Circa Balanced Life Stepped Project Notebook
Things don't fall off my plate anymore!
The Stepped Project Notebook is the solution to multitasking at work. I have multiple projects at work, and was overwhlemed with to-do lists. I would forget about projects that were not right in front of me. This stepped design allows me to see the titles of the projects I am working on, without being overwhelmed by the tasks associated with each. I relate the different size pages to the size of each project - Larger projects are on larger pages, smaller on smaller pages. I list daily/monthly reminders on the smallest page in the front as a reminder. Julie Morgernstern's time saving and organziational techniques are exactly what I have been searching for! Thanks!

Stoked about Stepped
I'm chronically disorganized. My desk invariably turns into a pile of papers; and I have a terrible time keeping track of details.
Counterintuitively, in my work I've become responsible for a number of projects, each with a myriad details. Although my work is primarily digital, I manage better with visual systems.
I've only been using this notebook for a few days, but I'm already finding it to be extremely effective. I keep written summaries of my projects in the notebook, so I can refer quickly to important details when asked a question. I'm crossing my fingers. This might be a system that works for me.
Levenger, PLEASE create refills for this notebook. I already own a number of junior-size covers, and it's a waste to keep buying more. (In fact I'm about to buy 5 more of these notebooks).

An Efficient and Useful tool
This Stepped Project Notebook is a very efficient and useful addition to the Circa line. Professionally I routinely have several projects occurring simultaneously. This notebook became instantly useful upon arrival, as its format allows me to quickly turn to the project in question and stay on-task. As a matter of fact, I just ordered another.

An Exceptional Organizational Mechanism
I, also, have separate Stepped Project notebooks for areas such as Books and Reading, in which each book that I read is a "Project" and the stepped system allows me to separately detail specifics of the book's content, quotations, references and further reading, and the outline for a book review.
In a sense, each "Project" section is a gathering point for notes, thoughts and ideas, info from publications and others, etc.
A quote from Behance summarizes the role the Stepped Project notebooks play in my life: "Peace of mind and productivity starts when you know where everything is!" And this system helps me achieve that.

Excellent...if they last
These pages are the answer to my organizational issues. I was so excited to find them...but I've loved other circa products in the past, only to have them disappear. I want to buy up a supply before that happens, but I have way more covers and discs than I will ever need...I just need the pages. I wish they sold refills!

to all of my to-do list issues. I have been tyring to figure out how to keep multiple project/life area to-do lists easily accessible and visible in one portable place. I have finally found it. This little book is definteily a lifesaver - my only concern is that Levenger doesn't have refills noted on the website, unless I missed that - will defintely want to purchase some.
