Neurodivergent word cloud


There’s no shortage of common wisdom around organizing and productivity on the internet. You may have written some of it yourself! And although that probably benefits many, people with neurodivergent traits are always looking for new and unique ways to support their challenges with focus and organization.

For this reason, I invited my readers to submit blog posts about Neurodiversity for this year’s first edition of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival.

The sponsor for this month is Susanna Miles, creator of The MindFlows Planning Collection. An entrepreneur with ADHD, Susanna developed her planners to provide a simple, visual system that makes it easy to see her plans and goals, and has made them available for others who’ve struggled with neurotypical planners and productivity advice.

As you read the posts listed below, please connect with the bloggers on social media, leave comments, and share your favorite posts with your own network. Please use the hashtag #POBC in your social media posts.

Thanks to everyone for sharing your wisdom, and special thanks to The MindFlows Planning Collection for sponsoring.

I’m now accepting submissions for the next Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival, when our topic will be Ten-Minute Tasks

Submit your post as soon as you’re ready – any time before 12:00 midnight EST on Tuesday, February 15th.

If you offer a product or service that would interest professional organizers or their clients, maximize your exposure by sponsoring an upcoming edition of the Productivity & Organizing Organizers Blog Carnival.

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

    Such a wealth of information. This is not my area of specialty, so I greatly appreciated all these experts have to offer. Will be sharing!

      Yes, I am thrilled with the wide range of information included. Susanna was a smart lady to suggest this topic!

    Late to the party, but I want to share I’ve focused my business on serving neurodivergent brains. I’m highly sensitive and there are people with ADHD and empaths in my family.

    Here’s a blog post I wrote about “How to Work with Highly Sensitive People – and why you want to”

    and here is a page about my online community and podcast, “Happy Space Pod”, which is all about HSP empowerment and creating a more tender world where neurodivergent brains can thrive.

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on February 11, 2022 at 6:28 am

      That’s great, Clare! I love learning about the new directions people I know have taken in their businesses, and this sounds like a very important and rewarding focus.
