So many ADD ADHD symptoms:
Distractibility, procrastination, impulsivity, blurting out, not finishing, not starting, not understanding time, not managing time, sloppy, uncoordinated, losing things – and what else?
My worst problem:
It’s hard to pick out the one that causes me the most trouble, but I think it’s distractibility, which leads to poor time management.
I find so many things interesting. I have a hard time setting priorities, and so little willpower, that when I’m doing something I’m always darting off onto something else in the middle. I wind up spending time on things that are not important while the important thing slide.
My strategy is to be aware that this is a problem, recognize it and label it when it happens, write the new interest down, and stay on task.
Secondary strategy: Interrupt myself frequently to ask, “Is this the best use of my time?”
Third strategy: Ritalin, in the form of Daytrana, helps me with distractibility.
