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 do when you can’t finish the tasks on your list before the end of the day?
- Should you floss once a day or more?
- Do you usally have breakfast before or after your exercise?
- What was the best advice you ever received on being productive?
- I like to mix up what exercise I do each day based on how I’m feeling. Do you think this makes it less of a “routine” when it’s not always the same?
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)
- How do you stay consistent?
- Does your to-do list include daily tasks or more tasks that are long-term?
- Where do you write down your to do? Do you have a notebook or calendar or an app on your phone?
- When you use to-do apps, do you also write them down on a physical planner, or vice versa?
- What do you for a to do list?
- How much detail do you put into the to-do list? How much time do you take to fill it?
- When you write your to-do list, are you combining your professional tasks with personal ones? Or do you make two separate lists?
- How do you decide when you want to remove a thing on your to-do list? That always feels weird.
- What do you do with big tasks that can’t really be broken down? How do you motivate yourself to complete them?
- How do you make sure you don’t forget to do your to do list?
