Which do you prefer: a physical planner or an online calendar?

It's mid-fall. You know what that means—it's planner season. If you're a planner person, now is the time to shop around for the planner that will bring you peak productivity in 2020. Still, most people opt for virtual calendars—when you're on your computer and devices all day anyway, it only makes sense to keep all your tasks organized online. Still, fans of the physical planner say writing down all reminders, events and tasks helps them remember. What do you think?

Keeping a physical planner is a favorite pastime for many. From the days of school-themed planners in high school, to the all-encompassing Passion Planner, writing down your many to-do list items helps you remember to actually do them. Physical planners are a tangible reminder of everything on your calendar, and virtual options just don't cut it. The New York Times' Kristin Wong refers to the Wirecutter's Jackie Reeve for insight on calendar dynamics:

“If you’re using your phone, you’re going into different apps for different purposes,” Ms. Reeve said. “Your calendar won’t do everything: You might be using a separate to-do list app, you might be using a separate app for notes. So one of the benefits is having this one book that can have everything in it. You can have it all in one place, and it can be almost as portable as a phone.“

There's no need to spend $30 on a planner every year. Google Calendar, Trello, ZenDay and more are all ready and willing to make your day easier. A physical calendar is a burden. What happens if you forget it? Or if you don't have a pencil or pen handy? Most people end up scheduling meetings on calendar apps anyway, so you might as well lean fully into moving your life to the interwebs.

What happens when the internet ultimately crashes and all of your organization goes down with it?

A better alternative to Google Calendar: a giant wall calendar. Keep a planner, keep a 365-day calendar, keep a maps-of-the-world monthly calendar. Keep all the calendars—just keep them off your computer.
