As long-time readers will know I am nuts for calendars. Now that December is here I am chomping at the bit to get down to my local bookstore and pick up my planner for 2013!
Jesse Phillips from NeuYear contacted me last week about taking a look at his company’s new design for a full-year calendar.
“Of course”, was the obvious answer!
This is what Jesse has to say about it (and read to the end for a chance to win a free copy for yourself!)
How was your 2012? Was it awesome? Did you achieve your dreams? … No? Well, did you have a plan? … Didn’t think so.
Making a plan is THE best way to accomplish goals. We’ve all got a great idea, but most of us live day to day, never making plans and never doing anything awesome, languishing in pools of complacency, drowning in a steady wave of the urgent and email.
NeuYear wants to change that. We want to help you think about your year, plan your goals, and do something awesome. NeuYear makes big, beautiful calendars that show the whole year so it’s easier to plan and achieve your goals.
Don’t waste your life! Do something awesome this year. Go to NeuYear.net, buy a big fat calendar, plan your life, and punch 2013 in the THROAT! Hiyah!
Be Intentionally Awesome.
What is different about this calendar?
27″ x 39″ – 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.
TWO IN ONE.
Not only all this, but it’s 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.
As the saying goes “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” This new calendar is a great tool to help you plan your dreams in 2012.
- Calendar spans 12 months: January – December
- Laminated for use with dry erase and dry wipe markers
- Larger boxes than most calendars, more space for writing
- Week is grouped into weekdays and weekend, for greater visual clarity
- Dotted vertical lines reduces “chart junk” and emphasizes your deadlines
- Has vertical and horizontal orientation on either side of page
- 27″ x 39″
- Fits perfectly on your door or above your desk
Pics or It Didn’t Happen
Here is a pic of the NeuYear calendar, hanging on the door near our kitchen. I put it up there so that my Lovely Bride and I could both use it to coordinate our activities.
