Help me JUST CLICK REPLY ALREADY.

I regularly flake on email responses-- both personal and professional. (I have all the comorbidities you'd expect: ADHD, perfectionism, perpetual writer's block, mild social anxiety, introversion, disorganization, procrastination/avoidant tendencies.) I'm starting a new job and need this particular behavior to stop forthwith. Short of completely overhauling my whole effed-up executive function, is there an ironclad system I can implement to ensure that every single one of those emails gets answered punctually?

How to motivate or force an ADD student to self-study?

I'm a college student with pretty serious ADD who's doing an Independent Study contract in a sink-or-swim situation on a topic I love and am motivated to research. However, I can't actually bring myself to start to do it seriously, and have wasted nearly half the quarter. Stress is mounting, time is nigh, my ability to follow my own schedules near-zero so far. How do I salvage this? [more inside]

A shiny, a shiny, my queendom for a shiny!

I work at a desk job where the bulk of my projects take place during the academic year. As I have ADD [ADHD inattentive type], routines and a high level of activity really help, and I've worked hard to get things where they need to be. Once again, however, the summer slump is kicking my ass. Please hope. [more inside]

Pulling the Fat out of the Fire

I have fucked up yet another academic semester. This is the third time--I fucked up as a freshman, took time off, came back, fucked up again, took more time off, and came back and have repeated the cycle. Only now, now that I've realized I've shot myself in the foot again, I desperately want to recover my academic career somehow. Is it possible? Is it over? [more inside]

re-learning how to be a drone

After toiling in freelance obscurity for the past 3.5 years, where I have been working from home 90% of the time, I have FINALLY landed a significant long-term gig working at a large company (technical product manager for a large financial data/systems provider). How on earth do I break my bad work habits developed during this time? E.g.: checking email 20x per minute, posting on MeFi all day long? Are there any tricks to getting back that heads-down focus, any exercises, any advice?
