Civet wrote:I wonder, does anyone has any strategies for things like following directions? I have a hard time when doing things that require multiple written steps, like cooking from a recipe book or following driving directions. I can manage it but it always feels very difficult and I have to constantly refer back to my list/directions.

I work at home so this is particularly effective for me since I can check it easily. I used to write lists of "to dos" on note paper and then I'd have little bits of paper floating around everywhere so that's not an approach I'd recommend. Having something stationary to go back to is what helps me, and I also have the good feeling of satisfaction of being able to cross something out right after I've completed it. The other good thing is that since it's dry erase it's plastic and I can erase things and rewrite them to another day if I'm finding I don't have the time or the energy to handle everything I've allotted for a particular day.
