I was cleaning up my pc and found this article I had saved. Thought it might be of interest. It was published in January of this year.

I think that the link would be a better fit in a different category, such as:

or

Always good to have tips though, which I suppose is the value of such a link.
I'd rather read a book review or know your thoughts on the book though. ;)
There are so many options out there!

Skimming through the link, it looks like an NTs view.

I have seen some great books on organizing with adhd that actually including understanding us a bit. The adhd way to organize yiur life might lol work.

First of all, the assumption that if fir example my desk is a mess, i cant focus on say work is untrue. My desk is a mess because all i care about is tge work. The need to clean the desk is to keep hyper sensitive coworkers off my back.

In terms of organizing, the main problem i have is complexity. I dont have a workable brain deadly simple system. I also have a sense that other things are more important than whatever i have to clean.

What i am using at work is, given my anally retentive supervisor is, nothing in my office. This is needed because he exagerates whstever is out of place.
