Annual Planning Calendar

Once a year, I like to plan out my calendar, so that I can make sure I am not driven by the “tyranny of the urgent.” I call this my Annual Time Block. Unfortunately, I could not find a ready-made tool any where. Microsoft Outlook and Entourage calendars only enable you to see a month at a time. Same for Google. So, I created an Excel workbook that provides a full-year at a glance. In fact, the workbook has three sheets in it, so you can plan out three years if you are so inclined. I explain how to use it here.
