Not sure if this will help but I found an article when searching for something to help me. This does not come from an ADHD resource but from general information out on the www.
How to Prioritize Work When Everything Is # 1
1. Collect a list of all your tasks.
(The first challenge)
2. Identify urgent vs. important.
(What must get accomplished versus what most likely should be accomplished)
3. Assess value.
(OK, So maybe it is urgent or maybe important . . . but that is in the eye of the beholder. What will the impact be, how valuable will accomplishing the task be?)
4. Order tasks by estimated effort.
(Will it require a lot of time? A lot of effort? Should I get the big things out of the way first? Or all else being equal should I complete something that would take a lot of time and allow me to move on to the next task)?
5. Be flexible and adaptable.
(Flexible? Adaptable? I don’t know about you but if you are like me here are two big challenges!)
6. Know when to cut.
(know when to “fold them“! In other words, take some things off the list as seems appropriate based upon these or some other set of logical criteria. A list too long may be too intimidating, gets “lost”, Or not productive)!
Don’t know if any of this helps, but theoretically it seemed that it might hold some potential benefit for those of us brains intimidated and sometimes frozen in place by tasks before us.
Good Luck to you . . .
