The list of five is a crucial strategy. Then we need to pick one.
For many of us coping with ADD or ADHD it is good to make the list and pick one the night before. When we wake up in the morning we don’t have to ask, “What am I going to do today?” We already know. This decreases procrastination, inertia, befuddlement, getting off the track, distracted, and all the slings and arrows (errors?) we are prone to. In a sense, it decreases decision making, at least for when we first wake up. It’s a strategy!
