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!
- How could I effectively use my time without laziness
- I need this to be so simple. And struggle to now what to include and what to leave out. Too basic and they seem pointless. Too detailed and they seem to take up too much time I could be focusing on other things… any suggestions on how to prioritise and discriminate between tasks to include and task to accept as given.
- Do you write the small and mundane tasks like cook, go for a walk etc on your list?
- What do you include in your most basic routines- what is something that simply must be done no matter what?
- Do you write only a few tasks on your to do list, or do you write everything that you have to do and then pick the top three or so to get done today? I’m never sure which approach is most effective.
- Do you check and adjust your to do list throughout the day? How do you remember?
- Do you ever feel like you write to much stuff to do for one day?
- Do you write down your routines too or skip them since they are ‘routines’?
- Which order do you accomplish your tasks? Due date? Importance? Fun making it?
- what are some things you always put on your to do? do you find that having the same activity at the same space everyday makes you more likely or less likely to actually do it??
