Some years ago, I did a Page-a-Day calendar based on The Happiness Project. To my delight, the calendar proved to be a very popular item, and it sold out very quickly.
For a variety of reasons, I haven’t done another calendar — until now! Yes, for 2017, I’ve created a Page-a-Day Calendar, crammed with tips, ideas, and quotes for how to build a happier life.
I had so much fun creating this calendar. For my whole life, my family has always given lots of Page-a-Day calendars to each other as gifts. I get the Word-a-Day calendar in my stocking each year (fun fact: today’s word is “nonplus”), and for a long time, my father always got the Gary Larson Page-a-Day; we’re all huge fans of Gary Larson’s cartoons. He kept it on his desk at his office, and when there was an especially good cartoon, he’d bring it home to show us. He even mailed me some of the pages when I was in college.
I love this way of taking in information in a bite-sized, day-by-day way. Thinking about one idea each day feels helpful and manageable, and gives a feeling of slow and steady progress.
The calendars are still being printed, but you can pre-order a calendar now:
UPDATE: Calendars are available now! Order yours today.
Because pre-orders build buzz among readers, retailers, and publishers, if you’re planning to buy a calendar (or one of my books), it really helps me if you pre-order it now. Plus, last time I heard from a lot of people who wanted to buy the calendar after it was out of stock. As you can imagine, calendar publishers are very wary about printing too many calendars.
As always, if you’d like to give the calendar or a book as gifts, sign up here to get free, personalized bookplates for the recipient. (U.S. and Canada only, sorry, mailing costs.) Or request a bookplate for yourself, of course.
I hope you find the calendar an engaging tool as you try to make your life a little happier. It’s not about perfection — it’s about being better than before.
