Paper notes work better for small, in-the-moment things.

For tasks, this might be the plan for the next few days, where everything fits on the same page.

For notes, those might be scribbles to help solve the problem at hand.

Larger and more long term things start benefitting from searchability indeed.

I end up with far more useful notes on digital mediums than paper, unless it's something I need to sketch.
