This morning I posted about the recipe book I made for the DLW Document What You Eat challenge.
Side note: my Grandmother, who passed away in 2006, taught me to cook and made this folder for me. I knew it needed to be fixed, not only for the recipes-as-family-heirlooms reasons cited in this morning’s post, but also for my own sanity and efficiency needs.
I just bought the template and I am having a hard time typing in my recipes and saving them! Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email. The technique explained on this page is particularly useful for creating historical timelines and project timelines, as well as genealogical timelines that highlight events in a person's life. If you want to start creating your own timelines right away, you can download the Excel timeline template. Get this and other bonus project management spreadsheets free when you purchase the pro version of our Gantt Chart. Begin creating timelines in Excel within minutes by downloading the Excel Timeline Template. Historical Timelines - The primary purpose of this template is to help you create historical timelines, such as events in a person's life or perhaps the history of a company or organization. Project Timelines - The spreadsheet includes two project timeline worksheets, where events can show both duration and completion status.
You will also be able to download a separate project timeline file in which the axis is date-based as explained in the section "Using a Date-Based Axis" below. Adding Images - The Benjamin Franklin example is included in the spreadsheet, with instructions explaining how to insert images into your timeline.
The next step is to create a Scatter Chart with the Height values as the Y-axis (vertical axis) and the Axis values as the X-axis (horizontal axis). In the Select Data Source dialog box for Series1, click the Edit button, and in the "Series X values" field, choose cells $F$31:$F$40 and press OK. You can now clean up the chart by going to the Layout tab and turning OFF the legend, gridlines, and vertical axis.
We're going to create leader lines for the timeline by adding vertical error bars to the data series. In the Vertical Error Bars tab, select the Minus direction, the No Cap end style, and set the Percentage to 100% then press Close.
We want to turn off the horizontal error bars, so go to the Layout tab and select "Series 1 X Error Bars" from the drop-down list in the "Current Selection" group.
Repeat the previous step until all of the data labels have been linked to the corresponding cell in the Labels column. Sometimes you may want to set the x-axis to display a specific year range, such as 1700 to 1900 with 50-year intervals between the axis labels. You can add images and pictures to your timeline by selecting the chart and going to Insert > Picture.
To format a data point marker as an image: After selecting a single data point, right-click on the data point and go to Format Data Point > Marker Options and select the image icon from the Marker Type drop-down box.
In Excel 2013: After the Format Data Point bar opens on the right, click on the bucket icon, and then click on the word Marker.
If you are creating a project timeline, you can show the duration of an event by using X-error bars. Select the chart and go to Format > Current Selection group and select "Series 1 X Error Bars" from the drop-down list then click on Format > Format Selection. In the Error Amount area, select Custom, click on Specify Value and then for the Positive Error Value choose the cells from your Duration column. Note: To add a Completion bar like we did in the above example, you would need to add another data series so that you can define another X-error bar.
If you are want to create a timeline that uses date values after the year 1900, then you can add another "dummy" series and change the chart type for the dummy series to a Line Chart. For additional reading: Bill Jelen does an excellent job of explaining the date-based axis vs. You can widen the timeline chart object if you have a very long timeline and want to print it across multiple pages. Becky from a Sweet Hot Mess is with us today to share invaluable tips for inspiring boys (+girls) to develop a love of writing. As discussed in my previous post, How to Raise a Boy who Loves to Read, one of our greatest challenges as parents is to create an environment that fosters literacy and a love of learning.
The first thing I had to do was wrap my head around the idea that reading and especially writing are not fundamental skill sets. Strangely enough, our next choice was the opposite of the small pencils and when I found the long, chubby triangle grip of the Ticonderoga pencils (found HERE on Amazon),  we had instant success.
So now that your son is comfortable holding a pencil, has mastered the basics of handwriting and has good line control – what next? Last, but not the least, I created comic books strips for my son after I realized he adored Calvin and Hobbes. My comic strip templates are the most popular download on my blog…and because Playful Learning is such a wonderful resource for so many passionate and wonderful parents, I designed a few more templates just for you. Learning to succinctly articulate one’s thoughts and arguments is one of the greatest skills we can develop in this life. The best part of my week are those quiet afternoons when I am walking down the hall and glimpse into my son’s room and notice he is immersed in a journal, his pictures and words and imagination covering the pages.
With a background in Screenwriting and Business Management, Becky Brown also has a passion for homeschooling her son and daughter, Luke and Charlie. My son LOVES comics, and in an effort to get him to love reading as much as I do, I let him pick out (just about) any comic book or mag. As a writer and former English instructor and mother of 3 boys, I love that you are thinking and writing about this. Whether your children need extra support or an extra challenge, we will assess their needs and provide an engaging program that sparks their natural curiosity and love for learning. Our consulting services provide parents with the opportunity to receive individualized feedback and support. The Wheel of Life is a great exercise and tool for helping you create more balance and success in your life. As a starting point for creating balance, happiness and success in your life, the Wheel of Life is the perfect tool to begin your journey. Before we get started, this post has a supplementary tool which can be found in the Success Starter Toolkit. Essentially, the Wheel of Life is divided into different areas or categories that are important to you.
