This week’s ADHD Challenge


Making Decisions

Decision-making is a process of reaching a conclusion after careful consideration; it is a judgment, a choice between alternatives when all the facts can’t be fully known.
People with ADHD tend towards indecision. Telling someone with ADHD to just do it would be like saying cheer up to a clinically depressed person.
Decision-making is a key skill you must develop to succeed in life. It is a major task of executive function that you can learn and put structure and templates in place to help you through the process.


“The decision is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the decision. Got it?” — Jim Livingstone



  • Remember that no decision is guaranteed to be perfect.
  • Focus on one important decision at a time.
  • Consider the potential impact on various areas of your life.
  • Consider both short-term and long-term effects on yourself and significant others.
  • Make choices that produce the outcomes you want.
  • Design a simple decision-making process or guidelines.
  • Don’t get stuck in a never-ending cycle of analysis.
  • Choose the simplest solution.
  • Take the first step towards your decision.

Weekly Tip

Positive Tips.

Allow yourself regular mini rewards throughout the day.

Short breaks can help you recharge and maintain focus.

Use these breaks to engage in activities you enjoy that help you relax and clear your mind, such as going for a walk, deep breathing exercises, or listening to calming music.

Establish a daily schedule that includes specific time blocks for different activities, such as work, study, exercise, and leisure.

Having a structured schedule can help you stay on track and reduce the chances of getting distracted or overwhelmed.
