This notepad understands. It understands your hustle, your passions, your exhaustion. Based on Adam J. Kurtz’s super-popular print, this list ledger helps you separate work and life in a balanced way.
From the author/artist:
“Here’s the deal: Being busy isn’t a personality. Being tired isn’t helping you ‘kick ass, boss babe!’ None of the inspirational aphorisms in the world are going to replace things like sleep, sunshine, positive relationships, washing your hair just to feel the water on your face, and all those other real-life things.
“My wish for you is balance: plenty of things going on in your professional and personal life. Ups and downs, learning experiences, huge successes, and ‘anecdotal research’ on your way. Use these pads as you plan, build, and grow. This shit is real, and it helps.” —Adam
