People with Attention Deficit Disorder quite often over commit themselves. There are different reasons why those of us with Attention Deficit Disorder make too many commitments. Quite often we have trouble saying no and impulsively say yes to things with out really thinking them through. In addition to that we may not really pay attention to the number of commitments that we already have and what’s actually involved in them.
Setting aside some time to make a list of current commitments and then go through what each of them really means can be quite helpful. From there the next step is to prioritize those commitments. A couple of things to look at are how important each commitment is and what would happen if you let each commitment go. Prioritizing can often be a challenge for people with Attention Deficit Disorder and this is something that an ADD Coach can help support a client with.
