"Zen of Circa" Poem
Balance is the key they say,
a peacefulness ensues.
Oh, how I longed the day for that,
to experience these truths.
But life was scattered everywhere
and paved the road with mess.
The zen of my existence
was severely stressed at best.
And then, ....illumination
from my Levenger catalogue.
That one-with-all Circa system
could release me from this fog.
I organized to-do lists,
my schedule in full view.
The notes I always write myself,
Wow, I could find them too!
Circa was my miracle,
‘Nirvana’ so to speak.
Clutter, a distant memory...
My life is now at peace.

My Circa Workflow
Here is a brief overview of the workflow I use with my Levenger Circa system and how I handle archiving non-active notes.

Handsome portable flexibility
As a person that frequently switches between right brain and left brain processing, I love the flexibility of using the circa notebooks! By using colored paper along with the white (varying the rule as well - current favorite is the annotated rule), I can call attention to parts of a project at a glance. I can do the same thing with the 3x5 cards.
When writing with a fountain pen I feel more creative and formal, but the former challenge was bleed through. I do not have that problem with the Levenger paper. Even my cheap fountain pen and ink could still be read on both sides! (I do look forward to buying a Levenger pen in the near future though).
In my opinion, the only down side is that the leather notebooks are a bit pricey for every project (although the quality is very good). With that being the case I plan to use the standard circa notebooks with clear covers as I work on the projects, purchasing the leather covers as the final "seal" on a completed project giving it the formal presentation the project deserves.
I would highly recommend this product to others and feel confident in saying its use is only limited by the imagination of the user.

Excellent product with one quality flaw
I am very pleased with Levenger's products (I have shopped online and in-store) and always try to find ways to incorporate other products into my organizational system. I bought this product and, out of the box, I am very impressed with it except for one thing: upon removing the styrofoam wrap around the pen holder, the stitching of the pen holder completely ripped off, rendering it useless. Not the end of the world, though. I can work around it. I just expected a little more quality for something customers pay a pretty penny for.

Having recently transitioned from Franklin Covey planners to the Circa system, I'm finding these Circa notebooks to be everything they claim to be. Biggest thing is that they are so flexible and easy to configure, and this leather one is pretty good looking also. As a tool for note-taking and organization the Circa system is probably the best I've tried, and I would recommend this quality product to someone looking for such a thing.

I have found all levenger products to be of good quality and customer service is excellent - I bought this as a gift for someone going to college - I have one myself and it is an organizational pro and you can add or reduce to your needs - I would recommend to anyone, even for home use. When I moved it was invaluable.

A great foldover notebook!
This is a very functional tool for the office. In my first week of new job, I needed a tool to capture key data as I onboard. I always figured that a simple notebook would never do it, so I researched. I came across this and some various methods used my long time loyal users. It has worked for me quite nicely and is helping stay on top of it.
In a nutshell, it is an elegant no thrills simple notebook that is perfect for the office. I like that it is not ostentatious but very functional. Combine it with tabs and dividers, and you have a tool.

As with every Levenger product that I have purchased, the quality is outstanding. I love the Circa products and this is my first purchase of a classy notebook to go with some of my other Circa things. I came across Levenger when I was looking for a leather address book for my brother. I have been a fan ever since that first purchase!

Solid Little Notebook (Compact)
I bought the compact to complement the Junior and Letter sizes I already own. Good size that fits where the others might be a bit much.
Since it's part of a larger, well-thought-out, system, any notes take in this notebook are easily transferred to another notebook - making using various sizes in different situations feasible.
