Content-wise this is good. But I was disappointed by the size - its much smaller than I'd imagined when buying it.
I like calendars to be larger than this - with room for notes/commitments

5.0 out of 5 stars always surprising and thoughtful 16 Nov 2013
By J. H. Zimmerman - Published on Amazon.com
I love it! I give it as a gift every year to 5 or 6 people and have been buying it for about 8 years or so. Various pages have been posted throughout our house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have bought for me and given this for years! 17 Dec 2013
By Avid Learner - Published on Amazon.com
These Zen quotes sometimes leave me scratching my head. It's always good to ponder an unknown. Other days, I'm so touched, I'm nearly in tears or laughing out loud. It's never disappointed me! Makes a great, little, inexpensive gift, too.

Simple way to include a little zen in your life, even if it's as you're walking out the door. Great intention or pondering for your day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Need a little more ZEN-NESS 4 Jan 2014
By Kathleen M. Diehl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Calendar|Verified Purchase
Maybe it's just me, but right out of the box, I was a little grossed out by the ugly yellow plastic stand it's attached to - not a pretty yellow or a soothing Zen shade - more like pee pee or play-doh. And the plastic looks/feels very cheap like a dollar store child's toy. So I took a deep breath in, and held it until I could view it differently. Sure enough, the yellow started to change its shade, and peace was restored.

I opened this calendar on Saturday, 1/4/14, so I had a few pages to tear off. That's when my chi was again disturbed. You get a page a day M-F, but Sat/Sun share a page (half page each)? I looked more closely at the box, and nope, it doesn't say "Page a Day Weekdays Only" calendar. In fact it says, "Wake up each morning to the wisdom of the sages." But wait, the back of the box also shows images of both the ugly yellow stand and the shared weekend pages. Obviously there is no one to blame here but myself. The question is, am I really here?

The pages are on the thin side - you can see through them to some of what's on the next day's page. I choose to view that as Wonderful! Glass half full. Not only do I get to see both today's and tomorrow's (Sunday's) koan on the same page, I get a sneak peak of Monday's as well. That's how I know that "Every day I must say to myself, today I am going to begin."

Renewed in my commitment to achieve enlightenment, I open the easel piece to stand the calendar up. It's at least an inch too short, making it lean way too far back (about 45 degrees). There goes my vision of setting it on my computer hutch alongside my photo frames. Not only does it look like it's falling down (backwards) up there, I can't even read it due to the angle. I think it's because I'm not supposed to read it from below. I'm supposed to meditate until I float upwards enough to see it.

1 star for quality and construction, 5 stars for offering me challenges that break me down, only to make me stronger. And 2 stars for the lovely and interesting Zen sayings, which I will use to ignore everything I hate about the calendar. Don't judge my math.
2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 18 Jun 2014

Half way through the year and I'm ready to toss this calendar. You really need to be more into "Zen". I was hoping for more meditations or 'ponderings'.
