Controlling the Overwhelm

March 13, 2011 by  
Filed under Coping, Ourselves, Success!

I have one foot stuck in the overwhelm as if it were quicksand. I sometimes forget my own advice. When we are most overwhelmed it’s time to stop chasing the work and regroup. Between a crashed car, some computer and staffing setbacks on the workfront, working up to the launch of the Academy and a […]

I need it ASAP!! You have to get this to them ASAP!! Four words. As Soon As Possible. The implication of ASAP is that the task at hand is so important, we don’t even have time to sound out the words. We are putting an easy label on the priority of this request. Too easy, if you ask […]

Put yourself behind the wheel: It’s still dark. You have been driving for hours even though it is only 5:30 AM. You are on a three lane interstate highway. Although there has been some snow in the region, the roads have been clear and almost dry. Anxious to get where you are going, you move […]

When you have ADHD, you often see things other people miss. When the neuro-typical (“normal”) person sees a wooden table, the ADHD’r sees: the wood grain and imagines what part of the tree it came from the surface scratches and tries to guess what caused them the fact that the legs are not aligned with […]

Filed under Ourselves

You know who you are. You are the reasons we keep on doing what we do. We move forward, hour after hour, taking peaceful solace in knowing you will be there at the end of the day. Without you, it would be like we had to continue on without the sun rising or setting. Things […]

Have you ever felt like your house has become a 3-ring circus? I use to think of the chaos in my home just like that. The keywords here are “used to”. In my professional life, I learned early on that if you don’t manage a situation, the situation will always manage you. This also applied […]

Are you the type who has this inner conflict: You have the ability to hyperfocus, but due to your distractibility that focus is often misplaced? I don’t know about you, but I find it real easy to throw myself into a task with great abandon. The only problem is that the task I choose may […]

The buzz for the last week or so – just like the year before and the year before that – has been about “resolutions”.  A resolution could be defined as a decision to do something or to behave in a certain way.  So many of us, each year, talk about what we will do different […]

Filed under Ourselves

OK – I’m outing myself. I am not some Super-Dad. Nor have I beaten ADHD. The guy with the cape doesn’t exist. As the ADHD Hunter, I do know what we have had better success with. And equally, we have had massive failure moments. Perfection is unattainable. The message here is not “Be Perfect” or […]
