Three years ago I read “The One Thing” by Gary Keller. This book created some new perspective on my private and job-related life. The author brought is own company back on the road to success. Later he wrote this astonishing book.
What is really important?
Basically the author emphasizes that you have to know which activity is really necessary for your private and job-related progress.
Unfortunately this is really hard today. There are so much distractions and some of them are made by ourselfs. Before I make that important call
- I clean my desk
- or I check my e-mail-account
- or I get a cup of coffee and have a chat with the colleagues.

Just like last year I offer my vacation-planner 2017 today for free. I’m sorry that it took so long. I just forgot about it and made other excel-templates instead.
Here we go with the vacation-planner 2017. As you can see in the next picture you get an overview for your employees when there are on vacation or on duty. Just activated the cell and format it with a color (I use darkgreen here).

We are still about 3 months away from 2017 but some early birds are already asking for next year’s calendar and that is a good thing. Having a clear picture and schedule for the future is one of the pillars to become successful, professionally and privately. The 2017 Full Year Calendar features 14 sheets. The first sheet shows all the 12 months at a glance and gives you space to write down some notes. The next 12 sheets belong to every month and show you public holidays and have also a place where you can write down some notes. The last sheet is for January 2018, so that plan ahead.
It should be noted that this calendar is print ready.

Every company, whether it has 5 or 5 thousand employees, needs to track the absence and availability of its personnel. This enables the company to pay its employees fairly, avoiding any disputes, and keep record of their overall performance and availability over time. There are many software out there that streamline this process for the human resource department of middle to enterprise-sized companies, but these solutions are expensive and add too much complexity and overhead. Small business owners and startups with a few employees need a simple and effective way to keep track of their employees’ absence and this is why we publish this week the free Employee Absence Tracking Calendar Microsoft Excel template.

In some smaller working environments, it is seen as rude or unsocial to forget a colleague’s birthday.
This week, to equip you with the necessary tools to keep up to the task, we introduce the Birthday List Free Microsoft Excel template.
