2008 WorkWeek Calendar

2008 WorkWeek Calendar

*UPDATE: The calendar has been updated for 2009 and is available for download here: 2009 Work Week Calendar.

Every year, my employer provides badge-sized calendars to help countdown the days until the next holiday. Seeing how giddy my coworkers get when they receive their free calendar, I thought it might be a good idea to give all readers of this blog a similar gift!

First, some bad news…

Since we’re nearing the end of January, you only get to make use of 48 workweeks instead of the normal 52. And just in case you were curious, the first workweek of 2008 was determined by the week which contained the first Thursday in January; the calendar isn’t exactly ISO 8601 compliant but it comes pretty darn close.

Now for the good news…

Just like sunburns and chicken pox, this calender is completely free! Simply CLICK HERE to download the Excel spreadsheet that contains your free 2008 workweek calendar. Feel free to print a copy for your cozy cubicle or home office. You can even send a copy as a gift to that special someone who you’ve been stalking on Facebook… or better yet just make a copy for yourself.

Included in the spreadsheet is a candy bar style calendar based on David Seah’s Compact Calendar. Feel free to modify the calendar any way you see fit, and be sure to relay any mistakes or corrections that I might have missed!

  9. This is great…now that it is nearing 2009, I need to count projects into that time. Can you append this for 2009?

    @Chuck – I have a 2008-2009 spreadsheet that’s similar to this work week calendar with the exception of the formatting and it’s missing the candy bar style calendar. You can download it by clicking here. Just an FYI, this calendar was created with Office for Mac so the formatting may be a little off if you’re using a Windows PC. Anyway, let me know if this works for you.

    @Shannon – Sure thing, it’s on my to-do list so look for it soon.
