With ADD or ADHD we can procrastinate, let things pile up, get behind, and set up a vicious feedback loop as we get demoralized and find it even harder to do anything. And we never know what’s going to pop up unexpectedly. So I try to stay ahead. (Sometimes tho, I’m not sure whether this is a strategy or a symptom?)
I try to do 3 posts here a week, so I try to have some done ahead of time, and not get in a crunch. (today is Tuesday, this is Thursday’s post)
I try to answer comments as soon as I get them (and I do appreciate them)
Stephanie has come up with a plan to set out her clothes and stuff the night before. I do that with my breakfast; it seems welcoming in the morning – a ‘reward’.
I now clean up the dog poop every morning instead of occasionally or even every other day – much easier job, and I feel like I’ve already accomplished something today.
I packed yesterday for my trip today.
In general, when something comes up, I try to do it NOW, instead of adding it to the list for LATER (unless I’m doing something else and it’s a distraction).
