Earlier this year, Jesse at NeuYear.net contacted us about his awesome wall calendar. I’ve seen a few calendars in my day, so I wondered what made this particular calendar so awesome. So I checked out their website…which says the NeuYear calendar is awesome because…
It’s BIG. 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.
It has 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 TWO IN ONE. Not only all this, but its 2 calendars in 1! It has a horizontal orientation that fits perfectly above your desk, or you can flip it over for a vertical orientation that fits perfectly on your door.
Now, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you’re probably not at all surprised that after reading about this awesome calendar I was intrigued. After all, I’m a huge fan of beautiful organizing tools, and have been known to say that the more you love an organizing solution, the more likely you are to use it. But even more, as a visual girl (as I know so many of you are) I loved the idea of being able to see an entire year all in one spot…big and on the wall!
This format is terrific for planning future events (we used ours to map out our core workshops for the entire 2013 calendar year!) and it’s also terrific for tracking progress. Imagine tracking your goals on a big ol’ NeuYear calendar? Wouldn’t that be so motivating?
So after giving it a test drive of my own…I decided, yes, this is awesome enough to share with our readers. And so, share we will.
