i always work on 2 things at once

Most things that I do for work bore me

Most of what I do for work is just making sure that the ship continues moving forward. It's quite boring, it's things like: accounting, purchasing, monitoring sales, trademark payments. Not really the kind of thing that keeps me on the edge of my seat.

When I was young, I was diagnosed with ADHD. It took me until I was about 18 to really learn how to get stuff done.

My relatively simple solution

The hack that I came up with when studying for my first complicated exams was simple. Always do 2 things at once. Usually, what I do is have the thing that I am actually working on in one screen on my computer and another activity on a second screen. That second activity has to be stimulating in a different way but can't be too entertaining.

Some examples of second activities I might do are:

This is basically controlled distraction. I hope this helps someone else out there.

It's very useful for boring things, for activities that I like this is of course not necessary.
