Learn why Analog works

A companion for your digital tools

Analog doesn't replace your digital tools, it works alongside them. Working out of your inbox puts you on defense all day. Analog helps you focus on your most important work to move them close to your goals.

Analog divides tasks into 3 cards

Today

At the beginning of each day, write up to 10 tasks on a Today card.

Use Task Signals to mark each task as completed, delegated, or in progress

Carry over unfinished tasks on a new Today card, or move some of them to a Next or Someday card.

Today

Next

Record important tasks that need to be done later. Use this list to help you fill out your Today card.

Someday

Analog is my perfect desktop companion. I can use it for digital tasks, but it lives where I have constant and easy access to it, beside my keyboard.

Less is more. Above all the to-do lists apps and task boards, a simple Analog card on my desk every day keeps me more focused than any of the more complex tools I've tried.

What I love even more than the simplicity, is the built-in archival nature of the cards. There's something special about seeing a stack of cards that represents a whole week – or a whole year! – worth of work and progress.

As someone that can spend more time messing with my to do list app than actually doing things, Analog is great because it helps me focus. I also really like the dot grid on the back for sketching quick ideas.

Analog FAQ

What’s the key to making Analog work?

Analog is all about building the daily habit. You’ll quickly realize the power of how starting with Analog each day helps you focus and get real work done.

Is Analog also an app?

No. Analog is works alongside digital apps but is currently only a paper based tool.

What are the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner for?

Use these dots to rate how productive you are each day. For example, if you complete your entire card, fill in all 3 dots. Or you can also use the Card Signal to tie related projects together. All “work” projects might get two dots. And all “home” projects get one dot.

What if I have more than 10 things to do Today?

Analog forces you to prioritize and set realistic expectations. We all think we can get more done in a day than we actually can. If you somehow do complete all 10 tasks, fill out another Today card.

How do I capture tasks while on the go?

Analog is made to be portable and come with you wherever you go with the Travel Case But when you don’t have an Analog card with you, use a reminder app on your phone to capture an idea and then transfer to your card later.

How do I link cards together for specific projects?

Use the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner to link cards together. Another way to link cards is by adding a title on the line in the upper right hand corner.

Where do I put the complete cards?

Completed cards can be slid under the bottom of the stack of cards in the wood holder or discarded (the cards are fully recyclable).

Where do the Next and Someday Cards go?

Keep your Next and Someday Cards on top of the magnetic divider to keep them out of sight but always within reach for when you need to jot something down.

I still can't seem to get everything done on my Today card. How do I decide what goes on my Today card?

Don’t feel the need to fill up all 10 lines each day. Start small and only write the absolute most important 2 or 3 tasks each day. As you complete those primary tasks, continue adding a couple more tasks.

When do I start a new Next or Someday card?

This is totally up to you. I find it helpful to start a new card when over 50% of the tasks are complete and I want more free space to add new tasks.

Can I pause the subscription?

Yes. The Analog Subscription is billed quarterly and you may pause or cancel at any time.

Giving it a try!

Heard about this product on the “Focused” podcast and decided giving it try. So far it’s been a great way to capture the “Must do” items for the day and have them ever-present in my vision as I go through the day. I’m still using an app-based task system for collection, but it’s good to have a way to focus on the top tasks. The product itself is solid and well crafted and a nice addition to my desktop!

Shipping Problem Help

I haven’t had much time to work with this yet, but everything is great quality. Their customer service is excellent. I had a problem with FedEx taking an inordinate amount of time to deliver, and at one point the package had been “in transit” for 4 days after wandering around the midwest for a week. They reshipped the package to me. Of course, a couple of days later it showed up on my doorstep. Ugmonk sent me a prepaid return label to return the 2nd shipment when it arrived. Thanks, Ugmonk!

great desk item idea

i like the product. i've paired this with the 3x5 cards from rocketbook. it would be nice if the item had either a hole or a ledge on the side to accommodate a pen. my use is for team members and users to leave me a note with some detail that is larger than a post-it and is reusable. it would also be nice if the metal cover had a magnetic clip to help hold a card in place when writing.

I am in LOVE!

I have tried every app, dayplanner, system I could fin and always ended with 1500 notes scribbled on paper that get piled up and lost. This is the first time I am accually keeping a to-do list that I can propperly check things off, off. It's also so beautiful that I can't stop showing it off. Thank you so much for creating this simple but effective product.

Stand up card is a great idea

Product is well thought out and implemented. Storage and retrieval of cards is quick and easy. The key design feature though is having today’s card standing up. it keeps it right in front of you and top of mind. 3x5 cards are good quality paper but quite pricey; especially as an on-going expense ($120-$139 /yr). You could use vertically printed 3x5 cards purchased elsewhere for far less. The holder is worth the money for the clever design.
