With ADD or ADHD we tend to get critical and down on ourself. That’s demoralizing.
I play the guitar – usually I would have put a self depreciatory comment here, or put “play” in quotation marks, but not today.
I am not very good. Sometimes when I hear someone who is good, it’s discouraging and it gets hard to pick up the guitar for a while. But I’m a lot better than I used to be, have learned a lot, know a lot, can do a lot. Tho not good, maybe good enough. Get a little better every month. Well, it’s been 50 years,but looking back to where I started, I am actually pretty good. And that helps me pick it up again, and get better, instead of getting down and letting it go. A strategy.
problem is i have no talent, except for remembering songs, that’s a gift, and no rhythym. but i do pretty well.
the book is doing pretty well, selling about one per day, and good reviews – it is really helping some people, very gratifying. thats what its about.
