For the last five years, I've used this calendar to plot adventures, keep commitments, finish projects and accomplish things I care about. Why do I use it?
Simple, if you plan when and where you'll work on your goals, you DOUBLE the chances you’ll actually accomplish them. That's not an empty motivational statement, that's what study after study has proven.
For instance, scientists studied two groups of students at the University of Konstanz in Germany. The group who wrote down when and where they would work on their goals had a 71% success rate. The group who didn’t had a 32% success rate. (Research via the book “Succeed” by Heidi Grant Halvorson Ph.D.)
If you're ready to get serious about chasing a dream and launching a Do Over in an area of your life, you will love this calendar.
In addition to the great features described below, it includes 12 challenges/encouragements from my New York Times Bestselling book, Do Over
. Each one is designed to help slingshot you into a great month of dreaming and more importantly, doing.
This year we're also offering a dry erase version after so many people told us their plans required some flexibility. Try the new dry erase option out for your home and office or stick with the traditional paper version if that's your style.
2017 is going to be an amazing year! Give yourself the best shot at being awesome with a fun calendar to help along the way!

Why is this the best calendar ever?
25" x 36" - It shows you the whole year at once. You no longer have to page through a traditional calendar (or on your small computer screen), to see the whole year. You can layout your goals for the year, set future deadlines, and clearly see the passing of time. Also, it has bigger squares so you can write more.
Unlike other calendars, this one has no space between months. The philosophy here is that the week is the currency we think in, so this calendar focuses on presenting 52 weeks, rather than 12 months. This feature helps you plan across months easily, and see clearly the distance/days between any two dates in the year. It will also motivate you to see weeks passing, deadlines approaching and goals accomplished.
It combines functional features with brilliant aesthetics. In Making Ideas Happen, author Scott Belsky says "the design of your productivity tools will affect how eager you are to use them. Attraction often breeds commitment." You'll be eager to use this attractive calendar.
As the saying goes "if you fail to plan, you plan to fail." This calendar is a great tool to help you plan your dreams in 2017.
