A Quick Glimpse from My First Posted Chronodex

A comparison of my first posted Chronodex from August of 2013 to a select few from last month:

Isn't it amazing how a day can take forever to pass, yet a month breezes by and a year can be gone as soon as it started? 
Since starting this new Squarespace I have been forced to search through the archives of my past writings. Every now and then I have come across a post that I personally have found interesting. One such peaked interest hit when I came across the first Chronodex I posted.  I simply couldn't believe that so much time had passed since then, nor the fact that I am still a VERY active user of this excellent tool.

In 2013,  I had written about the need to initiate Patrick Ng's Chronodex in order to maximize the free time I had available on a specific work day. My hope was that by visually presenting these "free blocks of time" I would be able to set reasonable goals in what I can accomplish. An additional goal was to use the time it takes to make the Chronodex to really think about the exact tasks I was going to conquer.

As of today, my 2013 hopes for this time management device have worked out excessively well. So much so that it has become an essential component of my day. I always look forward to those moments of reflections whilst creating the Chronodex.

Below is my first posted Chronodex from August 2013. Through the years I have come up with different visual styles and themes to keep the endeavor fresh and fun to make.

Some constants over time have been my fondness of knolling, presenting the tools I used to make the Chronodex and keeping the image to a fairly contained space. 

The one variable that has changed the most is the uses of filtering to present a more atmospheric reflection of my thoughts.
