Removing Time Blindness (even if you have ADHD)

CUSTOM JAVASCRIPT / HTML



If you struggle with time (being on time, planning your time, recognizing how much time something will take you) you may be struggling with time blindness.

Guess what? Despite common belief, you can actually remove time blindness.

Understanding Time

Yup, out of the 28 thinking skills, understanding time is one of them.
And because it’s a skill you can learn it.

Now before we get into ways to improve your time blindness, you've got to remember time is one of the most abstract concepts for your brain to comprehend.
It will take time for your brain to understand time.
I don’t have a magic pill to make it all go away but I do have hope I can give you. Lots of it.


4 Ways to Remove Time-Blindness

  • Have a big monthly calendar hanging up in a place you see often.
    Write down any important dates, appointments, meetings, etc.
    This will help your brain to start comprehending time on a bigger time horizon. Today we have the doctor's appointment, tomorrow it’s the lawyer meeting and next week it’s with the dentist.
    By writing it out and putting it in a place you see often, your brain will calm down (instead of getting focused you might miss it) and will be able to see what needs to happen each day.
    Better yet, if you can hang up more than 1 month at a time you’ll be improving your understanding time on an even longer time horizon.
    Start with one month, if you feel you can add another, do so and see if you can build up to 6 months ahead.



  • Give your brain the understanding how long each task takes.
    Often people with ADHD struggle to estimate how long a task takes. You probably find yourself dreading a task because it will take you aaaggeess to do only for you to find yourself when you actually do it, it takes minutes. And vice versa, you think a task will take you fast and it actually takes a while.
    For a week, time all the tasks you do often and you will get an average on how long the task actually takes.

  • Work with your brain's tendencies to leave tasks to last minute.
    People with ADHD often struggle with is leaving a task to the last minute (as deadlines often help) but not with enough time to complete the task. ​If this is the case, take a big task and break it into smaller tasks with smaller deadlines. As you find yourself meeting the deadlines more often, easier, to make the deadline for a slightly longer/larger task and build on there.

  • Watch the words you use.
    So often I hear people with ADHD say, “I’m sorry I’m time blind” or “I may run overtime because I’m time blind.”
    This is one of the worst things you can do for your time blindness because you are labeling yourself as time blind and your brain will look for ways to keep you time blind.
    A much better version would be to say, “I’m working on getting better at understanding time.” It’s a slight shift that allows your brain to look for new ways to understand time.

One Last Thing

One last thing that wouldn’t specifically help you remove your time blindness but will most help you during this process, is right before you have a meeting or appointment - don’t do one last thing.
Often we’re about to run out the door and just throw in a load of laundry but THAT Is the thing that makes us late.
Or we know we have a meeting and there’s still 60 seconds you’re just gonna reply to ONE email and that’s the thing that makes you late.


Your Challenge

It’s going to take time to take time to remove time blindness but IT IS POSSIBLE (even if you have ADHD). YES, there is hope.

Your challenge this week is to choose one of four strategies we spoke about and implement it this week.
