What areas in your life are you having trouble with?
Right now a lot of my areas center around my desk and my computer.
The account I keep meaning to cancel. The stuff I keep meaning to check on. Writing my blogs and my newsletter.
I was thinking about all of that today and why I was suddenly so behind in that area and I finally realized that it was my desk.
Next to my desk is the container that stores gift wrapping supplies. You know – like Christmas gifts? On top of it is a blank journal someone gave me, a package of printer paper, and some toilet paper. (We have a 3 month old puppy; she gets into stuff. Apparently recently it was toilet paper.)
There are stacks of papers and electronics on my desk, including the binoculars my son left there because he was looking out my window at a hawk perched in a tree.
I have books and notebooks all around and there are some days when I even have stuff on my chair.
How do I possibly expect to get any work done in that environment?
What about you? Where is your trouble zone?
Having trouble keeping the kitchen clean? What do your counters and tables look like? And what about the inside of the fridge?
Having trouble keeping up with the laundry? Take a look at the state of your laundry room and maybe your closets too.
Those of us with ADHD are really good at getting in our own way.
Now you have a tool to help you see where the trouble is. You just have to remember to use it.
