If you like to read/listen to audiobooks, the book How To Keep House While Drowning was life changing for me. The author is so kind and provides so many great tips to overcome executive function. Hope it helps if you read/listen to it

Whenever you dont complete something, or you get distracted and do something else (like taking out the trash but start to clean something else before your done); don't be hard on yourself! So you got distracted? It's okay, you still did a thing! Also; connecting tasks to something else really works (maybe even with visual reminders). For example; I always give my cat some extra special food on Monday. To that I connected watering my plants!

Everything has a place it MUST return to that is not cramped or difficult

I have bursts where I’ll clean a whole room, then avoid cleaning for weeks :/ Cannot do the daily thing

Try wearing something on your feet. Apparently flip flops/slippers/shoes can help attack executive dysfunction real good while cleaning. Helps me a lot!
