About

The Project Design Notebook

Inspired by a mutual desire to help big thinkers bring their ideas into the world, we’ve developed the Little Bright Notebook, a project design tool for creators and innovators.

The Little Bright Notebook is your space to dream, plan, organize and take action on a big idea. It is a tool designed to assist you as you plan the projects you are most passionate about. We recognize that you are the expert on your project, so we have made a product that gives you room to actualize your vision. It is a playbook for success - written by you.

ABOUT THE BOOK

The notebook is broken down into four sections designed to move you through each phase of your project. The notebook draws out your brainstorming process so that you identify all of the reasons this project is truly important before jumping into action. Then, it takes you through creating a detailed action plan - something a lot of creatives tend to skip. Finally, there are built-in reconnection points.

IDEATE 

The ideate section of the book gets your creative juices flowing. It helps you refine and articulate your big ideas guiding you to an actionable objective. The exercises and journal prompts also serve to create a connection between your project and your broader life goals that will get you to the finish line.

PLAN 

After you have clarified your objective, the notebook takes you through the nuts and bolts of the planning phase. From helping you assess the needs of your project against your current resources to building a team of collaborators, supporters and experts to get you to your end goal.

ACT

Planning is done - it’s time to get started! You will create a step-by-step plan with concrete actions and deadlines for each milestone of your project. The Little Bright Notebook provides additional support through exercises that lead you through reflection on and celebration of your progress.

REFLECT 

Finally, big thinkers need space to create. Each Little Bright Notebook has space for your doodles, storyboards and journaling sessions. Use it to help visualize your project, explore new ideas or start a task list. 

The choice is yours!

Who Should Use This? 

If you want to create something new - revenue for your startup, a line of mittens for mice, a community garden, a feature film, the romantic relationship of your dreams - this notebook is for you. 

So far, we have found that this notebook is particularly helpful for: 

  • People who are tackling large scale projects 
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Creative people with lots of ideas - but not a lot of structure
  • Super hard workers who get a ton done but miss feeling connected to their purpose and passion

 How we know it works

The Little Bright Notebook was created with Lenore's work as an entrepreneurship and leadership coach as its foundation. We brought in our  personal experiences from creative work and entrepreneurship, as well as, what we have seen succeed in over hundreds of hours of work with thousands of big thinkers to develop a set of tools that we believe will support you with your project.

We've led workshops with entrepreneurs and creative professionals to develop the content of the notebook and the responses we've received have been phenomenal.

Users share that the Little Bright Notebook has helped them with:

  • Formatting and planning 
  • Getting clarity around an idea 
  • Finding specificity 
  • Facing things that are hard to deal with but easy to put off 
  • Making things real 

Finally, we know the Little Bright Notebook will help you succeed because we used its foundational ideas to bring this notebook to you. The same structure and exercises we've built into the book are the ones that we used to bring our notebook to the world.

Why we're doing this

As creators we know how exciting it is to have a big new idea. You just want to jump in and start, right? We also know what it's like to lose track of your objectives, let the whole thing go for a different exciting idea, or lose your connection once execution becomes drudgery. We wanted to create something to help you maintain your connection to the big picture throughout the project's duration. We believe you will love our notebook and that your project will be a success!

Risks and challenges

Historically, the biggest challenge facing product based projects on Kickstarter has been manufacturing and shipping. We are fully committed to getting everyone who supports our Kickstarter campaign their Little Bright Notebook on time.

Since this is our first time manufacturing a notebook we've taken extra care to partner with an American factory that has over a century of experience printing, binding and shipping notebooks. We have also partnered with an expert who specializes in guiding creators through the manufacturing process and who is working with us one-on-one to ensure we have a smooth and successful first run.
