ADHD at Work
How to complete a task that has been looming for awhile....
Hello to everyone!
One of my greatest struggles at work is completion of tasks. That is not to be confused with doing work because I am a hard worker. However, I struggle to complete tasks in the proper order of priority because I (a) do not feel the pressure to do so (b) simply do not know where to begin and (c) find other tasks or excuses to keep me occupied while I continue to not deal with that task.
For example, I came in to the office today to spend some time cleaning up my desk and to specifically work on a set of tasks that I know I need to accomplish. During the past hour, I managed to get a list going and complete a few e-mails. Yet, I have not managed to make a dent in cleaning off my desk, which is bothering me, and I have not addressed the files that desperately need my attention. Any thoughts on how to help me get motivated? I need something a bit more creative. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you!
