How Many Items Are On Your Ta-Da List?

NamelogoI was reading about these & think they might be quite helpful...the great thing is that you can share your lists with someone else, which is great for accountability.  Definitely worth checking out for those ADDers who are online a lot of the time & who like electronic (rather than paper based) systems - also the service is FREE!   Perhaps some of my clients might like to try this out & share their lists with me!

So, what do you think? worth a try?

Are you Procrastinating This Week?

Procrastination Did you know it is National Procrastination Week?....the week where the intention is to give ourselves permission to procrastinate & do nothing! Could this be happening to you much of the time by any chance? If you have ADHD it's quite likely that procrastination is a habit easily fallen into. It's something my individual coaching clients frequently need help with & which we work on together. Team work can make all the difference!
I think it's something we all do at times & for various reasons...sometimes it's to avoid something unpleasant, difficult or challenging. Other reasons can be not knowing where (or how) to start, or it can be an element of perfectionism.
Anyway, keep reading for some tips to get you going on your procrastination demons.......

Fun & Games on a Monday Morning!

Suffolk_1I was interviewed on BBC Radio Suffolk this morning about Adult ADHD. It was only a short item on Nick Pandolfi's show, but hopefully it raised more awareness & discussion. On searching the website it seems it can't be listened to online later.  I've noticed that there's more media interest in the adult side of things nowadays........  but why do people so often think ADHD's mainly about behaviour?

In my experience with the adults who come to me for coaching, it's much more about disorganisation, procrastination, time & task management. What do you think?  What's your biggest problem related to ADHD?  I'd love to hear from you.......why not post a comment about your biggest challenge with ADHD.

ADD Planner Experiment!

Disorganized_1I've heard that ADD Planner software is a great tool for people with ADHD to help them keep on track. It does more than MS Outlook, & even integrates with a PDA.  First impressions are very positive, as with any new software, i'm spending some time learning how all the features work.

I'm test driving it myself at the moment so i'll report back on how my experiment goes!  I never recommend anything unless I have personally tried it/read the book!  One feature of ADD Planner is a system whereby you can set a pop up to appear on your screen at regular intervals asking if you are on task!! very annoying but a good idea I think for checking in that we are doing what we are supposed to be doing! Great for those of us who spend too much time on the internet....!
