Hello guys, I was wondering if anyone here has tips for „how handling your job as an employee with ADHD?“ do you have tips, hacks etc? Especially when it comes to structure, time management. Thank youuuu

If i have something important to do, this is the first thing i do in the day. Otherwise I’ll just push it in front of me all day, and propably procrastinate not getting anything done at all..

I use Microsoft ToDo on my work computer and it’s paired with my cellphone. I have 3 lists for work: Routine (recurrent tasks), Standard and Fun (usually things I would like to improve to make my work easier). Each morning, I choose three tasks and confirm with my boss if she has anything urgent that would bypass what I planned.

Oh yes sticky notes are a ADHDer’s best friend. Haha. Fr, at work I have a LOT on notes just too keep my brain focused and decluttered, and can look at them later to remember. That way I’m not overwhelming myself and can put my mind at rest knowing, I have a reminder.

Well, I find it very hard to focus on tasks that need to get done in a shift. So for example I work at a liquor store as a shift leader atm. First thing in the morning I make a list of all the things I need to do in the day. This way in won’t forget or miss anything important and I don’t need to worry about someone looking down on me.

I am a developer and what helped me very much were Teams working in the agile framework. Especially the daily stand ups helped me to work to have something to tell and think about what I want/need to do today. All my todo-lists, self made deadlines etc. don‘t have any effect on me when there are no people to hold me responsible and work towards something. For you, maybe getting your targets and responsibilities visible on your desk/screen can help you to not loose track, think about and plot a path towards them.

It really depends on what type of work you do and what simple small tools like the girl above said you can have at work with you.

I’m in management of my team and one thing that really helps me is sticky notes. I have a clipboard I travel around with and I tell my employees that if it can wait or if I’m unable to do it right away, stick a note on my clipboard. That way I have a visual reminder on something I touch frequently throughout the day.
