The Decimal Workbook
A guide to setting up a single-project system and working the Decimal way.
In this step-by-step workbook, I’ll take you through the entire process of how I set up my Johnny.Decimal project systems.
This guidance has been distilled from more than a decade’s experience using Johnny.Decimal across my entire life: at home, and in my life as an IT contractor.
By the end of this comprehensive guide you will have built your very own system.
It’s as close to being inside my brain as you can get.
Q: Why isn’t this free?
Because neither is my rent. :-)
I quit my job to focus on Johnny.Decimal. If I hadn’t done that, this document wouldn’t exist. My partner and I spent hundreds of hours putting this together.
Q: What’s the pricing policy?
I hate the lies that are told in order to persuade you to buy a thing.
“$400 value!”, they say. “Yours today for only $5.99!”
It’s all bullshit, and we all know it. I don’t want to play that game, and I trust that my audience is smart enough not to fall for it.
So you’ll find no ‘coupon codes’ here, no made-up ‘value’ propositions: just a product that I believe is worth $37 that I’m selling for $37.
Why $37? Honestly that’s just a number that feels right. If you follow this guide, I’m confident that it’ll save you $37 of your time. And if you’re not happy, just let me know why and you can have your money back.
Johnny.Decimal is just me and my partner Lucy. We’re not some big corporate machine. We want you to be happy.
Q: Is it finished?
The ‘First Edition’ takes you through the entire process of setting up a Johnny.Decimal system. We’re releasing it in stages as they are completed.
The sections we are currently writing will describe how to set up your index, explain how to work the Decimal way, and will include examples and templates.
As of 27 September 2023 the index and how to work the Decimal way are in the final stages of layout. Expect them within a week.
We will be recording videos that recap the end of each Workbook area and demonstrate what you should have achieved.
When complete, this package will be 100+ pages/20,000 words in the PDF, and about an hour’s worth of accompanying video.
Q: Do I get those updates?
You get all updates forever.
Q: Is there any more information? More screenshots?
Yes, the Gumroad product page has more including the full document contents (as of the First Edition).
Q: If I get stuck, will you help me?
It is my purpose in life to help you be more organised. Welcome to the Johnny.Decimal family.
