I received a NeuYear Calendar a few weeks ago. Basically it’s a large planning calendar that seeks to be stylish & innovative. They started their idea on Kickstarter over a year ago, and this is the finished product. According to their site, the NeuYear Calendar unique in the following ways:
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 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.
I got mine up in my office, but haven’t started using it yet. But I think it could be a helpful wall calendar to have hanging to get myself organized for 2013. They have a normal paper version, or you can get the dry-erase version (which I did).
You can order one by clicking here, or you can be one of the first 5 commenters who says GIVE ME ONE and you’ll get a free one shipped to you! The contest is over, and we actually gave away 10 NeuYear calendars!
