The Great Paperless Experiment

I’m on day three of my great paperless experiment. Yes, this week I decided to see if I could live with just my online to do lists. I have several different ones, just as I did with my paper lists. One for general items. My calendar for scheduled items. And another for writing tasks. But all my electronic ones sync to my phone, which means I never leave home without them.

So far, so good, but it does feel strange to see blank pages staring at me from the notebooks that sit open beside my chair. And my computer/online lists aren’t perfect in the same way my written lists weren’t perfect: I still can’t manage them all in one place. But it’s close. In the end, I think it will come down to whether or not I can give up the actual act of writing things down when the week comes to its conclusion. For now, I’m not making any permanent decisions, but at some point I’ll have to either buy a new paper calendar notebook or not. We shall see. . .

Good luck, I certainly think that I could do with a little less paper in my life! But sometimes it is difficult to give up on habits that you have had for so long. Keep us posted - Lori

That is so true, Lori. So far I'm finding there are pros and cons to each way. Now to figure out which one has more pros and which one has the cons I can live with!
