Time part 2 —– ADD Tip o the day 57

I am usually early for appointments, because I estimate how long it will take me to get there, add 20%, figure out what time I need to leave the house, and then decide to leave 5 to 10 minutes earlier than that.  That leaves time for me to make a wrong turn, or to call my wife and ask for help with directions, or even to go back and pick up the thing I forgot to bring.  Since those things don’t happen too often (“too often” is a subjective judgement), I am usually early.  I always take a book or something else to do while I am waiting.

I rarely forget an appointment because they all go in my appointment book which is always in my pocket and which I check several times a day.  On the rare occasions I miss one it is just as likely because I got confused about what day today is as because I forgot it. 

On the other hand, I am usually late for meetings.  More on that later.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
