Time Management Tools

Jump to:

As ADDers we often find ourselves with too much to do and too little time to do it in. We have issues with time in general.

And no, don’t tell us that everyone has the same 24 hours in a day. We won’t believe you. 😉

I found a great website that reviews a number of apps that can help you manage your time more effectively. But first, here are some general tips from me:

Don’t overbook yourself. Most ADD Moms have unrealistic expectations of what they can accomplish in a day or an hour or a week.

Estimate the time it will take and double it. If you finish early, enjoy your success.

Learn to delegate, prioritize and say no. You don’t have to do everything. And things done differently or imperfectly by someone else are still things you didn’t have to do.

Now that you’ve got those mastered, head over to U Do the Rest and check out their reviews of various time saving apps.

I have tried reQall, Toodledo, and Wunderlist. I haven’t stuck with any of them. That’s not so much a negative review of each app but more an indication of how dedicated I was to using them.

Of the list, the two I will definitely try are Routinely and Put Things Off. Doesn’t the name alone appeal to our general outlook on life?

Note: Put Things Off is an app for Apple products; Routinely is for Android.

  1. It’s very excellent to read the paper your posts, this individual. When i could look at your web site every day and then call your blog page to read the paper any newest content pieces, when you finally replace. Keep up to date! I do hope you have a good time.

  2. I must show some thanks to you for rescuing me from such a difficulty. Because of researching throughout the world-wide-web and seeing proposals which were not helpful, I believed my life was over. Living minus the solutions to the difficulties you have resolved as a result of your entire write-up is a crucial case, and those that would have negatively damaged my career if I had not encountered the blog. Your talents and kindness in maneuvering all the stuff was invaluable. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a step like this. It’s possible to at this point look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for the professional and sensible guide. I won’t hesitate to propose the website to any individual who would need guidance on this problem.
