ADHD

I realised I’ve been losing my fight with ADHD, so I’m reading and planning and doing my best to get better. These notes are mostly reminders for me, but might explain the way I act to some friends.

From:

Your Life Can Be Better: using strategies for Adult ADD/ADHD

Puryear MD, Douglas A.

Chapter 3:

“Most people’s focus center is turned on by the fact that something is important. But not ours. We understand ‘important’. We can acknowledge ‘important’, but ‘important’ does nothing for us. ‘Important does not turn on our focus center and we can be nearly helpless to try to get something done without our focus center on.”

Chapter 13

Avoid over committing

Learn to say No

“Is this a good use of my time?”

Minimize decisions
