Recently a reader contacted me to ask for planner recommendations. She is a very busy person and needs to have a planner with days timed to the hour for her busy schedule. I was happy to give her recommendations, and she chose a planner that will work great for her!
Quo Vadis planners are the first and original weekly planners with time management features built right into the planner. More than 60 years ago, a doctor was fed up with the diaries at the time which were only one day on a page. So he created the first weekly grid planner allowing him to see appointments and tasks across the entire week in one view. Quo Vadis planners were born! And they have been at the forefront of time management ever since.
Quo Vadis planners with timed daily columns have loads of time management features built in to the planner so there’s no setup time, you just open up your planner and start using it!
These planners let you see your schedule for the entire week alongside your tasks for that week, and they help you plan ahead effectively.

Pocket size January-December: Business
Pocket size August-July: University
Medium Jan-Dec: Excutive
Large Jan-Dec: Minister
Large Aug-July: Academic Minister
Extra Large Jan-Dec: President
Large Jan-Dec with daily notes: Trinote
Extra large Jan-Dec with daily notes: Prenote
Here are some of the time management features built into these planners:
Daily schedule timed to the half hour so you can see your entire week at once and know at a glance when your time is blocked and when you have open time:
Weekly lists dashboard to keep your tasks categorized and visible every week:
Seeing your weekly task lists alongside your schedule allows you to see what you need to do and when you’ll have time to do it, so you can fit your week together like a jigsaw puzzle.
Daily Priority boxes:
Anno planner so you can see an overview of your entire year:
In this post you can see the size comparison of Minister planner format in sizes pocket, medium, large, and extra large.
Even planners with large pages are slim and portable so you can take your planner with you everywhere in your bag!
In addition to all of these excellent features, these planners have smooth Clairefontaine paper made in France (and the paper in the large and extra large planners has specifically been designed to perform well with fountain pens). The paper is acid-free and archival quality so you can keep your planners as records for years to come. These planners also have sewn bindings that lay open flat, and soft refillable covers.
