When Did You Get Your 2008 Planning Calendar?

And how many appointments into the New Year are you?

I got mine in October and (not including b-days and holidays) already have things scheduled well into January.

When I was younger, I used to have a problem adjusting to the New Year - I would use the Old Year for the first month or two into the New Year. These days I have the opposite problem: I use the New Year mistakenly the last few months of the Old Year. The main problem is that business planning for 2008 is well under way, all new "deals" that are started now are 2008 deals just because of lead-time, and thinking about budget is all in 2008 dollars.

From a business standpoint 2007 is already over, except for retailers.
