A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
TheButterflyEffect Planner strives on the virtue of growth and experience.
Being a research and wellness company, we never stop developing new ways of understanding life and creating helpful tools for insight. We strongly act on the purpose of awakening, promoting positive transformations and mindful practices.
This project is dedicated to all generations to offer a survival guide to understanding Life, which offers tools for each key area of life: career goals, self-education, personal development, self-esteem, gratitude, altruism, learning lessons, positive affirmations, and more.
While productivity and success are becoming a non-spoken measure of worth, people are looking towards unhealthy ways of creating wealth, without looking inwards to find their calling and purpose. With TheButterflyEffect's simple structure, we're helping young adults around the world to promote setting goals, according to their own passions and abilities.
Teen Survival Guide:
Currently, it's all about how you look on the outside. Smiles and highlight realities consume the minds and timelines of our generations. But what about how we feel on the inside. Statistics show that while social media engagement is skyrocketing, so is the percentage of depression, low self-esteem, and anxiety.
This planner focuses on yours and your teen's mental well-being. And not just the highlights. We're offering a tool for awareness and reflection, so we can all focus on finding ways to acquire empowering beliefs while overcoming limiting habits and learn from the lessons we're being taught.
School's follow their own systems for education, teaching their students standard protocol, without leaving much room for expansion and curiosity. With that being said, TheButterflyEffect is focused on encouraging Self-Education, by choosing one topic every day to learn about. This allows our minds to stretch beyond the limits of conformity and learn about topics that appeal to us, without hours of overwhelming study time.
Simplicity is key.
According to a study, conducted by Microsoft, the average attention span of human has dropped from 12 seconds to 8.25 seconds over the last two decades. This is not something to be laughed at; rather it is the deepest area of concern for the entire human race. Our journal offers quick and simple questions, so we can focus on improvement, without over-exerting our minds with long journal entries and goal planning.
It's proven that humans learn better from stories and experiences than by being taught words and concepts. Help yourself and/or your child(ren) learn from their experiences, with TheButterflyEffect's monthly, weekly, and daily personal reflections.
Our generations are living in an ever-increasing fast-paced world. With social circle's becoming the core focus of our minds, there is a lack of real engagement in our communities. Younger generations have no idea how the effect of their current conditioning will impact their real-life social skills and communication abilities. So, we've built a tool that will promote participation in the community and family environments, by helping individuals find fun ways of giving back and getting together.
Affirmations are the most infallible way of creating a positive and empowering inner dialogue. Let's teach ourselves a little thing about compassionate self-talk. After all, what you think, you become. By finding creative and insightful ways to practice daily and weekly affirmations, we promote the development of a healthy and positive subconscious mind.
How many people, nowadays, are so focused on what they don't have, that they forget what they do? That Gucci belt their friend just got, that new house, that new car... Let's rewire the collective mind, to seek positivity and things to be grateful for in our life. This allows people of all generations to actively look for things to appreciate, while also allowing for space to hope for something better.

DESIGN THAT APPEALS:
The toughest challenges we have faced thus far were trying to combine a versatile design with a fully organized and functional layout; but moreso designed a book that is light, discreet, and easy to carry. We were sure to drastically reduce the size and weight of our books (in contrast to our last campaign) without compromising the quality and authenticity of our planners.
QUALITY AND LEAD TIME:
We have already set a contract with a supplier, and they have organized large team to help us in the manufacturing and importing of our journals. We have set several deals into places with our manufacturer. Once our goal is reached, they have assured their best team on the job to meet all specified deadlines. That said, we are aware unexpected challenges come up. They understand the importance and priority of our project campaign, and have determined they will do everything they can to prevent the risk of any Quality or Time-related challenges.
Shipping was, by far, the most time and energy consuming challenge we faced in our last campaign. That being said, we definitely learned our lessons. We were sure to DRASTICALLY improve our shipping methods for this campaign, first beginning with the size and weight of our notebooks. With guarantee, we can assure that Standard Shipping times will be cost-efficient AND time-efficient during this campaign. As of (our calculated) January Delivery deadlines, we can estimate that shipping times with vary between 5-12 days from dispatch, and will be sent with better packaging AND shipping providers. We will NOT be using Amazon Fulfillment in this campaign.
This is a challenge that is easily avoidable. We assure our backers will be kept up-to-date with the progress and evolution of this campaign. We will keep our backers informed by posting regular updates as well as answering any comments, questions or emails submitted by our backers. This will hopefully establish a respected relationship between our backers and ourselves, and improve overall customer satisfaction. You can contact us directly at: email@example.com or Direct Message us via Kickstarter.
The only real challenge that lies out of our hands is the success of this campaign. We have done precisely everything we can to appeal and reach out as many people as possible. While everything else is set to go, we just need your support!
