Time Management and Lateness with ADHD
Develop a Time Sense
Get Out of “ADD-Time!”
Are you tired of making excuses for late appointments and missed deadlines?
This teleclass will provide you tools and solutions developed especially for ADD / ADHD Adults to help with lateness and procrastination that comes from having a poor sense of time.
Learn to Develop a Time Sense
The first challenge most ADDers have is not having a “time sense.” You’re late because you really have no idea how long things take. That affects getting places, finishing projects… just about everything in life! I developed a paper-and-pencil tool, the Time Sense Exercise, especially for my ADHD coaching clients. It’s deceptively simple, and can make an enormous difference in your life. So you won’t be embarrassed by dramatically under-estimating how long things take you.
From There, Create Customized Strategies
Once you improve your time sense, you still may experience chronic lateness due to other ADD traits and tendencies. But you’ll then be ready to identify and work on your behavior patterns in a way that based in reality. Other common lateness-producing traits include:
- inability to plan and prioritize
- trying to fit in “one more thing”
If there are 10 ADD adults in a room who are constantly late, they may have 10 different reasons why they are late. So the strategies and solutions that work for you may be completely different from those that will work for other ADDers.
The focus of this teleclass is to help you pinpoint exactly what difficulties you are having with time, provide a way that you can dramatically improve your time sense, and to suggest solutions that help a number of different kinds of lateness issues.
Further strategies and solutions will be covered in depth, by topic, in other recordings.
