“Lists don’t work for me!”
Some people with ADD ADHD have told me that to do lists don’t work for them. That may be so, because we are each unique, but my guess is they aren’t using them properly. Then they won’t work.
Here are a few tips on lists, but then I suggest you read Pete Quily’s whole post on the subject. Lots of details.
A Few Tips:
1. One list, where you can always reach it -cards in my pocket, i Phone, purse, whatever
2. Short – 5 items max. You can make another longer list, move items off it to the short list
3. Check it 5 times a day.
4. Make sure you have “small steps“, not a project. You can keep another project list.
(My favorite example: “1. find the cancelled checks” not “1. do the taxes“)
5. Some days I need to make a list of one and work from that. Some days are like that.
Request # 2:
