Planner Sighting at Starbucks
The other day, I went to Starbucks for lunch. As I settled myself into one of their comfy leather chairs, I noticed a couple at a table. They each had laptop with them, each doing work of some kind. After a second look, I noticed an open planner next to the girl’s laptop. From where I was sitting, I couldn’t see much detail. However, it looked as though it may have been a DayTimer or Franklin Covey (definitely not any Filofax binder). It appeared to be an A5 style, perhaps something similar to this or this. I don’t know if it was an open style binder or a snap style, but it definitely was not a zip binder. From what I could tell, the inserts were two pages per day, something similar to this, though they could have been a page per day. It was a little difficult to tell. I tried to sneak a peek as I walked by, but I didn’t want to be too obvious in my nosiness. I thought about going over and saying something, but it’s that whole “they’ll think I’m a nutter” fear that kept me from doing so. And I would have taken a picture to post—even contemplated it for a mere minute—but didn’t feel that it would be right to post a picture of something that belonged to someone else without their permission or knowledge. I can tell you that the planner was big and hefty, was being used along side of a laptop (I wonder how she integrated digital and paper planning, if at all), and was in use at the time of the spotting. I just hope she kept it free from coffee spills, though on the other hand, it would have given character to the day’s page(s).
