Where’s my ADD ADHD to-do list?
Life with ADHD is a booger, especially without a to-do list.
Your to-do list isn’t guaranteed to make you happy, but if you have ADHD and don’t have a to-do list you’re pretty guaranteed to be unhappy.
Although a to- do list is essential, it’s not very helpful if you don’t know how to use it.
The main key is Five- you can have a long to-do list with a thousand things on it, but your serious working to do- list needs to be limited to five items. Otherwise, you will tend to feel overwhelmed and find it hard to know where to start. So you won’t.
There are many other tips for making the to-do list actually work for you. Maybe more later. I’ll put it on my list.
