Pingback: An ADHD Christmas — ADHD Tip O the Day 841 | ADDadultstrategies
I have a very difficult time with managing my time…ex: arriving to appointments on time and managing my time. I am also not good at trying to figure out how much time I need to complete certain tasks. I also have the bad habit of trying to remember my appointment times and get too lazy to write them on my calendar. I wonder if I like the adrenalin rush of trying to get somewhere on time when I am running late. If I have to be somewhere I really want to be, I will be more likely to arrive there on time. I agree with you about finding a good mate. My husband is amazing and very understanding of my ADD. If he wasn’t, my life would be a disaster. He jokes around about my ADD, and it makes my life so much easier.
chica, congratulations on picking a good husband, that’s not easy to do!
sounds like ADD – the plan is to pick which problem bothers you the most (or two), name as specifically as possible, and then make a strategy.
for ex, mite be the not writing appts down. (you are not going to remember them) if that calendar isnt working for you, try a different plan. then the next step would be to make a habit of checking it several times daily.
thank you for your understanding and support. you might want to pick just one planner to use, and then make a habit of checking it 5 times a day (or more, or less, you could use mealtimes as an anchor for example). at least thats what i need to do with my appointment book, or else I’m lost in time.
best wishes and thank you for commenting
I know exactly what you mean. Christmas has seemed so far away and now it’s almost here. I do have the gifts all purchased but not wrapped. It’s Christmas dinner’s menu that I need to get going on. I need to go to the grocery store tomorrow and I don’t have my list made. I wish I’d been doing this all along but I thought I had more time.
I did better in the past when I used my planner more faithfully. But I’ve been doing this planner dance (between 3 different sizes and styles) and one of the biggest problems I’ve noticed is that I don’t know what day it is. I’ve lost my concept of time.
I took your advice and put a couple of wall calendars up in strategic places. I won’t probably write anything on them – they’re just to help me know what day it is and what’s coming up.
