How to Print Calendars Online For Better Productivity

There are hundreds of calendar apps for phones these days, and even more for PC desktops, tablets and other devices. Some are simple and easy to use. Others are more complicated and allow you to add features like alerts, or sync them up with multiple devices. If you are looking for a digital calendar you are truly spoiled for choice.

But I have never been a fan of these programs. Sure, they can be useful. But I have never been the type to keep my phone with me at all times, and I find the desktop versions to be distracting when I am trying to work. Especially when they alert me at inconvenient moments when I am trying to concentrate. When that happens, they are far from useful.

Maybe I am old fashioned, but I have always preferred real, paper calendars that I can check in my own time. The visual representation of the date and the tangible proof of what I need to do just sticks with me. Tom from puts it very well:

It is probably everyone’s habit of ignoring other stimuli when it comes from digital devices.

Luckily, the physical calendar hasn’t gone the way of the dodo. You don’t even have to spent $20 at a bookstore to get one, just print your own!
