Life Story Calendar


A sense of purpose simulator with your dreams on the line.

You were supposed to be someone by your age.

You already missed the deadlines to your dreams.

Will you miss out again?

The Life Story Calendar is the social rites of passage-centered reimagination of the classic Stoic Calendar.

Use this calendar to write the story of your own life, and kill off parts of the plot you want to erase.

This calendar is inspired by the ancient principle of Memento Mori from Stoic philosophy. Memento Mori is a Latin phrase which means “remember death” or “thou shalt remember to die”.

What's inside

The story of your life in a Notion template

How will your life play out? Take advantage of decades of service in one template.

One-step setup

Just set your birthdate, and watch the Calendar calibrate itself. Everything runs in Notion; no APIs or third-party apps are needed.

Create your list of prophecies

Determine your prophecies: use the default, disable what isn't for you, and write your own. Use this space to experiment with the future.

Map out the past

Trace the cause and effect of how your life played out. What led to you being where you are now?

Plan the rest of your life

Imagine what your life will be like one year, ten years, and decades beyond today. Use this to plan ahead with the time limit per age in mind in the original table-Kanban board hybrid view.

Challenge the fates

Set your goals on certainty. Challenge the fates that will without a doubt cause more regret and envy if you do nothing about them.

Define your why

Write into being your ideals and reasons. Let your sense of purpose set the foundations of your discipline.

What you'll get

The Life Story Calendar, which is a calendar, planner, and fates library Notion template that shows you your milestones, rites of passage, and social expectations across different ages and lets you plan your life around them. Use the custom prophecies, or add your own.
