Action Calendar - 2023
In 2017, I decided to design a calendar. Intended for personal use only, as I wasn’t particularly happy with the designs available online (at least from the ones that I could find). I printed a batch of these on A5 board and gave out to a few friends. However it was my wife who showed me how this design could be used successfully. She used it to track how many of her prenatal (and then natal) pills she was taking daily. One dot for every pill taken.
When 2018 rolled around, she was the only person pestering me for the latest version, so I knew that at least one person saw value in this design, maybe others could benefit with the same? The second attempt for 2019 looked to update the previous design slightly and added a few new features. This second edition of this design was not as successful. Part of this is the fact that this particular calendar works well only when it is a physical object, not a digital one.
This third edition for 2023, builds on the previous designs, keeping the elements that worked, while addressing shortfalls.
I hope it serves you well.
