I Instagrammed this the other day and I thought I’d bring the conversation here because I loved the comments so much.
Here’s the dilemma. While in high school and college, I stayed almost entirely organized on paper. I had notebooks and agendas and index card and post-it notes. It was easy because I was mostly just going between my dorm room and my classes. The paper went in and out of my backpack.
Now… it’s a different story. With an insane schedule that changes by the minute, hundreds of emails a day, and the need to track directions to appointments means that I have to keep things pretty digital. For the most part, everything is on my computer and synced with my iPhone.
But I miss writing things down terribly!! The only paper lists I keep are on a notebook for everyday to-dos.
I change my bags so frequently to and from appointments… I worry that if I kept everything on paper that I would forget it sometimes. Or I’d be constantly erasing appointments to reschedule (seriously, what is it with New York City and canceling things last minute?).
A few months ago, I tried to do Evernote, but I found it so overwhelming. (I mean, sheesh…. so many steps and tricks to learn!)
Are you paper, digital, or a combination of the two? Any amazing apps you love to keep organized?
