I have writing pads all over house and office and I write on one/more of them every day. Are some things also recorded digitally?
Yeah, but that just isn't how I roll!
Plus, when manifesting, pen to paper concretizes intent in a way that voice recording or hitting a keyboard does not.

I have struggled to be totally digital, and then surrendered and returned to paper. In days of old, I was a big Daytimer person. However, I have started using what is called  bullet journaling, and my life has become far less complex and more productive.

Pen to Paper will never be replaced by digital in my world.

Physiologically speaking, it commits it to memory when you write it down, digital doesn't.

If I relied on digital, I'd forget to go look. I write things down - from the day's to-do list to my grocery list, to the other errands I need to do when I go into town.

Like Brenda Mayette - I do occasionally write things down just to cross them off. That way I can remember that I got them done!

When I was an agent I used a Franklin Day planner - loved it.

I write everything down.

Use a steno notepad to write things as I work in my desk during the day.
Use it for immediate things that need to get done, mental notes, etc.
Good to go back and "see" what happened a few days back.
Works as a log book.

Use small sticky notes on my computer monitor for stuff that needs to get done later. Trash them as stuff gets done.
