I am sure you have considered many different types of tools available to help you work with your ADHD. And you may have a difficult time deciding which of the many options to explore and eventually try and which to ignore or at least table.
You may even find yourself attracted to the novelty of new technologies, new systems, new strategies… the next “shiny penny.” As an adult with ADHD this may feed your need for stimulation, while also making the process of choosing the right tool from among the many options even more challenging.
Yet coupled with the right strategy, the right tool can certainly help you.
My intention in providing you this list is to help you think about how the various types of tools available may help you manage your ADHD.
The key to choosing the right tool is to be sure that the tools you choose are a good fit for your needs.

How To Choose The Right Tool
Before using your time and energy in pursuit of the “holy grail” ask yourself the following questions to determine whether a particular tool will meet your current needs:
- How does this tactic / tool fit into my overall strategy to manage my ADHD?
- Do I have a important need that this is going to meet now?
- Do I have the time to follow through in implementing and using this now?
- Do I already have a tool that meets the same objective? Is what I have good enough for now?
“Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.”
– Sun Tzu
