Since 2014 is starting to fill up quickly I have to get organized early. Levenger sent me one of their Circa smartPlanner 2014 Agenda + App Sampler (in Junior Size) to review and it’s being put to use already!
Levenger’s Circa system all works around one main feature – their Circa discs. The discs are interchangeable so you can change your style at any point. They can be quickly twisted out and replaced with others. But there is another advantage. instead of having a three ring binder, your paper will be cut with grooves. You can quickly remove a piece of paper without opening a binder, and without fear of holes tearing.
Besides the usual use as a planner the Circa smartPlanner can be used for very specific uses as well. You can even get an App pack with the planner. Levenger offers 9 different organizational apps to customize your planner including: Travel Tamer, Ideation Station, Doodler, Scheduler, Meeting Notes, Contacts, To Do, Take-with Lists (perforated) and Keep & Share Notes app. You can order one the the one that fits your business style, or even a sampler pack to get a few pages of each.
My favorites of the organizational apps? The Take-With List, Keep & Share Notes and the Travel Tamer. The first two are obvious since I can put the information I need in the book and share with others as needed. But the Travel Tamer, I can put everything for one trip on one page – flight number, hotel and more. I see that being used a lot over the next year! These pages are in the back of the planner now, but can be moved anywhere on my calendar as I need them.
There is one more un-advertised feature I like about the Levenger Circa smartPlanner system. At the bottom of each planner page is a small triangle you can remove once the day, or task is complete. No more pulling pages out of the planner and losing information just to get to a current day!
