We with ADD or ADHD can easily get overwhelmed, demoralized, disorganized, unmotivated and just plain stuck.
For the motivation issue, there are many strategies ( I can’t recall which post I just wrote this on, and I’m not motivated to spend time looking for it):
List everything you need to do. Then make a new 3-5 item list of the most important or pressing ones. Then break each one into small steps. Then make a new 3-5 list from those; then make a one item list; then do it.
It may help to make a week calendar and putting one item for each day. People say, ‘But that won’t get it all done in time.’ – no, it may not,but it will get more done than doing nothing, and when you get the one thing done at least you have done something instead of nothing, and that may motivate you to keep going and do some more that day. If so, then you can revise your calendar.
There are many other strategies but these are probably the foremost. Small Steps!
