Those with ADHD struggle to prioritise tasks. If that's you, try dividing tasks according to urgency and importance by using a grid.

For the columns, write "important" and "not important". For the rows, use "urgent, and "not urgent".

For example, phoning the doctor because you are sick is both important and urgent, but checking your Facebook is not urgent and not important.
