Some of you may have noticed the recent stop-watching range from Paperchase. I love this design and it has taken every bit of self-control not to buy it all. What I did allow myself to purchase was the stop-watching stamp:
(Although I may go back for the mechanical pencil, cute washi tape and a notebook – if I can justify it).
Time Recording is a habit of lawyers. However, no doubt a lot of readers actually keep track of how they are spending their time with the intention of analysing it. I do have a strict time-recording process with codes etc, but once I purchased this stamp I thought I might try a more eye-friendly version of time recording.
As I am a morning person I try to maximise my time – particularly my first 3 free hours of the day (so I can relax after work without feeling guilty – or do more household chores). So combine my three hours with the stop-watching stamp and this is what I came up with:
As you can see I have my three stop-watching stamps – one for my hour pre-work, one for my first hour at the office as I drive in early to avoid traffic and have breakfast (if I have no urgent work) and one for my lunch hour.
I have simply drawn and labelled on each clock what I have spent my time on: a nice visual representation. Take a closer look here:
Great little inserts and visually look great. I fell this stamp could have many uses, for example it could also be used in the diary section of your Filofax if you wanted to give representation of your time.
