Train Your Brain

Can’t find your keys, noodling around on Facebook, procrastinating before a big project -- these are classic time wasters that keep us from finishing what needs to be done, and they happen to most of us from time to time. People who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) struggle with these time wasters more often, says Ari Tuckman, PsyD, author of Understand Your Brain, Get More Done: The ADHD Executive Functions Workbook (Specialty Press). Whether you have ADHD or not, these tips will help you manage your time better, get organized and pay more attention. No single strategy works for everyone, so pick the tips that most appeal to you and see if you can turn them into daily habits.
