Art and Chaos - Found Art

My son finds a way to manage time. The quote in the upper right, from "Unknown", says, "Nothing makes a person more productive than the last minute."


  1. ROTFL!

    A little stuck in his own perspective... ...beautifully so!

  2. Wow! That's what my DayRunner looks like, too! Brilliant kid!

    That is so cool. I wish I had that kind of time management skills.

    This is awesome. Thank you for sharing it with us. Like Tengrain, I wish I had that kind of time management skills. That, or a time turner.

    Clever kid, no doubt - but please BG take the DayRunner away before he becomes another time management junkie!

    There's plenty of play time before he has to tote a Franklin Planner (owned by the Mormon Church I should point out) around like a ball shackled to his leg.

    Aside from work, calendars are the biggest scourge of mankind!

    Sorry, I got a little carried away there. I'm late for therapy .... Maybe if I used a planner I'd remember this stuff.

    Smart kid. Good use of tools is very important.

    From the classic movie "Tremors" (never watch a movie that's better than 2 stars): "we plan ahead, so we don't have to do anything today".

  7. Now that's a little man with a plan!

    And kudos to willis for quoting Tremors.

  8. Seriously, in studying how people learn things in my schoolings, you're son has exemplified the concept map model. It's in the deciphering, not in the memorizing, that we learn. I love your appreciation of the artistry he has displayed. I agree it's brilliant.

    It would be interesting what other things he would/ will do with a planner that we adults can learn from.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    Your son is obviously a born Zen Master. "Be here now. Been there yesterday. Go there tomorrow."

    What a beautiful sense of perspective... one many of us strive for and never achieve.

    It's a little gift of himself at that moment in time he left you. I love finding things like this where I don't expect them.

  11. This is amazing art ad I love that you call it art, someone else may say, look he messed up my planner. It also makes a lot of sense from what I know of your son, that this would be his view.

    Thank you for sharing.

  12. I could sure use a good assistant if you guys every decide to move to DC! I'm terrible with time management.


    ps: love the comments here ... such a smart crowd!

  13. Haha.....brilliant! Love it.
