Managing ADHD can be hard, and getting important tasks done on time might feel like a never ending, uphill battle. Part of managing ADHD is accepting our limitations and being a bit kinder to ourselves; nonetheless, being kinder to ourselves won't necessarily get the laundry done, pick up the kids from school, or finish that project we're procrastinating on. Incorporating tools like a daily productivity planner can be helpful in managing bigger and/or important tasks.

Step 1: Write today's date


Step 2: Create a "To-Do List"


Step 3: Write a positive affirmation for the day


Step 4: Prioritize

Out of all of the tasks you have listed, what are the 3 most important tasks? Use the chart below to plan your 3 “main tasks”, break down each task to smaller parts, then mark when each step is complete.



Taking some time to get curious about our experience, in a non-judgmental way, can be helpful in building up our ability to manage our daily tasks. Use the questions below to explore.

  • How many tasks did I complete today?
  • What was the total time I spent on each task?
  • How will I reward myself for the tasks I completed?
  • Is there anything I can do differently tomorrow?
