Whichever you prefer. Most of the time I like to use my real notebook. When I'm busy or rushed I use my digital notebook to note my thoughts.
- Is the paper / pencil based to-do list more effective as compared to a to-do app?
- Do you put a time limit you want to spend on each task?
- What kind of tasks do you put on your to-do list on an average day?
- Do you have a once-a-week habit where you spend more time on your to-do list so that you can spend less time working on it on a daily basis? If so how long do you spend on that once a week habit?
- I’m having a hard time writing my to do lists. I think I put too many things down for a day but at the same time they’re nothing significant, like go to work, talk to my bf, complete my morning routine etc. I’m also having a hard time setting a time to write the list. One night I wrote it down after dinner. The next night I forgot and wrote it in the morning very quickly before leaving for work. I need advice please!!!
I really like having a pen and paper one as well as a digital one for back-up. The pen and paper is my preferred because i like the physicality of it, but having a back up in case I forget to bring the physical helps me keep the habit.
I prefer a real notebook. In my experience I remember what I write down. I use post it notes for my To Do list. I can stick it to my daily planner.
I prefer digital notebooks when it's likely I will have to edit mosmthet of the information after it is written, like completing the notes I wrote a few days and pages ago, but for lists, logs and daily journals I think paper is better, plus it's faster to find the information from the dates before and write. You can make a doodle, or draw lines between tasks to show that they are connected and it s much simpler than editing the color and rder of priority in an app.

Although a didgutal notebook would be more convenient and allow you to keep notes for longer, the paper notebook would ensure you are really thinking about what you are writing. Plus the act of writing with a pen and paper seems to be somewhat cathartic and helps to reinforce the habit you are trying to build.
I think it is very much a personal choice. The advice of many seems to be that the act of writing has some value – reinforcing what you write …
I think a real notebook is best. O like to see things ok paper, and it helps with motivation because it is satisfying to criss things of the list physically