Remember, this is about you finding happiness and balance in your life so it will need to be clear and simple for you to understand.

One of the biggest benefits of the Wheel of Life is the pictorial representation it gives of your satisfaction with life. Now that you understand the building blocks of the Wheel, let’s go ahead and actually complete it! Print off one of the above Wheels to use as a template, or simply draw your own on a piece of paper.
Score your satisfaction levels against each of the different categories you have on your Wheel.
If you have scores of 5 to 7 for any of the categories, you are reasonably satisfied in this particular area but there is definitely opportunity to explore ideas to move this up the scale. If you have scores of 0 to 4 for any of the categories, you are not very satisfied in this particular area and you will need to explore ways of enhancing your satisfaction here. What is my ideal score for each category to achieve in the next month, 3 months, 6 months, one year?
For example, you can spend all your time and energy working on your career and make some fantastic progress.
The Wheel of Life exercise is the perfect starting point for goal-setting and this is why so many life coaches, career coaches and executive coaches use it as a tool.

About Brendan BakerBrendan Baker is Australia's leading personal development blogger and and helps people build and grow online businesses based on their passions. While I certainly understand the intent of a tool like this, which is to take a thoughtful look at your life as a starting point to make changes, it falls short of the desired impact, in my opinion.
The major aspect I see missing is an exploration into the beliefs going on behind a particular person’s answers to the questions. I would want to see a questions like, “What does your family have to do for you to feel supported?
In general, when we have lop-sided life wheels, it is often because we are compensating for feeling powerless in other arenas of our lives. I think this exercise could be even better if you built in strategic questions that helped the user imagine new behaviors that could empower them to make change.
Add in another step that asks the user to pick one area they would most like to improve, and then lead them through a separate exercise to imagine new possible solutions. Perhaps you have this step elsewhere in the many free (and generous) offerings in this website, but by not including a link to it here, this exercise falls a bit flat for me. Most of us often complain about the shortage of time and face difficulty to manage time and activities. For running a business successfully and with new trends one should manage the project issues appropriately.
Log files are tend to make your life easier to obtain information regarding problems and plan remedy in detail.
Using food log can maintain your diet as well as make you fit if you use it in proper manner. When you use log for any purpose it certainly proved to be a good step for that specific purpose.
It is actually the duty of project manager that he analyzes and knows what will be the expected risks in his project and what will be needed to resolve them.
I also wanted to post a little bit about how the recipe book, which I made using the Document Life Workshop Recipe Template Set, came together. Because of its sentimental value, I cut down the front of the folder and slipped it behind the title page of my new recipe book.
Every time I wanted to find a recipe, it took like 10 minutes of turning through all of these pages. If this was a gift, I think it would be super cool to make a Blurb book to give someone using digi recipes (that would be an awesome graduation or wedding gift!), but this is something I’m going to use. The cover will be easy to clean, the 3 rings will make it easy to add and remove recipes, the 8.5 x 11 size makes the templates less work and allows the book to easily fit on my recipe book shelf, and the bright orange color is really fun in combination with the soft colors in the template. I don’t want to use the templates for every recipe I have (that would be a crazy undertaking). I added text to them in Photoshop and printed six out per page, then I cut them down using my paper cutter and cut the non-straight parts with scissors.
We are currently affiliates of Craftsy, rukristin papercrafts., Blurb, Kiwi Crates, 30 Days of Lists, Campfire Chic, Powell's Books, and Lemon and Raspberry.
The first example shown below was created using the first version of my Excel Timeline Template back in 2005. If you are more worried about your budget than your time, you can create your own timeline chart from scratch using the instructions in the "how to" section below. We've set up the data tables and Excel charts for you, so you enter the Dates and event descriptions and adjust the heights of the lines to get things to fit the way you want. You can change the colors and formats of the chart elements however you want, limited only by what Excel allows you to do. It is possible to add more, but that is not a simple procedure and would require following some of the instructions below.
You can use these instructions to create your own timeline in Excel from scratch, if you don't feel like downloading the template. We need to add the X-axis values, so go to the Design tab and click the Select Data button (or right-click on the chart and choose Select Data). You may also want to go to the Line Color or Line Style tabs to make the leader line a dashed gray line. We are going to link the data labels, one at a time, to the corresponding cell in the Labels column. The image below shows the project timeline example that is included in the timeline template.
You may also want to format the line to change the color and increase the width of the line.
Centuries upon centuries of cultures have survived and even thrived with minimal literacy, if any at all. Becky’s passion for teaching her children runs the gamut from introducing them to the visual arts to exploring the natural world all around them.
