1. Find out exactly when dates of things are and write them down so I don't have to assume later.
2. Set deadlines a week earlier and pretend that's when everything is due.
3. Buy and use leave-in conditioner so I don't take as long in the shower.
4. Register at the FlyLady site.
(will come up with more as I think of them)

5. Pretend my computer is a bomb about to go off and shut it down so I can get other things done.
6. When in a conversation, the first time I think to myself, "I need to get going to class or wherever," actually wrap the convo up and leave. (important)
(oh, and whoever wishes to add any of their own personal goals to this, please feel free to do so)
What about trying to find a peer coaching buddy?
As a first born, stubborn, Adult with ADD, who thinks she can do everything herself...I can tell you from experience that getting outside support from somebody who can act as a coach or "add buddy" is probably one of the most important things you can do.
Yes Tara, this has been my experience too. Aside from being first born and stuborn, I also would not want to be without a coach.

7. Stop avoiding stuff, especially if it's painful. Think of it as getting a shot at the doctor's office - don't drag it out. The sooner you do it and get it over with, the better.

Yeah, I have one of those...I try to maintain it because that makes it a whole lot easier. I've gotten better about writing down my routine for the day, the night before, in it. The only thing is, I feel frustrated when things don't always go according to plan because I feel like it's somehow MY fault, even though it isn't always...Hahaha guilt complex. Oh yeah and I go to the University of South Carolina, my major is advertising...

8. Stop setting up my own traps and then falling right into them - write about past scenarios where this has happened in order to pinpoint my own past actions that led to my downfall. Make a list of what I learned from these stories.
