ADD, ADHD and Executive Functioning Tip…Setting Up a Plan

One of the biggest challenges for an individual with ADD, ADHD and Executive Functioning is setting up a plan of action. It’s difficult because it’s hard to look at the end result without seeing an overwhelming experience. Think of it like looking at the steak without a knife.

To begin the process, figure out the steps involved in the end result. Sounds easy, but it isn’t as easy as it sounds. I’d suggest writing down a few ideas. Getting something down on paper is the best place to start. Personally, I use an iPad and create a flowchart of ideas. It helps me see the bigger picture as well as identify steps that may be missing in my plan of action.