I have a little reader here, he enjoys reading so much but his handwriting could use some work so I want to encourage him to practice, and make it fun.
They are a great way to learn firsthand how the Playful Learning philosophy applies to your specific parenting concerns. Using this tool, you will be able to reflect and gain some insight into the balance of your life and how satisfied you are in life’s different areas.

You will find that with the above you will be able to score yourself in the majority of key areas in your life. No need to get down about these scores though, as scores of 0 to 4 are full of opportunity! How efficient and effective are you going to be in life if you can not move forward in a balanced way? To do this, you want to grow your Wheel, not balance your Wheel by trading off in some areas of your life. Through reflection, you have now identified your biggest gaps between where you are now and where you would like to be. What are the specific actions or steps that you are going to take to enhance your satisfaction in your desired area?
The Wheel provides a snapshot in time of your satisfaction levels and ultimately happiness.
The tricky thing is you’ll need a whole set of different questions for each category in the Wheel of Life. To cope with this embarrassing situation and for good management of time activity log is helpful to enhance performance. They are scared to think that how they will be able to control their eating habits and loss weight. It contains details regarding distance you covered in day or night time and how much fuel you consume during the day. If you are a self employed professional then you may observed that in our society implementation of business laws and also economic laws are unable to function properly.
A lot of people used to different kind of logs with them for assistance and better results.
I love that I have her handwriting, and all the memories that go with this folder, in the new recipe book as well. I adhered them to the outside of the page protectors with Scor-Tape so I can easily get to each category!
Adobe is a free program you can download, but this version of the files is more limited and is not alterable digitally.
Though we receive a small commission on sales through these sites, all opinions are our own. But, with a little formatting and some images, you can make your timeline look much more interesting.
You can choose either the day-based axis (the labels are dates) or the year-based axis (the labels are years). Also, the more events you want to show in a timeline, the more difficult it will be to avoid having labels overlap. Doing that can simplify the process of displaying the x-axis labels and editing the date range, but the events in the data table must be ordered by date. So, instead of selecting the chart object and pressing Ctrl+p to print, select the range of cells surrounding the chart object and then print the selection ("Print Selection" is one of the options you can choose from the Print dialog in Excel).
Becky strongly believes that her passions will fuel her children’s passions, and she actively works to further her knowledge as both a parent and an educator—while learning more every day about the importance of playful learning. Below, you can download the free wheel of life template which is used by more than 3,000 people every month.
Following on from this self-reflection, you can utilise this exercise to further delve into why your wheel of life looks the way it does, what you would like your wheel of life to look like, and further into how to make this happen. There is a scoring system behind using the Wheel, where you simply reflect and rate your satisfaction levels out of 10, where 1 is closest to the centre of the circle and 10 is at the edge of the circle.
However, before you rush into it and complete the Wheel, you may like to have thought whether there are any other categories or specific areas you would like get an understanding of, such as Spirituality or Contribution to Society. It’s important you maintain what you are doing to ensure you remain satisfied in this area, however don’t overlook that there may be areas for improvement.
I find this as quite exciting when someone has a lower score as often is the case the individual has not fully explored opportunities that are available to them. It’s about moving forward, challenging yourself and pushing your boundaries to expand your Wheel and make it bigger while maintaining a balance. It is quite important to keep a good record of all documents as it facilitates a lot in tracking subsequent actions to be taken as response of documentation. It may provide you detail insight about your spending on gas and you can control your budget through vehicle log. I might add in a few more later (like Rice and Beans, Vegetarian Mains, and Other Meat), but this will do for now. I opted for a hybrid approach and used the templates to add in the text, printed off the text on cardstock, then added 4 x 6 photos of the recipes. In the .pdf version, all of the content is printable (6 category cover sheets, printable tabs with categories, the outline of the recipe sheets for use with handwritten instructions).
This page descibes a method that I developed to create timelines quickly in Excel using an XY scatter chart with events as the data labels. You can insert images into Excel charts as well as format a data point marker so that it displays an image. Also, people have reported that this technique doesn't always work in all versions of Excel. With a BFA in Film Direction and her MA in Screenwriting from UCLA, Becky’s passion for writing and storytelling runs throughout her work and her life, as seen in her eclectic family blog, Sweet Hot Mess, about her life in Tulare, California. The above diagram is colour-coded to simplify it and also make it aesthetically pleasing… feel free to change this as you wish!
Perhaps you may want to have Family & Friends as two separate categories to understand each more specifically. This is important to ensure you are not limiting your potential for even further growth and satisfaction in this area. I recommend at least once every 6 months, depending on what your goals are and when you have aimed to achieve them.
I decided on my categories and started moving the recipes around into piles for each category.
Continue reading below to learn how to create the timeline from scratch, or save time by downloading the timeline template.
The pages with multiple recipes from different categories went into a pile to be the first to be typed up.
