I have a very administrative job, and I really want to try to stick it out – at least for a respectable period of time so i dont’ seem like a “job jumper.”

I’ve been upgrading to computerized systems – more “paperless.” For example there are project management programs that are used in construction. I don’t know if you are in a position where you can make decisions like that, but if you can’t institute it company-wide, maybe you can do it on a personal basis.

I rely heavily on Outlook – synced with an iPhone – with reminders and alarms throughout the day. I’m still trying to find the right balance, but my work has improved just learning about ADD, getting onto meds, and trying not to worry about past failures. I am trying to remove all distractions from my work environment, and avoid meeting with people on the spot – I try to always work things into the schedule and do less and less spontaneous stuff.

I hope it helps :)
