disorganized —- ADD Tip o the day 82

I run into people who are too disorganized to get organized.   They don’t have time to learn how to manage time.   I hope they will read the book, but one of my fears is that people with ADD won’t get through it.  They will buy it, which is good, and they will be very enthusiastic, and they will start, but then they will get distracted and it will get set aside, and some other new enthusiasm will take over.  So I have tried to write in such a way that it will hold the attention, have interesting and novel and challenging things on every page.  It’s a tall order, a challenge for me.  Some people with ADD are good readers, and some of my reviewers with ADD have managed to get through it, so there’s hope. 

A strategy for getting the book read would be to make a committment, promise a reward upon completion, break it into small chunks (it has sections and chapters), and make out a schedule for reading them.

I’ve nearly finished draft 16, and it’s a lot tighter and somewhat shorter now so that’s good.

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. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (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.
