Circa Notebooks – The Never Ending Notebook/Journal
Efficiency experts will suggest that you keep notes in one place. When I don’t have my laptop handy to type notes into Evernote I often use my Circa Notebook. What makes Circa so special? Flexibility! Like other notebooks/journals, they come in different sizes and paper. However, the Circa system uses discs to keep the paper in the binder.
Like a looseleaf binder, you can move pages around, but without having to open and close the discs – just pull pages out, and push them in where you want them. And because of the disc system, you can take out pages that are dated and archive them in a box, or in a separate Circa binder.
When I go to a client meeting, I take my Circa with me and take notes on the next available page. I use Post-It flags to bookmark the “next page”. I also use flags to get back to pages I reference frequently. Any business cards will get taped onto the page(s). Other materials, like photos, will likely get taped onto the pages(s).
Let me show you how easy it is to move pages:
Over the years, I have had two Circa binders, and used a few hundred sheets of paper. When I go to a meeting, it’s always at my side.
