The “One of These Days...”
100-Year Calendar-Poster is
a Multi-Year Wall Calendar, a Long-Term Project Planner, a Dream Vacation Scheduler, the ultimate Bucket-List Calendar, a Lifetime Timeline, an Anniversary Keeper and Birthday Reminder, a Historical Push-Pin Map, a Chronological Chart AND a work of Conceptual Art.
The Hundred Year Calendar is a BIG Poster with 100 small calendars on it, arranged as 10 rows of 10 decades.
See the 2013 Calendar, animated to life-size on the illustration at left. You get an idea, but the impact of this 100 Year calendar cannot be adequately portrayed on a computer monitor.
To show all the detail, your screen would have to be 20 times the resolution (1270 dpi) AND be THREE FEET WIDE!
When you see this 35x45 inch artwork up close and in person, with over 36 THOUSAND Days on it, the effect is simply stunning... and this “Conceptual Artwork” was designed to have a powerful, perspective-altering emotional effect.
What is the “One of These Days...” headline saying?
It’s saying what you say, and what I say, almost every day: One of these days, I’m going to get in shape... I’m going to get a better job... I’m going to meet someone special... I going to own my home...
And on and on, whatever, you fill in the blanks with your own particulars. The point being that most of us don’t have a concept of what we mean by “these days.” This poster paints us a picture of pretty much all the days we have. It's a visualization tool, a visual aid and it really puts “Lifetime at a Glance” in perspective.
Some people find that inspiring. Some people find it motivating and stimulating. Some find it scary and some people find it downright depressing. I call it “art,” because, like all art, it’s meant to make you feel, maybe even think, and like art, it’s meant to look good on your wall. Since it was designed by an engineer, you may also use the 100-Year Calendar-Poster as graph paper for charting out you life, both past events and future plans.
OK, I “Get It” so how can I get one of these?
You can buy one here for under $15. These calendars used to sell at $30 apiece at my workshops when I went around the country giving talks on “Live Your Dreams... One of These Days.”
The not so subtle point of my talks was that we’ve only got a limited number of days left and that one of the days printed on this 100-Year Calendar will be your last. The ultimate “deadline,” so to speak.
But I stopped doing the motivational speaking road-show and now I prefer to just let the calendar-poster make its own point. If the Lifetime at a Glance 100-Year Calendar-Poster makes its point to you, go ahead and get one (or two or three or twenty - they make memorable gifts.) Here are some more details:
Actually made to last 100 years:
Printed by a commercial lithographic press (the same one that AAA uses for maps) so that even the small characters (all 80,000 of them) are crisply legible.
The image to the right shows the actual typography, magnified to 3x actual size.
- Printed onto a 35x45 inch sheet of archival quality 80-pound cover stock. This means that the paper sheet is substantial, thick as a business card, and artwork quality.
- Protected by a matte varnish glaze coating (hardens the surface and gives an off-white, slightly cream coloring to the calendar.)
- These calendars truly are designed to last 100 years
- This classic calendar encompasses the 100 years from 1950 to 2049
- Though this is not a classic perpetual calendar, it covers 50 years on either side of the millenium, plenty enough for most people. (Perpetual calendars only refer you to a set of year templates which you have to index from a long list of years. Perpetual calendars are in no way 100 years at a glance.)
