It’s finally here! After posting the original Don’t Break the Chain calendar design back in May, I’ve gotten questions almost every single day about if I’ll make a full-year version for 2013. And so, due to popular demand, here it is.
If you’re new here and are completely lost about what it is all about, back in May, Charlie McDonnell posted a video called Don’t Break the Chain, where he shares the technique he uses to be sure he does a bit of work every day. He prints out calendars like these for each thing he wants to do, whether it’s work on a video or exercise, and for every day that he does that activity, he crosses off the day on the calendar. This creates a visual chain on the calendar so your motivation becomes seeing how long you can keep the chain going.
Good luck to everyone who uses this to motivate yourself, especially if it’s for one of your New Years Resolutions! If you can’t wait and want to get started now, you can still download the 2012 version from this blog post. And if you’ve been using that one since May, let me know on Twitter or Tumblr how it’s been going for you!
This is also the second to last day in my 12 Days of Christmas series, where I’ve been posting new content every single day for the 12 days leading up to Christmas Eve. Look out for a video on my YouTube channel tomorrow recapping the whole project, or if you want start getting caught up now, all of the previous entries are down below. Happy holidays!
