Is packing for a trip kind of a standing joke for those of us with ADD or ADHD? Has your significant other learned to ask, ” Did you pack this? Did your remember that?” Do you tend to find that kind of help kind of annoying, especially since you realize that you need it?
We were leaving early Friday. I planned to pack Wednesday, a day ahead as I always do. This is the strategy. But it turned out there were things we wanted to do Wednesday evening, and I worked Thursday, so I didn’t pack til late Thursday night, and we left early Friday.
Even so, I only forgot three significant important things.
Won’t do that again. The strategy is to pack the day ahead, which gives me time to think of things I’ll need and to check if I have everything. Stick to it.
(At least I didn’t forget the ritalin, or I might not have been able to do this post!)
Bryan’s new book on how to be happy, Happy Every Day. Very applicable to ADD or ADHD and uses some similar strategies. Need to look at one piece every day. clik
