Sequencing is performing the steps of a task in a logical order.

Remembering all of the steps in the proper order can be challenging, even if it was automatic previously.

Everyday issues

  • You get lost or tangled up in processes that require doing steps in a certain order.
  • Your days seem unproductive and harried.
  • You have a hard time following recipes.
  • You have a difficulty following the steps necessary to put furniture together.

Strategies to get you started

  • Consider what you have coming up, and determine the best method to accomplish everything as efficiently as possible.
  • Before you do something that requires multiple steps, take an extra moment to mentally go back to the basics and review the steps of that process.
  • If you are receiving instructions, use Notability to record the conversation for replay later.
  • Use the BEST My Checklist app to record tasks and times for routines.
