So many people overcomplicate their task management.

Stop it.

ADHD makes us want some shiny new thing to help us become more productive. The reality is that these "anti-descrations" just become new distractions.

You don't need a complicated todo list or shiny new task management software. You're going to forget to use it, and it's going to make you frustrated.

If you need to make a checklist, make ONE checklist.

If you need to use an app, use ONE app.

Don't try to assemble a complex structure to solve your focus problems. Focus means doing one thing at a time. So try that.

Here are the top checklist apps for people with ADHD:

  • The default notes app on your phone
  • A scrap piece of paper
  • The most basic text editor you can find

THAT'S IT.

Don't overcomplicate it.

You don't need a shiny new app. You don't need a Notion "system" with a thousand different features and processes. You just need one thing, and that's a simple checklist.

Keep it simple. Keep it focused.
