    How does a person establish, and stick to, a routine or system?

    I know that might sound like kind of a "duh"mb question - but I'm asking for advice for those of us who struggle mightily with this question/issue, and with severe deficits in the organizational and executive functions and skills seemingly essential to address this "keeping yourself together, man!" matter.

    Are there compensatory strategies by which we so lacking can take some responsibility for managing our lives??  The couch helps.  So does the pharmacy.  But what would Mr. Miagi have me do to better myself?

    I think it first takes knowing what you want and setting a goal. If you know what you want and want it bad enough figure out the steps to take to get there. Those steps become the established routine that you'll stick to.  Good luck!

    I think it's just a matter of making yourself do something.  I'm pretty lax overall, but I find if I make a list for myself I'm more inclined to follow it.  Maybe you can start to generally plan out each day and then tighten it up as necessary?
