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?

Oh hai. I have a serious case of the ADHDs, and with that comes a very poor sense of time. Apps, timers, and calendar reminders help, but I think a physical reminder would be much more effective. Do you know of a bracelet I can buy that will vibrate at regular time intervals? Preferably one that doesn't look like it belonged to a middle school boy in the 1980s? (I'm pretty sure the FitBit doesn't offer this feature, and Jawbone only vibrates if you've been sedentary for a certain period of time. I do love the look of it, though.) Thanks!!

I'm returning to school and need help developing a system for remembering tasks and deadlines that involves a lot of redundancy. I am having trouble not just remembering said tasks and deadlines, but remembering to check any To-Do lists or planners I fill out. [more inside]
I'm starting to exercise some control over my time. Help me make this work. [more inside]
I have begun treatment for adult ADHD. What things can I do during the next several weeks to objectively measure my progress? [more inside]
