Check, check, check —- ADD Tip o the day 86

Left my blue sports jacket hanging on the back of the chair at the restaurant at JFK airport.  It was hot and stuffy there,  no air conditioning on in the airport.  Leaving the jacket there wasn’t so bad except my boarding pass was in the pocket.  

Once I lost our tickets in Mexico City, I had put them inside my shirt so they would be safe, and apparently when I reached up to the overhead to get the bags, my shirt became untucked and the tickets fell out.  We made a rule that day, Martha always carries the tickets.  These kinds of things do keep happening.

At JFK we were near the end of a long lay over when I finally realized I didn’t have my jacket.  Didn’t have much time left til boarding, but I went back and restaurant manager had it for me and we made it.   

New Rule: always look all around before I leave anywhere.

On the long runway to the plane I noticed that the boarding pass was hanging out of my pocket, about to fall.  Don’t have a new rule for that yet, try to only work on one at a time:  but maybe should leave the boarding passes with Martha too.

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.
