So, this week, we said goodbye to 2018 and said hello to 2019. It is the time when many may find themselves making resolution. Make plans for the year. Set goals that they want to accomplish.
Now, for anyone with ADHD/ADD, it can be easy to set some goals and make some resolutions. However, it is difficult to stick to them. I’m not sure about you guys, but I don’t remember many that I have made and been able to accomplish. After a while, I kind of lose motivation. That is, if I remember it at all. Like many ADHDers/ADDers, I struggle to finish things.
But you know what? I want this to change. I want it to be different this year.
You know why? Because there are some things that I do want to work on. There are some things that I want to accomplish this year, and I really want to be able to accomplish them by the end of the year.
I want to be able to work on my finances, for instance. I don’t want to struggle month to month. I want to be able to work consistently. This is just one thing that I would like to work on.
And yes, it is easy for me to say now, as I am motivated to make the changes. Knowing my ADHD brain, it may not last.
Although I may not know how I’ll make sure to stay on track, I still want to try. I want to try and accomplish some goals that I have set out. Somehow I will find a way to make it work.
As much as it may be challenging to follow through, I do believe that we ADHDers/ADDers can follow through and accomplish some resolutions or goals or whatever it is we want to do. It might mean that we need to work harder or do things differently, but we can still do it. We just need to find a way that works best for us.
Whether or not you have ADHD/ADD, you can achieve the goals and/or resolutions that you have this year. It may take some work, but it is still possible.

I think your resolutions are both awesome and brave.
I don’t have ADHD (well they suspect ADD as a comorbid to my autism but nothing diagnosed/confirmed) – but the autism can cause some struggles with the executive functioning.
I organize pretty madly and I found this to actually help – because I am adamant at keeping appointments so I make appointments and contracts with myself to counteract the exec. dysfunction.
I don’t know ADHD first hand but I was wondering if there were some strength or quirk you had that you could take advantage of to reach your goals ?
I wish you the best of luck. Nothing makes me happier than people achieving what was officially deemed impossible. Because I agree – we no matter diagnosis are capable of a lot more than we are given credit for. ❤️
I’m glad that you want to manage your autism and make sure things get done.
For me, I’ve started writing things down and make to do lists. So that helps. Now I’m just trying to find a good way to keep track of my goals and progress. So, this is one thing that I am going to try this year.
I wish you the best of luck. I’m sure you will achieve your goals this year.
