I’ve been using Year At-A-Glance Wall Calendars for years. They always boot, need no batteries and can be seen easily. They are my favorite general calendar planning too. Buy ’em on-line, save both time and money.
A visual tool like this is advantageous over an electronic screen as it is always “on”.
The 12 months on the same poster provide a perspective of timing as to how far or close an event date is. A month by month calendar provides focus for the exposed current month, but hides upcoming dates and allows them to sneak up because you can’t see them until the calendar page flips.
If you’re a linear thinker like me, you’ll like the peace-of-mind a year at-a-glance wall calendar gives you.
