The Very Short List – tip o the day 8

I use a lot of lists

the long list, the short list, the list of five, the list of three

but the most important list right now is the list of one.

I need to do this blog.   now.   that’s it.

I have a lot of things to do today-

No!  I don’t. 

That thinking will get me feeling overwhelmed

and I’ll be paralyzed.

No.  I have this one thing to do.  This blog.  Right now.

When I finish this, I can look at my list of five

and find that I have one thing to do, again.

Just one thing- that’s all, the list of one.


About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
