Researchers studied digital calendars and paper calendars to determine which leads to better planning and higher efficiency. Their work is published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology.
"We demonstrate that compared with mobile calendar users, paper calendar users develop higher-quality plans and are more successful in plan fulfillment," the researchers write. "Paper calendar users take a broader, big-picture perspective during planning, which also leads to higher-quality plan development and a greater likelihood of plan fulfillment."
If the planned activity is a single event, mobile calendars are effective because users can set notifications or reminders, the researchers say.
