Time to Quill is a project that stemmed from my personal attempt to take control of the mayhem that occurs whenever I take on more than one project at a time, which as a management consultant, is almost always.

This is the combination of two tools which have served me well over the years. On the one side of the book is a flexible time tracking tool, turn the book over, and you have an advanced note pad. Other time tracking tools I have seen offer note taking to the side of time tracking. But what does one do when the notes for a given day exceed the space allotted? Both sides of Time to Quill work toward the middle. With over a hundred pages on each side, I expect that each copy will last you close to six months (if it does not, you have my sympathy). There is a reminder as you approach the middle to order a new copy.

What makes this time tracker different from most I’ve seen before is that it offers you the entire day in 15 minute increments, and does not assume that the weekends either start on a given day or are only half days. By allowing you to enter the date and specify the day of the week, you are in control of the calendar, not the other way around. At the top of each page of the time tracker is a place for recording the codes for up to six projects or clients. (If you actively work on more than six, once again you have my sympathy.) When I use my time tracker, I prefer to use red ink so that the state of my day is obvious. This way I am able to tell, at a glance, how busy I’ve been. That helps me feel better about taking a break or shutting down my work at the end of a long day. The first sheet has been filled out to illustrate how the time tracker is designed to be used.

What makes this notepad different from any I’ve seen before is that the lines are faded and cover multiple uses. There is a faint graph paper background, combined with shaded lines for long hand writing. Also, each page has a task list template in the top left corner. The reason all of these features are faded is so that they can also just be ignored and sketched over them all. So whether you are taking meeting notes, planning your day, drawing out flow-charts, or sketching what you see; the note pad section of Time to Quill will meet your needs.
