This chapter focuses on how adult clients with ADHD can identify and minimize distractions in their work environment to create a situation that is more conducive to concentration. Clients are urged to find one place where they can do important tasks without distractions. Information is presented about the importance of keeping track of important personal objects such as keys, wallet, and phone. Suggestions are made about how to set up effective systems for this. Clients can use reminders such as alarms to check in with themselves to see if they are on track or have gotten distracted.
