My ADD ADHD Problem: Stalled, Stuck, and Overwhelmed — ADD Tip o the Day 531

Stuck

Since I changed my schedule I haven’t been able to get reorganized yet.                       My to do list is way too long, and I’m blocked and stuck.

Strategy

I plan to use a favorite strategy, take a used envelope and  write a calendar on the back. Then I’ll put one of those tasks for each day and I will get that done. If I get more than one done, I’ll rewrite the calendar and adjust. That would be nice.

Result
Surprise, surprise!

Once I decided to do this, the block evaporated and I just did the first task without actually making the calendar.

Question
Do you think that my ADD realized what I was going to do and just gave up?
