On not getting things done:
My sister does not have ADD ADHD, but she sure comes up with some good tips. Thanks Lucy.
Here’s her email:
Am trying a new strategy & wonder if it might
be helpful for add/adhd.
“it’s too HOT (personalize the reason)
to do anything, so I’ll get started later”
BUT “if I were going to
do something, where would I start?”
This strategy sometimes leads to the listing stage. It’s best
to list just one “where would I start” at this point.
Does it work? …….you’re getting this email aren’t you?
1. Try to figure out the real reason I’m not doing it
2. Take a break
3. Make a to do list of one .
4. Break it into the smallest possible steps
5. Make a new list of one
6. Start using Lucy’s strategy when necessary
