If you have ADHD, time is a booger.
- We underestimate how long a task will take. It always takes longer. And if its fixing or maintenance, it’ll take at least two trips to the hardware store.
Strategy: Estimate the time and add fifty per cent. I can’t find my link to the great post on this. How long will this take to do?
2. We’re late for appointments and meetings (when we arrive at all.)
Strategy: Set at time to go and don’t do anything else after that. Set a time to get ready thirty minutes before the time to go. Getting ready.
3. We think events are further off than they are, so we’re late on getting presents, tickets, reservations, etc.
Strategy: Have multiple calendars and a red sharpie. Do it Way Early. It’s when ?!?
Poem O the Day:
I get very very sleepy at night
Until I lay down and turn out the light.
