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.

The tangible feeling of progress

I’ve been using the analog system for about a year and it’s helped me plan my days, create achievable goals, remind me of tasks I keep forgetting to do and even became part of my wedding planning! Lovely to handle and use, thoughtfully designed and easy to use your own way. Thanks Jeff!

Great Quality

The paper quality is really outstanding – just as the whole product and the idea behind it. Really helps me to structure my tasks and does make them less intimidating ;-)

Brilliantly effective

I have struggled to stay focused on my goals, and I have tried many things, over the years. The Analog is brilliantly effective. Having my daily goals held up in clear view, with the ability to record ongoing progress and make notes on the back, is perfect. It is a thing of beauty, cleanly designed and a pleasure to use. I am accomplishing more, and I am feeling so positive about the process--even the things I do not accomplish. Seeing them moved from one day to the next brings productive questions about why, and a more effective breakdown of the task, on the following card. Bravo. A simple and genius tool.

Thrilled

I’ve had my eye on UgMonk for a long while and finally made the leap. Love the quality and simplicity. I have ADHD, and this keeps me focused on my most important tasks. Never going back to post-its and notebooks for different purposes. These cards are sturdy and the walnut holder is beautiful. As someone else said, even if I don’t check anything off my list, I don’t mind looking at it all day! I wholeheartedly recommend.

HUGE fan!

I am a notorious list maker… and I have been searching for an effective To-Do list system for years and years. I have tried every electronic version of list making out there and I’ve never loved them. I always ended up writing them by hand. The Analog System is deceptively effective. So simple and yet I am getting more done than ever! And the elegance of the design is beyond inspiring. I am 100% sold on the Analog system. I use it everyday.

Great customer service

I received my Card Holder, and the wood had broken off of one side. I emailed support and received a replacement within 3 days. Love the concept and so far, so good. Having a physical reminder in front of me all day keeps me focused on the tasks at hand.

It Works

It’s great for keeping track of the day, a little expensive for the simplicity of it, but I with that being said, I bought a second one for the office. It works and works well, I especially like the back of the notecards for errant thoughts and notes on things that pop up throughout my day.

Practical Productivity System

Finally a productive way to manage a daily checklist of priorities. I used to use a cheap notebook every day at work, full of random notes creating a sea of scattered information and tasks. Analog allows me to properly organize my daily tasks, and makes it a practical application that I find myself excited to use each day. The best part about it, is it faces you while you work creating a focused sense of obligation to your top priorities. As a project manager with many important tasks, I couldn’t recommend Analog enough. I will be using this permanently.

Fabulous

I love this product! I am always looking around for scratch papers and folding copy paper up to little squares and losing them and forgetting what's on my list because I hate doing lists elecronically. This keeps me organized for the day and happy. Even if nothing gets checked off, I'm happy staring at it...love it

This is the way!

I've tried numerous other digital methods and apps with little to no luck. I eventually tried creating my own to-do lists in my sketchbook, but they would eventually get lost in the shuffle. Analog is always next to my computer and helps organize all my tasks. If you're struggling with digital tools, I highly recommend the Analog system. It helps you get your stuff done!

Minimalist Organizer that WORKS

I have used every kind of planner/organizer/app out there and I can honestly say nothing has worked as well as this. At first, I was worried about the limited amount of space on each card but I soon realized that design feature is what makes this tool so great. The design itself makes you prioritize tasks in a more focused, realistic and attainable way. Not to mention, I LOVE being able to leverage different symbols for defining the status of each task. I don’t think I can ever go back after trying Analog.

nitpicks

good experience, but my eyeballs would prefer the cards to be at least one inch larger in each direction. fantastic concept, i would just tailor it to my specific visual cue needs.

Beautiful and expensive, love it

I love being able to write my to-do items for that day on one card, it makes the day seem less overwhelming and keeps my focus on those things that I aim to complete that day, allowing me to close my planner and focus. I also keep a planner and it is helpful to be able to have this for just the day overview and a planner to prepare for the week and keep things on track in the big picture of weeks and months, each has its purpose. I wish this system wasn't so expensive but I think the time and thought that has gone into producing such a high-quality, beautiful and lovely product is worth it. I love that the cards are thick and that there is the dot grid on the back for taking quick notes that can be transcribed to my planner or referenced later if need be, super handy and helpful.

Love It

I ordered the Ugmonk walnut card and pen holders. They are terrific and just what I was hoping. I use them every day, the manual system helps me stay organized in a way I never managed to with Todo apps on my phone. Thank you.
