TRANSCRIPT:



00:00:



If you’re an adult with ADHD wanting to manage your time better, you probably tried many tools. I bet you are still struggling to manage your personal professional activities. You need to upgrade your skills first. Before any tool will work well for you.



You’ve tuned into Scattered, Focused, Done – Reimagining Productivity with ADHD, a podcast for ADHD adults like you, who want to learn how to adopt the best strategies, tools, and skills, to be able to get your essential work done in a way that works with the way your brain is wired. I’m Marla Cummins, and I’m glad you decided to join me today on this journey to reimagining productivity, with ADHD. So you can get what is important to you done without trying to do it like everyone else.



Do your days often seem like a struggle with time, feeling the stress of falling behind, wanting more hours in the day, experiencing the overwhelm of the minutes ticking by even on those days, when you start with a plan. And then, when you don’t feel you accomplished enough, do you work long past the time you intended to stop?



01:22:



We all know there are just so many hours in the day. And trying to power your way through each day to get more and more done usually ends up backfiring. That is, rather than getting more done, you end up with diminishing returns. Yet, you may continue the cycle of working because you still think spending more time equals getting more stuff done. Despite all the evidence to the contrary, you continue this way out of habit. You do what you do because, well, that is what you do.



And at the end of those long days, you think to yourself, “I didn’t get anything done. If only I managed my time better… Why can’t I get my stuff done just like everyone else?” Then this thinking might lead you into a shame spiral, further hindering your productivity. So maybe instead of doing your work, you start Googling some variation of ADHD and time management or best apps for time management.
