I’m not trying to get in your face – I really want to know.
If you have Attention Deficit Disorder, there must be one symptom above all the others that gives you the most trouble. Do you know what it is? What would it take for that not to be an issue anymore? Do you know?
Tough questions, I know. They are for me, anyway.
I guess my biggest issue is focus, followed by impulsiveness. I’m always looking for something bigger, better, faster, easier – something-er. And if I find something that I think fits the bill, I jump, often without thinking it through.
Here’s an example: last year, I noticed that many of my fellow ADHD coaches had websites that were not doing them justice. The design, the layout, the way they operated it, just wasn’t good business. So what did I do?
I bought a domain name, hired someone to do some design work for me for the new site, tried letting my peers know about it, and then found out no one was interested. Money, time, and energy all wasted, because I wanted the excitement of a new business (lack of focus) and I jumped into it (impulsive) without first checking to see if anyone wanted that kind of information.
OK, so the other part to my question was “What would it take for that not to be an issue anymore?”.
For me, it boils down to structure and a plan. Both will tell me what I need to be doing and when. They will help keep me focused and minimize my chances of wandering off.
What would you like to change, and how are you going to do it?
