As an ADHD student is has always been hard to set a goal and remember to accomplish it within a designated time frame. my source of goals have always came from a level of aspiration, what i desire for myself in life or things that would give me a sense of fulfillment. when it came to what i wanted for myself post highschool graduation it was all just a big what should i do and how can i make myself better, while making milestone accomplishments towards graduation.
the list consisted of:
keeping a higher GPA level
finishing school to prove to certain people that i could finish schooling
staying active in the community
getting into a better school
getting into teaching
having my assiciates before i turned 21
and my bachelors before i turned 22
being out of the house by 23
and so on...
this list was made up from one of my former teachers to be placed on my fridge as a constant reminder that there were things i had to do in school and not just be distracted my a partying college life which yes is highly fun but as a distracted person this list constantly reminded me that i had small milestones that in the future lead to a bigger goal of a degree and also adulthood. the smaller the goal and more of them kept it easier to accomplish a big goal or will help achieve the goal of a bachelors in December. another factor which has made it easier was because the tasks are things i highly desire making accomplishing them more important. as i accomplish the tasks i cross them off one by one till my list is complete.
