Timelines tell stories; what are yours?
Stories About Our Work
Our calendars and schedules are more than just plans for our future. They’re stories we tell ourselves–stories about what we’ll work on next week, and what our capacity might be next month.
Cram those stories into 30-day grids and they’re likely distorted and incomplete: and so is the story you’re telling yourself.
And if you’re tackling intergenerational problems–climate change, greenbelts, space flight–you need a calendar that can look out towards the horizon of your projects.
Even folks working on short-term projects, or kids doing schoolwork, can benefit from doing their daily work at a longer timescale so deadlines don’t sneak up on you.
