This year marks the 9th year in a row that I’ve used this calendar. Why do I love it? Why have thousands of people bought one for their own home or office? Because it works.
It’s not magic, it’s just science. Study after study has shown how important tracking your year is, but my favorite came from the University of Konstanz in Germany. They showed that when you track when and where you are going to work on something, you double your chances of success.
That should have been the headline, “Want to double your chances of success? Use this calendar.”
Every year I talk about how my big wall calendar is my #1 productivity tool and until that stops being the case, I'll keep doing it. Nothing helps me finish projects and achieve goals in the short term AND the long term like this calendar does. It truly is a game-changer for me.
It's BIG. 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.
NO GAPS. 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's BEAUTIFUL. 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.
It’s MOTIVATIONAL. This massive wall calendar comes with 12 encouraging statements from me, because a good calendar isn’t just a piece of paper, it’s a motivation machine.
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 2020.
