We all have systems in place for getting things done. Some of our systems work better for us than others. Sometimes a system that once worked well doesn’t really work anymore. This is why it important from time to time to re-evaluate our systems. We need to find out what parts of the system are working and what parts of the system aren’t working for us.
For the past several years I have been adding personal ADD Stories to my Living with ADD website. I had a basic system in place that helped me get the ADD Stories people submitted posted on the site. For several years this system worked pretty well for me. Today I noticed that it had been quite a while since I had posted an ADD Story.
My initial reaction was to get down on myself for not getting the ADD Stories up. Then I stopped to look at the system I had in place and see why it wasn’t working. One of the main reasons it was working for when I first started using it was because it was the main thing I was doing in relationship to ADD and my websites. It was my main priority back then. Since I first set up my system I have added a lot more ADD related website responsibilties.
Since my commitments have changed it’s time my system changes too. Right now I am in the process looking my current system to see what parts of it do still support me and what parts of it I need to change to support me better.
Has re-evaluating your systems supported you?
