(M) Power Hour: Time Management & To-Do Lists for Neurodivergent Brains

Thursday, July 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

This is a member event and is not being run by the Better Business Network.

Do you feel overwhelmed more often than you want to in your business?

Do you struggle to decide which tasks you should do first, and end up stuck in analysis paralysis?

Do you constantly underestimate or overestimate how long it will take you to complete tasks and end up in a muddle with your time?

That’s probably because most time management and productivity ‘hacks’ you’ve been taught don’t work for your neurodivergent brain.

The Eisenhower Matrix? Nope! Because ADHD brains often see EVERYTHING as urgent and important, so the heck how do we prioritise?

Eat The Frog First? Nope! Usually, that’s the fastest way to drain the energy from our dopamine-seeking brains and leave us feeling like we need a lie down.

Pomodoro Technique? Nope! Seriously, you want me to break my hyperfocus every 25 minutes? That sounds like hell.

“Why don’t you just buy a planner?” OMG. Don’t even get us started on that one…

And the list goes on…

So, when most time management and productivity advice for business owners doesn’t work for your neurodivergent brain, what do you do?

How do you avoid the traps of decision paralysis, meltdown from overwhelm and social media dopamine-scrolling in order to get on with the stuff that actually matters to your business?

The good news is, there are LOTS of ways that could work for you!

In this Power Hour, Alice Reeves, Joyfully Different Co-Founder, Business Owner, Consultant and Coach will share the time management and productivity methods that work for them, including:

* The ‘Boulders, Pebbles & Sand’ technique
* The ‘Four Ds’ of Getting Through Overwhelm
* Prioritising the tasks that energise you first
* Body doubling, accountability buddying and more
* Tools and tech that help you avoid the most common pitfalls neurodivergent business owners face

The main session will be followed by a Q&A and Group Discussion. We hope that by giving some space to share what works for all of us, everyone will come away with at least one idea that could work for them!
