You deserve to do more than get by or cope. Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed. Getting by and coping don’t lead to a life of joy. Getting diagnosed and treated is the first step in learning to manage your ADD and your life. That’s the first step toward thriving. ADDers sometimes get […]

Memorization Learning Tip

It’s been awhile since I had to memorize something. Those brain cells lose their elasticity with memorization without constant work. I’m struggling with learning a 5-minute presentation I wrote to give for Ignite. It’s *only* five minutes long and I haven’t embedded it in my brain to present with timed slides. I know the material.

Your Productivity Tool Bag

The audience members of Ignite Ridgway I spoke with afterward all commented that they used the Structure component of time management from the tool bag I presented that night. They used it for themselves and/or their kids. ADD runs in families, you know.  🙂  Initially, I thought I’d underestimated my audience and was guilty of […]

ADD Crutches

I wrote an article a couple of weeks ago about the various kinds of crutches people can use to get through life — using behavior like the cast you’d put on a broken limb. Just as you have to remove the cast from the limb and strengthen your muscles, you have to remove the emotional […]

Walkin’ On

Walking is my theme these days as I train for my “little jaunt” this fall. So today I want to talk about walking On, In, and To. Walking On Dr Loeffler, my geography professor, always said that you don’t really know a place until you’ve walked the land. I knew he was right but it […]

It’s A Lifestyle

Discovering the Primal Blueprint introduced me to the concept of having a lifestyle of clean eating, frequent and regular movement, lots of sleep, and good social time rather than a diet, an exercise program, sleeping some, and spotty time with friends. I found that shift in thinking valuable for living a better life. (more…)
