One strategy I have seen on ADDitude a lot is – do it with a buddy. My experience is that it’s more fun putting something together when you have a friend helping or just being there. Maybe it would slow you down to have a buddy read the instructions to you. I’ve put together stuff with lots of little parts and these can be overwhelming. Sorting those first makes me slow down: Making sure I have 2 “A” gadgets, 5 “B” gizmos, 15 “C” screws, and 6 “D” widgets and putting them in separate piles. Having a friend there would help remind me not to just start putting pieces together even when it’s obvious that part “F” attaches to part “H”. I might miss the part where part “A” needs to attached to part “X”, before “F” to “H”.
Can’t help much on the menus. If there’s more than 2 pages, it may take me half an hour to make sense of it and order.
