Comment- the hard part Tip of the day 24

Got an excellent comment from E. T. G. about starting:

Most interesting.  I can relate to just about everything

you wrote.  Doing the hard part first is not always  possible. 

Take altering a garment, for example. ( sometimes I   put this off) 

The hard part is putting it back together, but one has to

take it apart first. Maybe that falls into a different  category. 

 The book should be a very interesting  read,

and I might actually learn something :>

from East Texas Girl


Well, yes, some things have a necessary sequence and you can’t choose where to start.  You can’t put it together before you take it apart, and you can’t do the cleaning up before you eat the dinner.  But if you have trouble getting started, think of small steps.  Instead of ‘altering the dress’, you are going to ‘take it apart’ (not my field, but I assume that’s a single step.)   Then when you’ve done that, the next step is to ‘put it back together’. Maybe that can be broken into steps?  It may be easier to start if you just think of one step instead of the whole project.

Thanks for the comment



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.
