It’s very common for people with Attention Deficit Disorder to not really know how long it takes to complete tasks or projects. More often then not we underestimate how long it will take to do things. This can lead to problems like not being able to finish something on time or being late for appointments.
Something that has been helpful for many of my ADD Coaching clients and myself is to actually keep track of how long it takes to do things. Something as simple as setting a timer at the beginning of an activity and writing down how it took to complete has an amazing impact. Knowing how long it really takes to do something really can help when it comes to actually planning time to complete projects and tasks.
Has keeping track of how long things take been helpful to you?
