A while back I hypothesized one of the reasons people, especially those with ADHD, may resist capturing anything and everything that comes to their mind. In this post I discuss the tools I use to capture it all.
Perfectionism is one of many traits some ADHDers experience on a daily basis. Those who share this trait often appear hyper-organized, have difficulty letting go of the smallest of details, redo tasks and projects routinely, and even struggle to start projects when they believe they can't do them perfectly.
Last week, I wrote about how timers can be an ADHDers best friend, and promised a post on how one can get started. An entire post about getting started with timers? Rest assured, I am just as curious about what I'll write in the following paragraphs, as you are about what could possibly be said.
This got me to thinking about how I've gotten more flexible the more I've learned about myself, and my ADHD.
Everyone with ADHD lives a life of flexibility, whether they acknowledge it or not. Oftentimes, the flexibility comes in dealing with the every day struggles an ADHD mind can present. Ready to head out to work, but not sure where your keys are? You're now forced to be flexible about your arrival time (or the speed at which you drive). Missed out on the great electronics sale because you were too busy ruminating about whether or not you want/need the item? You've now been flexible enough to let the writers of the sale flyer make the decision for you.
