One of the biggest challenge for adults with ADHD, is prioritizing tasks, and sticking to a schedule.  Symptoms of the condition—like trouble paying attention, forgetfulness, and chronic procrastination—can make it hard for you to effectively manage your time.

By incorporating some of the following tips into your everyday life, you can develop timemanagement strategies:

  • Break things down. Reduce projects that seem overwhelming into smaller, simpler tasks. Then do them in order, step by step.
  • Use a day planner. Write down your daily goals. Keep it with you so you can refer to it when needed and check things off when finished.
  • Set routines. Get small tasks, like paying bills or checking mail, out of the way first. This can keep them from becoming bigger tasks.
  • Setting priorities is key. When you write down your tasks for the day, rank them numerically to remind yourself which ones should be completed first.
  • Don't overload. Be realistic about how long it takes to complete tasks and how much work you can take on.
  • Use a timer. Set your cell phone or computer to remind you when it's time to move on to your next task.
  • Set aside a time for phone calls and e-mail. You'll eliminate two major distractions if you have an appointed time to return calls and messages.
