Your Mind is Meant for Thinking

Getting Things Done author David Allen says, “your mind is meant for thinking, not for storing.” With that thought in mind, I would like to share a product recommendation that will free up your mind and get the clutter out of your head.

Some of the May Designs books used by Nicole Schlinger


Mica May is the founder of May Designs, and an all around awesome entrepreneurial spirit. A designer by trade, she made her own notebooks to take to meetings and her clients and colleagues took notice.

May Designs started out with customizable notebooks, and while they are expanding to become a lifestyle brand, I believe the notebooks are the real star of the show.

Nicole Schlinger’s recommended May Designs notebooks has been featured on the Today Show, Real Simple, Birchbox and GMA


Notebooks come in three sizes. You choose your pattern, you choose your personalization and then you choose your inside pages. You can change up your slogan based on what you are tracking, your mood, or the time of year.

Unlike a big bulky planner … you can get a new May Book once every few months. They run anywhere from $15 — $28, depending on the size, quantity, and level of personalization.

My favorite is the undated “Weekly Agenda + Graph.”

Happy planning!
