Everyone needs a break sometimes, especially when you’re working harder than most others at work. You are likely able to “perform” at work but not at home due to the level of accountability at each place. At work, you have people holding you accountable for doing the work (the tasks) and you have a big consequence if you don’t perform — no job and no income. At home, you may not have anyone to hold you accountable for getting stuff done, especially if you live alone.
So, the question becomes, how can you add some extrinsic accountability to tasks that take place outside of work? Maybe a friend can be a body double. Maybe you work with an ADHD coach. There are many options.
