Turning “Not Now” into “Now

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. 

I’m hoping that I can keep these habits up.

I was near the end of 2017 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
