“That won’t work for me.” —- ADD Tip o the Day 306

Sometimes I hear that when I suggest a strategy for ADD or ADHD -

“That won’t work for me.”  Seems like four possibilities:

1.  they’ve never tried it.

2. they tried it, but not in an effective way.

3. if either #1 or #2, they need to figure out a way to make it work for them.

4. it won’t work for them, and they need to figure out a strategy that will work, for them.

We (with ADD or ADHD) are all different, but we are all creative, and we all need to be open to possibilities, and we all need strategies.  Strategies that work for US.  And it sure can make our lives better.
