Paper vs. digital to-do list.

Some people prefer a paper to-do list, while others like to go digital. Let’s look at the pros and cons of each one.

Even if you have a great memory, sooner or later, you’ll forget something - it happens to everyone. Creating a to-do list will help you remember the tasks you need to complete, and it reduces the stress and worry that you might forget something important. When you think of something that needs to get done, add it to the list and forget about it.

The pros and cons of a paper to-do list vs. digital.

If you want your to-do list to include a combination of sketches, numbered lists, bulleted items, and notes, you probably want to create it using the pen and paper method. When an idea hits you, just grab your notebook or a pad of paper and start writing. The only limitation is your imagination.

On the other hand, many people are drawn to digital to-do lists because they’re portable. When you create a list on your computer, you can also access it from your smartphone or another digital device. This portability means you always have access to your updated to-do list.

Enjoy the best of both paper and digital.

One creative way to get the flexibility of a paper to-do list and the portability of a digital one is to use a digital scanner app. This way, you can create any kind of paper list you want, then scan and upload it to all your devices for maximum portability.
