We all work differently and need to choose how we approach our work to reflect that. No matter how your brain works, the best way to work it is to know it. This week, episode 151 of the Positively Living Podcast is about productivity tips for neurodiverse brains!

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Jimmy Clare shares tips and ideas that he uses himself as an entrepreneur and student living with Autism. Jimmy’s perspective will inspire you to find new ways to get focused, whether you’re neurodiverse or not. 

Jimmy and I cover the following topics:

  • How Jimmy took the Pomodoro technique and tweaked it to something that works for his length of focus. 
  • The calendar method (similar to my flex blocking method) that allows Jimmy to schedule his week so that he can work in flow. 
  • Leveraging automation, reminders, and templates to stay on track of completing your to-do list. 
  • Finding the right tools and techniques through a series of trial and error.   

Your #1 productivity tool is self-awareness because when you’re self-aware, you’re able to find the tools and techniques that work for you!
