Why I don’t get it done – Part 2 — ADD Tip o the day 129

So I’m doing something I enjoy, or maybe not, maybe I’m just killing time, instead of doing what I need to do.  Reasons:

1. I’m not sure I can do it – it looks too big, too hard, too complicated.  inadequacy

2. I’m not sure I can do it well.  perfectionism.

3. I just don’t want to do it, but that’s usually a smoke screen for the first two reasons.

The strategies are the same, small steps, focus on one.   I can also promise myself a reward after each step and after the whole thing.  It does help, a little, if i figure out why I’m stalling.


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 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.
