I like to make physical list and put it somewhere where I see it all the time. When I make a digital list, I tend to close the app and never look at it again.
physical – writing it out physically makes me feel more organized and grounded, and then you get to physically cross/check each item off, which serves as a mini reward/celly
I prefer physical lists. There’s a satisfaction in checking things off or crossing them out with a pen vs. just clicking a button. Seeing my tasks in ink also make them feel more real somehow. Last but not least, if I don’t need to look at my to-do list on a screen, it lowers my screen time — when I’m on my cell or computer too much, I tend to start wasting time with games, FB, etc.
It depends on what it is for. For example, i prefer my grocery lists to be physical and written out. If it’s stuff that i just need to remember then i prefer digital.
I prefer a digital list, because I have my phone always with me, it allows me to add notes and thoughts on the go. I started fabulous with a paper notebook but the notebook ended up in a drawer so I am starting over with a digital notebook/to do list.
I definitely prefer physical lists. Digital lists have never been good for me. It's like the feeling of physically writing a list is the investment factor in a way. Keeping track of the paper itself is the constant reminder. And marking off each thing as it's completed is the satisfaction. Digital lists have ways of doing all those things but it'll never be as genuine and authentic in my opinion.
I prefer physical lists, they feel more real to me. But I have to have some electronic ones because of the complexity of my work. These are more like plans than lists though!
When I’m forced to think about it, I think I prefer physical ones. It’s quicker than writing on your phone (except when you are talking to it ), you have more time to concentrate on the job rather than to hassle with the typos. The only problem I have with the physical lists is that I might misplace them (which is resolved after I started using the notebook recommended by Fabulous)
Both. Physical is more tangible yet more difficult to carry when you move around the days. But would be helpful if you are at the office or at home, not having a nomadic day

I love all types of lists! I generally use more digital lists as the final list since paper lists can get misplaced or left behind. But I do love the physical list when it’s tome to cross things off!
- Do you have more than one to do lists? For example one for work and one for home?
- How do I write down and prioritize long term tasks that are due in the future but require work over many days?
- Does anyone write their ‘to do list’ at night instead of in the morning? I was reading that this is a great way to prepare for the next day.
- How do you ensure that great trauma (death in the family) does not reset your progress? I know habits will keep me sane, but they are hard to keep in grief.
- How do you choose your 3 most important tasks? Is it what has to be done as soon as possible? Or the things you really don’t want to do?
- How detailed do you make your to-do list? Do you make separate ones for home and work?
- When writing a to-do list, I often find that I don’t complete the tasks for the day, and write them for the next and the same thing happens. How can I ensure that I get done what I want to?
- How are you able to balance a busy life and taking time for yourself?
- Do you always do your to do lists or sometimes you put it as done while actually you haven’t done it yet?
- Do you write yours in the morning, the night before or as you know tasks need to be scheduled?
