The theme for this calendar is the old war-time slogan, which gets everywhere these days. Effectively, this calendar gives you a motivational boost each morning with a snappy one-liner (or longer), intended to gee up anyone staring blearily at a terrifying inbox, unassailable workload or minor personal crisis.
You will find that the message on some days totally misses the mark. 'After a bad harvest, sow again' is a fairly traditional theme, and I like ones along the lines of 'Life has two rules: Number 1, never quit! Number 2, always remember rule number 1' which made me wonder if that's where Fight Club came from! But some on some days the quote can be just plain chirpy and irritating. If you prefer ironic and dry humour, then maybe this calendar isn't for you. It's very straightforward; very bounce-bounce-bounce, up and at 'em.
This is a more lighthearted calendar than my personal favourite ( Zen Calendar Page-A-Day). It's also more straightforward and less baffling than the Zen one can be! So if you know someone who needs a bit of a boost in the morning, some straight talking to cheer them up, then this makes an ideal gift. Just bear in mind that the info tends to be quite American, so isn't tailored towards UK holidays, clock changes, etc.
