  1. I get you. I struggle with these things as well, and it’s one of the reasons I don’t last longer than 3 months at most of my jobs. So now I just work for my dad’s retail business in the back office for 4 hours a day, and have an easy job that doesn’t require much executive functioning.

  2. Thanks for sharing! This is a subject that’s both familiar and important to me, personally and professionally. I’ve written a lot about how we can support children and young people – it’s so good to hear from someone else how these ‘hacks’ we can put in place as teens make things easier as an adult.

  3. Thank you for this video. I’ve just launched my own blog geared toward women on the spectrum, and I would looove to maybe publish an interview with you some time (written question/answer format) if you would be interested. I’m publishing my first post on January 1st. Anyways, I’m just happy to meet new women Aspie bloggers and I really look forward to following you! Happy new year!! =)

  4. I also use paper and digital, I have a paper Planner, where it all get written down, and I have way to many stickers that I use in it as well. I use google calendar and its alerts, as well as a post it notes on the wall of my calendar, everything that needs doing gets a post it on the wall. So I don’t miss anything. People from my office will just add post its to the wall if they need me to do something. It works well. My planner is made by Passion Planner, stickers from Create365 mostly.

  5. I struggle with executive functioning, and I didn’t even know what it was until a couple of months ago. Now I need to find a manual and learn what it entails and how to improve. I am pursuing an autism diagnosis, so hopefully that will be something I can address with that.

  6. Oh my gorsh.

    This is the first of your videos I have watched.
    Your speech pattern is so much like mine! I haven’t ever heard someone who pauses in the ways I do.

    Watching more videos soon, and probably commenting on all of them. Hi!
