Tim Urban's original life calendars can be purchased here.
The idea behind Tim's life calendar is that each row in the grid is 52 boxes representing a year of your life, and there are 90 rows. Essentially a giant rectangular grid of boxes that fits on a single large poster.
The problem with this lovely idea is that it's quite difficult to actually find the box that corresponds to a specific date on this giant grid of blank boxes. Some annotation is required to make the calendar useful, and while there's plenty of space provided for this, it's a lot of work. So, when I discovered that I had essentially paid $20 for the opportunity to spend lots of time annotating a mostly blank poster, I had some ideas for extra features that make the calendar a bit more practical to use.
Here, you can download a ready-to-print PDF of your own personalised, easy-to-navigate Life Calendar, in the same style as Tim's calendar but with some additional bells and whistles:
- The box for the first week in each row is annotated with the date of that week's Monday
- Boxes for the week of your birthday are shaded
- Boxes for the week of the new year are shaded darker
- Boxes for weeks before today's date can optionally be shaded even darker
- Number of calendar rows (years) is configurable between 80-100
Unfortunately, you'll have to print it yourself; if I were to send you a printed one, I'd have to charge you money, and then I'd be into the poster-selling business, which apparently Tim and/or Tims lawyer(s) wouldn't appreciate...
