Too Busy Taking My Time #adhd #adhdcoaching #adhdcommunity #productivity Sep 08, 2023

“I was too busy taking my time,” she said to her husband.

I laughed.

And wrote it down.

Because too good not to share!

Isn’t that often true for ADHD?

I held the carved statue in my hand and wondered.

It just didn’t seem to be the exact momento to remember Sandra Grace by.

It was pretty but I wasn’t drawn to it. It didn't speak to me.

I circled the room again and saw a small photo of a bell.

Hmmmm…now that’s...

The Best Laid Plans #adhd #productivity adhdcoach anxiety planning timemanagement Jun 17, 2023

The best laid plans of mice and men...

My plan was to take you through a daily journey of my new ADHD medication and how it was working for me.

TLDR: it didn't.

The plan failed before it even began.

I took my first Adderall early Thursday morning.

Why ADHDers Need to Pause #adhd #adhdcoaching #pause #productivity #selfworth #well-being Jun 04, 2023

Friday afternoon, I looked out our large window - taking a quick breather in between readying the kitchen for a family lunch.

A female cardinal was splashing in our backyard birdbath.

I cried over a pork chop.

I was in a chemo brain re-training group learning how to not forget allthethings.

In usual times, I would have chuckled and said...

The last thing I remember is feeling something in my right pants pocket, pulling it out, and thinking “oh you need to put that in your wallet before you lose it.”

Other than that I have nothing.

Did I put it back in my pants pocket?

Did I put it someplace...

The Secret to Getting Out of Overwhelm #productivity adhd overwhelmed Mar 18, 2023

Florida - think warmth, sun, tropics, fruity drinks, my parents!

The excitement for a long weekend vacation was looming.

Monday, my teen texted me that she had Friday off.

The day that I was flying to Florida.

She has been dreaming out loud about tropical time.

Winter is wearing her down.

How to Take Time Off Even When You're Overwhelmed #adhdcoaching #productivity #well-being adhd overwhelmed time-management Mar 07, 2023

Since summer, my client has wanted to take Friday afternoons off.

Because she runs her own business, it’s hard for her to be away for a week at a time.

She has a busy schedule of projects and frequently the client work would seep right into her weekend.

It was driving her crazy and she was...
