Getting Things Done With Highlighted Lists
"My adhd often overwhelms me. I joke that everyone’s got one to two tabs open in their brains and I’ve got like a million. I found that making a list helped me a ton. I always write what I had to do at the start of the day to everything I need to do before bed. At the end of the day I highlight everything. Green for done. Yellow for in progress and Red for haven't started. Visually seeing the fact I’ve made progress helps me so much. Lists help but highlighting is what made the difference for me. You can also motivate yourself with candy or something you enjoy. ewarding yourself is a great way to get something done short term
