5 format (when you find the time, and if you wish to). I do like the portrait version shown above. I would use it with my Atoma disc binder.

I'm going to start full-time uni next year and I think this will be a great way to keep track of time and assignments.

Thanks for a great idea!

Agree that portrait is more natural to most.
Now I understand the characteristics of the circa disc.

Thanks Steve! As an artist, do you like a traditional linear way of diary notation or this new radial method? I would like to hear your opinion.
