Analogue v Digital - to do lists and random notes

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

Analogue. Not even the merest whiff of digital!

I've never got on with any digital way of keeping track of 'to do' items. For a start, I often need to have them linked to a specific day or week, and I don't use a digital calendar, so that's a bit of a non-starter. And even if I did, the learning curve needed to work out how to have a task assigned to a specific day or week is so much more than writing it on a Post-It note and sticking it in my diary.

Analogue or Digital? Amanda and her diary...

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

Stu posted a while back about his fifty-thousand digital calendars, at which point I almost choked on my cuppa. Analogue friends, let me reassure you that some of us still swear by paper and pen. Let me introduce to how my diary/calendars work! I have three calendars/diaries on the go. All of them are paper. I have no digital calendars.

This is what I...
