TIPS TO KEEP IT FUN FOR ADDERS

No matter how much you love your work, ADD symptoms can derail you and can turn an awesome situation into a nightmare. I just read an article that listed ways to manage ADD at work. I thought I would put my spin on it, particularly if you LOVE what you do.

As I have written in the past, if you are in happiness in your job, your symptoms get magnified despite hundreds of times over. The results can be disastrous. A minor scrape with a co-worker becomes a full blown issue and creates more unhappiness and havoc on the job. A simple request from a manager can cause resentment and emotional upheaval. Distractions, big or small, become overwhelming and cause procrastination on even the most basic tasks.

Now, assume that you actually enjoy your job and want to continue and manage your typical ADD symptoms that can derail us no matter what our mood, attitude or level of enjoyment on the job.

1. Stop and Think Clarity Before You Speak

Ask questions to understand your assignment fully. Repeat directions that you are given to make sure you have heard them correctly. Ask for specific deadlines so you know that what is being asked is really doable. If not, address the issue immediately. Do not wait until it is too late and you are forced to bring work home. If you are a manager, remember to let the person / employee know you have a request or project and find out what his / her priorities are. Say exactly when you expect the task to be completed (a time frame helps).

3. Quick Calls v. Sharing your Story

Are not phone conversations the easiest way to procrastinate? Just get us started, right? Give yourself a time boundary like five minutes – seven tops. Let your caller or who you call know that you just want to touch bases. They will understand and know – now it is important for YOU to stick with that. It may take a few times to get the hang of it.

4. Time Management Confusion – One Method at a Time

Keep this one very very simple. By using only ONE system for work and home, it keeps confusion to a minimum. I use my Google Calendar that automatically adds appointments in my iPhone email. Some people do better with physical calendars. If you are so inclined, use that! The one thing I have that saves me every time is a hook for my keys. It might be time to add a few more hooks for other things.

5. The D Word – Delegation

Perfectionists beware. This may take a while to get the hang of. Let others do some of …
