You’d know this if you were in the ADHD Success Club. But, that aside, you can still get better at getting stuff done.
An Easy ADHD Time Management Trick
What you need, my friend, is clarity. Often our ADHD minds are filled with such chaos and distraction, we have the clarity of a mud puddle. Without clarity, we can’t focus.
How do you get clarity so you can get stuff done?
Try this easy ADHD time management trick next time you notice you’re not getting what you need to do done.
Ask yourself: “What’s my next small step?
Yes, shifting from confusion to clarity can be that simple.
Improving Your Time Management
Here’s why thinking about next small steps improves ADHD time management:

- Focus lets you know what to do next,
- Knowing what to do next means you’re more likely to act.
What happens if clarity doesn’t boost your productivity? Then something else is going on, and you’ll need to dig deeper. Figure out what’s up. Disorganization? Out of control symptoms? Distractions?
Don’t give up. Don’t get discouraged.
You CAN live easier with ADHD. It will take time, symptom control, and new skills. But, you can do this! In the meantime, I hope this simple ADHD time management trick helps you break the log jam so you can get stuff done.
