Watch her diet, certain food may trigger better or worse behaviour, sometimes a little is ok, but too much can push them over the edge.
The next thing is.....explain to her, because of the ODD you do expect her to oppose/fight with you over most things, but as her mother, with her best interests at heart, you will keep working with her to get these things done. Making sure she knows you understand, part of her problem is 'automatic reaction' to things, and part of your job is to help her work through that so that her life is easier.
With any 'difficult' child, planning and consistency are your best friend. These kids need to know there limits and boundries more than the average kid, but are more likely to push them.
It will take all your strength and love for your child to surved the bad enough to enjoy the good, but the reward will be a happy family in the end,

That does help. Checklists/sticker lists, where she can put a mark or a sticker next to each completed task, frequent reminders, etc.
Important thing here is for you to maintain your patience while teaching her how to handle herself with her condition, because it's not something that is generally grown out of, so you're giving her tools to handle her every day life as well as make your morning routine smooth.
Also, maybe try laying out clothes the night before. That takes the whole closet drama out of the morning picture.
