nearly everyone on Earth the primary advantage will be time savings,
which translates directly into efficiency and productivity gains.
When someone has a monthly meeting on the first Friday of the month,
they will no longer have to refer to their calendar to see what
the date will be. They will instantly know it is the 5th of the
month, because that will be the first Friday of every month. For
annual events, people will no longer have to spend time studying
what dates will work. A three day conference in October can always
be on exactly the same dates. If it works on October 10-12th this
year, the same dates will work in succeeding years also. Time is
money and when small savings can be had by all, the total benefit
is immense. We all have some better way to spend our time than coordinating
dates with an ever changing calendar.
New Earth Calendar is an extreme simplification of the Gregorian
calendar which we have been using for a long time. But, given the
fact that business and commerce now drive the world, the immeasurable
efficiencies that would result from adoption of The New Earth Calendar
are very persuasive. Each month would have the same calendar, arranged
the same, four weeks, twenty eight days and every week begins with
a Monday and ends on Sunday. Never changes, year after year the
If The New Earth Calendar were to be adopted, it would be introduced
in the most seamless manner in a Gregorian year that starts with
January 1st on a Monday, as in 2001, 2007, 2018, 2029 and 2035…..or
such other future year. It would certainly take time to coordinate
the change so pick a time for adoption 20, 30 or 50 years out. Computers
could be programmed with both calendars available to ease in the
transition. Beyond that, we would just need to commit to making
the change. Try it…..give it a test drive in 007, along side
the Gregorian calendar. For the first 28 days of January, the two
are identical and then the change will become apparent. I believe
you’ll like it.
This is not a fiber optic, 2.5 gigahertz, broadband widget; this
is so basic you don’t even need an instruction manual. Just
use it and enjoy. And best of all, there is no fear of it being
obsolete the day you buy one.....its good forever (and of course
it’s free anyway). In an era where high tech innovation is
a daily occurrence, it seems unlikely that a low tech change would
come along that might have such a profound influence on business
and the people of our world. Friends tell me it’s too logical
and that people don’t like change. But why not? It’s
a new century, a new millennium and why not a new perpetual calendar….with
a new month called Luna.
In order for this to happen, support for The New Earth Calendar
needs to be rallied. A big part of this is education and exposure.
The concept is not difficult but the endorsement and backing of
influential individuals and groups is essential. While promotion
is needed, so are your comments and feedback.
