I don't know if I have ADHD, but I certainly have some signs of it and the signs have been getting worse over time. Recently I have found that taking frequent walking breaks to be a good antidote. When I start studying or coding on my laptop in the library, I will go on a 1 minute walk every 10 or 15 minutes. The main thing it does is give me peace of mind ...

ADHD sufferer here. I am not sure if I can give anybody any advice because I don't think I have a recipe or solution (if I had one I would have used it myself haha).Since you say that you have ADHD so bluntly, I take that you've already seen a psychiatrist and your psychiatrist tried to hook you up with pharma already. As a long time user of the medications ...

I've experienced similar emotions to yours. Recently I've hit a bit of a slump after some personal problems. Here are two resources that helped me massively get over it - both are full of actionable advice ranging from daily activities you can perform, to general 'set up' and 'state of mind' advice. For me what helped the most were: - establish a healthy ...

Get interested. The more you love it, the more you will like to complete it and get involved in it for a while. No one loves to do a task they don't like to do, and same goes for the focus. Try to see the subjective sides of the application you are completing. I mean don't view the application you are developing as a large single objective stuff you need ...

I have a bad case of ADD (specifically, the "inattentive" version). Agile/Scrum has been very helpful for me, particularly the part in which we break down a story into smallish, single-minded (mostly) tasks. Additionally, for me personally, finding some music that will help keep focus and keep out distractions has been great. Music with few words is ...

Practicing focus helps develop better focus. Study 2 minutes, watch youtube/do something fun for 1 minute, study 5 minutes, watch youtube 1 minute, etc, etc moving up. There's a really good video about studying smarter here and it discusses this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlU-zDU6aQ0 I also have a lot of trouble focusing so I keep a notepad open that ...

It's not necessarily a good thing to focus for a long time when you are programming. Robert Martin in his book The Clean Coder warns against getting into "The Zone", for example. Any programming task can be broken down into a bunch of smaller tasks - in fact writing small units of code usually relates to a good design. Try using Test-Driven development to ...

I do research involving computational modeling, which gives rise to the same problem of dead time. Here is what I've ended up doing to stay focused on a single task and keep up my momentum while not wasting too much time goofing off: Script simulations to perform several runs at once. From your comment to MÃ¥rten, that is not the best solution for you ...

You can make multi-tasking easier a lot easier by dumping the entire context to paper when you switch, especially by recording the Next Action Item. In other words, when you are about to pause a task (probably because you have to wait for something to happen), you record everything on paper, everything that you will need to remember to get restarted, and ...

So almost all of your time is spent preparing executions? It possible for you to know beforehand what kind of tests will be run? Can you list 5-10 possible tests for a given project? In that case, you can start by preparing a lot of tests and let them run while you're not in office. This will let you work consistently without interuptions for waiting for ...
