In this episode’s experiment, Kyle & Mark toss their smartphones out the window, and lock their laptops up (well, kinda) and embark on a journey paved on paper paths. The two eliminate their go-to digital task managers and hit the stationary store for some good old fashioned notebooks. Kyle struggles with missing his reminders app, and Mark embraces the paper only lifestyle. Find out if paper is good for you on today’s episode of The Productivity Lab! #StayProductive
