Designed to help you overcome the procrastination that typically comes with setting yearly goals, this calendar breaks the year into four quarters, with background shading that gives you a quick and visual indication of when one quarter ends and another one begins. This allows you to set your goals for each quarter and track them visually, and also gives you built-in reset periods if things don't go exactly according to plan. Buffer weeks are even built-in, giving you space to think through what worked and what didn't, celebrate your successes, and make the small adjustments necessary to get back on track.
The key on the bottom of the calendar is flexible, allowing you to make your own color-coded system but is also perfect for identifying the habits that will be required to achieve your goals. Once you set your goals for the quarter and put the important dates and milestones on your calendar, you can document your progress by tracking the daily habits you'll need to achieve them. Each day gives you space to track up to 4 habits, and also shows you how many days are left in the quarter to help you stay on track.
Life is more than cranking widgets. Armed with this calendar, you'll be better equipped to apply intentionality and focus on the things that really matter.

What makes this calendar so helpful?
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 achieve your goals in 2023.
