Do It Now — ADD Tip o the Day 496

This is a follow up on the “ADD ADHD and living 12 hours ahead” post.

If I can do it now, I won’t need to do it then.

There are a lot of strategies related to this:

1. It is amazing how many things you can get accomplished by using little bits of free time, time between doing other things.

2.  So many things can be completed during the time it would take to write them down on the to do list so that you can do them later – just do it.

3. As I get older, I’m surprised how many of the old cliches turn out to be true – “Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. “A stitch in time saves nine.” “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.””Don’t sweat the small stuff.” “I’m busier now than I was before I retired.”

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
