Some days are hard. I feel overloaded, not at my best, disorganized, and I can’t get started. That’s all part of ADD or ADHD, and we need strategies.
1. if I have more than 5 things on my list of 5 (red card) – and I confess, sometimes I do (a mistake), then I will number them, 1-5, or even 1-3.
2. If that doesn’t do it, I will make a list of one. Take an envelope and write one task on it, and put it in the middle of my desk.
3. If that doesn’t do it, then I will give up. Sometimes giving up is a good strategy. So I just pray to make it through the day, not trying to accomplish anything else. And I will use self talk- “Just make it thru the day.” – “One foot in front of the other.” – “You can only do what you can do.”
Sometimes things go pretty well then.
Some days are just like that.
Fortunately not too many tho.
