In the past when I've used a very large planner, I felt crazy pulling it out in front of people. This was one of the reasons why I stopped using my Extra Large Moleskine planner a couple of years ago, and same with my A5 Filofax binder too.
Interestingly, it's less about feeling like people are judging me for having such a big planner. It's more about feeling self-conscious about it. My life is really not that complicated. What's wrong with me that I feel like I need such a huge planner?
And to be honest, flipping expansive pages in a gigantic book in public to write in an appointment just made me feel nuts.
Now I don't carry a huge planner. My day per page A5 is pretty big, but it's well within the limits of sane-sized planners. And my weekly Plannerisms planner is very normal-sized and slim, no craziness there.
In recent conversations I've heard from other people who feel crazy using a too-big planner in public. Do you feel slightly nuts when you whip out your massive planner in front of other people? Or do you figure, hey, whatever works?
