The “Mega” Calendar and His Not-So-Little Buddy

In preparing my marketing plan, there are two things I absolutely, positively can’t live without: a large 2×3′ year-at-a-glance write on wall calendar and a 22×17″ month-at-a-glance desk calendar.

I purchase both from Staples for a total of around $30 and use them together to plan out my year, month, week and day.

The wall calendar is full of “colored yard sale sticky circles” (yep. . .it’s a technical term!) designating planned vacations (note the plural), conferences/workshops, my group programs, holidays, etc. – a different color for each so I can see “at a glance” what I’ll be doing.

Once those are in place (and also on my desk calendar), I plot out the monthly, weekly and daily activities a month at a time, except for product launches which typically span more than one month on my desk calendar.

You’d be amazed at how this helps to chunk things down so it becomes manageable.
