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!
- What do you use to create your to-do list? ( e.g notebook, notepad , iPhone …😺)
- What is the best time for you to write your to-dos?
- Do you set aside time on Sundays to plan out the whole week or do you plan one day at a time? Why does that work for you?
- How do you stay consistent with your to do list to make sure you’re progressing forward and achieving your goals daily?
- Everything else being equal, how many to-do items so you feel comfortable putting on your list each day?
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.
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 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.
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.
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 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!
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 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.
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)
- Any trick to really first do the most important tasks?
- What color pen and paper to use for professional purposes
- How often do you complete everything from your to-do list?
- How do you keep track of things that you want to get done but not necessarily today?
- Do you use this to help with ADHD?
- How do I keep from making the list impossible to get done in a day?
- I have found the anxiety of listing leads me to more destructive avoidance behaviors. Do you have this problem? What do you do about it?
- Do you ever put frivolous activities on your to do list?
- How can I incorporate a disability into a feasible Todo list? Some days are bad, the pain is bad, I am not.
- How do you handle long term ToDo items? Things like « Thinking about future life projects », which is more of a background task than an actual item to « do » in the moment per se.
