ADD Resources has fifty tips on management and organization of your ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder). I read through the lists, and some of the tips are applicable to procrastination as well, such as:
- Make deadlines.
- Break down large tasks into small ones. Attach deadlines to the small parts. Then, like magic, the large task will get done. This is one of the simplest and most powerful of all structuring devices. Often a large task will feel overwhelming to the person with ADHD. The mere thought of trying to perform the task makes one turn away. On the other hand, if the large task is broken down into small parts, each component may feel quite manageable.
- Read with a pen in hand, not only for marginal notes or underlining, but for the inevitable cascade of “other” thoughts that will occur to you.
