I have asked this question in chat a time or two, and honestly I am still searching for an answer. How on earth do you pursue formal studies with this disorder? And if formal studies (classes, online, etc.) are not possible, how does one go about pursuing an area of study? The ongoing problem is that I choose an area of focus, provide myself some materials, pep talk it up, get excited, start... and within a few days, it slides into the background. It is completely forgotten in the daily maze. Three weeks can easily pass before that "Oh, yeah!" moment hits. How are others handling this issue? I know many in here have managed to do Coursera, or have managed a low level of college courses with support. This has been going on, really, since my last two years of high school a looooong time ago. I am able to cruise and surf through material if it's a leisurely activity. If I want to follow a course of learning consistently, all the goal-setting tips I have come across are quickly useless. Dory brain here... So... An example: I would like to resume my study and love of music, playing the piano in particular. How do I remember three seconds later, and really make things happen? Is this unrealistic?
