I have struggled with procrastination all my life. It’s common knowledge that people with ADHD have two concepts of time: Now and Not Now, usually it’s the latter of the two.
I tried to tackle procrastination earlier in the year. While it improved greatly I still found myself struggling to get undesirable takes done.
Usually with any tasks that :
- Don’t interest me
- Mundane / Routine
- Took to many steps or time to complete.
This is one area that medication has worked the best.
Once a task is thrown in front of me I can now do it immediately, regardless if it meets the above criteria. If I am unable to do it immediately for whatever reason, I write it down immediately to be done later or to be delegated out.
