It’s time for a new calendar
Everyone says they’re busy, but most of us struggle to make headway on what’s most important. Life feels like it happens to us, instead of like something we’re creating.
Our calendars are failing us.
The traditional month-grid calendar layout (think iCal and Google Calendar) was designed hundreds of years ago to help people plant crops and pay taxes. It can’t distinguish between routine events and the things that are truly important. And by only showing a single month at a time, it lets deadlines sneak up on you.
Most of us see our schedule as a depiction of our bondage.
Make it a tool for staking out your freedom.
Calendars Tell Stories
They narrate our past and frame our future
Build and Share Calendars, Schedules, and Timelines
We’ve created a series of timelines around the 2020 US Elections. We’re able to vote in November because generations of activists, lawyers, and teachers marched, fought, and VOTED. These timelines put our votes in the context of this struggle.
Work at Longer Timescales so Deadlines Don’t Sneak Up On You
We overestimate what we can do in a year. And underestimate what we can do in ten years. Long term, intergenerational projects require new tools for looking across long time scales. We need to change the way we see time by changing our daily view.
