FOR AN EASIER, MORE EFFECTIVE LIFE

Usually this is just a wirebound notebook.
BUY THE NOTEBOOKS (3 ring) (See the links box major categories and specific notebooks.)

(2" notebooks measure 3" with a ruler)
Buy dividers that you can write on (buy 100 to start)
Buy 50 plastic sleeves (with three holes, hold 8 1/2" x 11" inch sheets, pictures)
Buy one for each of the essential notebooks (4 of the 2"; 2 of the 1 1/2")
Current Operations Notebook (1 1/2")
Current Year Plan (1 1/2")
Reminders (Grounding) Notebook ( 2")
About Me Notebook (2")
Personal Progress Notebook (2")
Choose whether to buy these optional LifeBooks, though I recommend that you do
The visuals notebook (2" - large, as you'll be amazed at how things accumulate)
The Memories Notebook (2" also)
These are to be set up and completed as "recreation" with no hurry, just for fun

LOCATION AND ACCESS
Place the essential notebooks together for easy access
That's it for now. Just use them when you want to work on something or put something in there for reference, making a labeled divider when needed.
