I think the best nugget of knowledge I ever got about living with ADHD was from my first ADHD coach. He told me that for so many of the executive functioning issues ADHD creates, there are external systems to make up for it. Alarms and other forms of reminders, routines, visual maps, post-it notes, putting stuff you don’t want to forget in front of the door so you see on your way out, outside accountability, apps, using open and simple organization, timers, online grocery shopping with lists you save, etc., etc., etc.
There are so many unique routes you can create to better study, adult, and overall function that can take the burden off your brain.
It’s all about identifying where your brain is getting hung up and creating (and tweaking until you get it right) a system that works for you. It might not look like the way “everyone” else does it, but the point is you’re able to do it.
