Your Mindfulness Muscle

Mindfulness is a journey, something you’ll always work on. Even the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu work on their mindfulness daily! Mindfulness, in my way of thinking, is being present, aware, alert, intentional. One person I talked to about mindfulness said she feels calmness when she’s mindful. (more…)

Structure’s Value

The value of structure is something I now understand from both sides of the discussion. I didn’t understand what it did for me until I’d removed it from, or at least greatly reduced its importance in, my life. Structure supported my success as an entrepreneur and it gave me the backbone I needed to manage my […]

E². “E squared” or Eating and Exercise. That’s the secret formula to high performance. That’s the secret to better ADD/ADHD management, too. I’ve said it before and will continue to say it: healthy eating and frequent exercise are good for everyone — and especially good for people with ADD. Also, it takes a healthy body […]

Driver Or Passenger?

When I worked for corporations I recognized there were workers and leaders. Both are needed to keep the cogs turning in a business.

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.

What’s Your Type?

What’s your type — your “neurotype” that is? Or, where is your intelligence stronger? ADDers have wonderful gifts, gifts that often aren’t recognized by standard measures. (more…)

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 […]

Anxiety Unraveled

I never thought of myself as an anxious person. I thought anxiety was more like panic or phobias, and I don’t tend toward panic or phobia. My thoughts have changed with my ADD research. Anxiety is not what I thought it was, it’s more. What is your definition of anxiety? (more…)
