148: Productivity Q&A Nov 30, 2016

Nisha Subramanian joins me in answering questions in this session.  We cover a plethora of topics that people with ADHD face.  We discuss time-blocking, goal organization, starting projects, time management and much more.

You’ll Learn:

  • [04:42] – During registration, a question on how to combat paralysis and overwhelm when starting something was asked.  We discuss some tips and strategies.

  • [08:03] – Another person asks how to recover and not feel like the entire day is ruined when something goes wrong in the morning.

  • [14:50] – Jane asks for advice on organizing goals and tasks of various size and importance.

  • [20:17] – Lisa asks for advice on email management. This is something I’m currently working on, but I share some strategies that have worked for me in the past.

  • [29:02] – Jessica jumps into the Q&A to ask a question about strategies for recognizing that you’re on autopilot.  This leads to Jessica not realizing she didn’t do something until it’s too late to complete that task.

  • [38:36] – Nisha asks me to share any takeaways from my recent time management presentation at the CHADD Conference that people could implement in their daily lives.

  • [48:35] – Amy wonders if time-blocking is even possible. I explain my time-blocking strategies.

  • [57:19] – Jeff asks about perseveration and how to stop doing it.

  • [1:04:40] – With questions wrapping up, some participants join the call for a little chit-chat session. Becky is a graduate student and recently discovered this podcast.  Becky is struggling with the way her graduate program is structured and we discuss techniques she can implement.

  • [1:18:17] – Kim joins the call and we discuss his appearance on this podcast. This leads to a conversation about the ADHD reWired Coaching and Accountability group.
