Free Resource: Get There On Time, Every Time

Never be late again! In this free download, ADHD experts explain why adults with ADHD are usually late — plus offer ways to improve your time-management skills.

Do you relate too much to the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland — always running “late to a very important date”? It’s a common problem for adults with ADHD, who have difficulty planning their time or foreseeing obstacles in their path. Which means after rushing around your apartment like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to get dressed, you might get caught up in the traffic jam you forgot to budget your time for: Every. Single. Day.

Time management is a big problem for people with ADHD. Everyone is late on occasion, but many people with ADHD run behind schedule more often than not. They are late to meetings. They stand up their friends. They pick up the kids late from school. They leave others waiting as they scramble to finish last-minute tasks or find misplaced wallets, cell phones, or keys. People with ADHD don’t intend to be inconsiderate or disrespectful. But because of chronic tardiness, they’re often perceived that way.

Break the cycle of the late arrival with this downloadable guide, filled with expert tips for understanding — and conquering — your chronic lateness. ADHD gurus Kathleen Nadeau and Michele Novotni tackle common ADHD time management problems like planning, execution, and shame, offering easy-to-follow solutions for each one. It may not be possible to stop being tardy altogether, but with these handy tips, you’re sure to be on time more often than not!
