So, last week, I was talking about some goals for 2019. Like so many, if I want to achieve those goals, I should probably start planning. Yes, planning. A word that many ADHDers/ADDers do somewhat dread. And yes, I do include myself. I don’t always look forward to planning things and I’m not really good at it.
So, as much as it’s not my strong suit (ADHD do struggle to stick with goals and plan and such), and I’m always sure where to start, I should start planning for those goals. I do have to start somewhere and try my best.
I think the first thing is to write them down. I have written down a few main goals, and below each one specified a few things that I want to work on within those main goals. For instance, I do want to work on my finances, which is the main goal. Then I’ve specified that I want to save and work on getting debt free, just to name a few.
This is just the beginning. There is more work that I need to put into setting my goals and making sure that I am continuously working on them and improving. This is an ongoing process for me.
I know there are several ways to set your goals, keep track, and make sure that you stay on top of them.
There are a lot of resources out there that can help us with goals and anything that may help us stay on top of this. Whether we have ADHD/ADD or not, we can find something to help us.
I have started working on my own to set my goals and work on them. And I am working on looking at other resources as well, as I do want to make sure that I achieve my goals. If not all, at least some of them.
Point is, there are a lot of ways of being able to set goals, keep track, and such. For me, writing it down helps. It’s perhaps what I would suggest, but I also know that it isn’t for everyone. The important thing is to find a way that works best for you. That is the important thing.
Best of luck to you. I hope that we can all achieve our goals.
