Puryear’s principles of human nature (this is number two or three or something)
We struggle with a problem until we find something that works. Then we quit doing it. Or we screw it up.
That’s what I did.
I got off structure on vacation. When I got back, I tried to put my Daily Priority Strategy back into effect but I’ve been having trouble doing it. It was working before vacation. I’ve just realized I screwed it up by putting too many things in each day.
The strategy is to have ONE priority each day and get that done before anything else. Then if I do nothing else, at least I’ll have that done, and by the end of the week I will have done something in each major categories.
But, if I choose too many “priorities”, then they aren’t priorities at all.
ADD ADHD Problems
There’s too many things I want to do.
I have trouble setting priorities.
When a strategy is working, I often quit using it or screw it up.
Do you see where this is going?
I made a new schedule and tried to put only one thing in each day. As you see, I only partly succeeded, but it’s an improvement, and I can rationalize why I have two on some days. (But it’s still a mistake. Oh, well.)
Now if I can just stick to it! The rule is that the priority(s) of the day gets done before I can do anything else. (Frank commented that the problem is that we don’t keep commitments to ourselves – he’s onto something there.)
Experiment O the Day
I’m trying to learn about hashtags, but I don’t understand them.
Do I just put #ADD # ADHD #adultADD anywhere, like this?
And that does something???? Advice is welcomed.
