December is drawing to a close. In the new year if there is one tool that can help you claim your schedule & own your time – it is the humble desk calendar.

 

Calendars are those rare items that have stood the test of time. Even though digital calendars and apps are now available, many still prefer to have a physical calendar at both home & work. For entrepreneurs, who juggle multiple tasks, maximizing one’s productivity is an important measure of success. Effectively using your desk calendar can make a positive impact on streamlining your schedule.

 

  • Plan & schedule

A calendar can be used as a planner. You can jot down your weekly or monthly appointments, meetings, seminars & travel dates. The advantage of using a calendar as a planner is that it provides a great overview of your weekly/ monthly schedule and helps you track your commitments.

 

  • Track progress

You can use the calendar to track your progress towards a specific goal. This could be a health & fitness goal. Eg track your fitness regimen, calorie intake or weight-loss goal month on month. Professionally, you may want to track your monthly sales and set corresponding targets for the growth of your firm.

 

  • Mark important dates

One of the primary functions of a calendar is that you can use it to remember important occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, milestones at work and festivals. Its nice to be able to wish your family & colleagues on special occasions and a calendar can enable you to do this conveniently.

 

  • Keeper of records

Calendars can be records of valuable information. You may jot down notes in each cell of a date. Avoid tearing off the old months of calendars once the month has ended, to keep this record of notes for future reference. Calendars are an effective medium to track the past as well as the future.

 

  • Personalised gift

Calendars also make for great giveaways at the beginning of the year. A personalised calendar is an ideal gift to give friends, family members & colleagues. A customised calendar can feature personal photos and is something that is relevant the entire year-round. Personalised calendars are ideal to commemorate important milestones, memorable holidays or offsite events.
