So many people overcomplicate their task management.
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
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.
