ADHD at Work

I need help organizing and prioritizing
Keywords:


I’m an administrative and I need help. I take care of pretty much everything at work. I’m the go-to person. We have Outlook 2010 at work and although it should be a good tool to organize tasks and requests I’m having problems keeping track and following up. I’ve tried Outlook, notebooks, planners, desk calendar, wall calendars, post-its, binders with pockets,.... I have so much to do and can’t remember to follow up on things or keep track of them. What has worked for you? Any suggestions?

hi lost&confused;!

There’s a great section of articles on Succeeding at Work when you have ADHD, over on ADDitudeMag.com: http://www.additudemag.com/topic/adult-add-adhd/career-job-help.html. I think you’ll find many of these articles helpful.

Hi I had to same problem. I honestly believe it comes to motivating yourself. When i send out an email i cc myself…if you have outlook you can flag it and set a reminder so that your reminded if you havent heard anything back about setting up a meeting etc.. or if you need to do something specific for that email. I’m still trying to figure the other things out. Also there are a lot of apps out there, however, I personally like to write things down, so they don’t work for me. Good luck
