Hurry!! — ADD Tip o the day 136

I sent the book to the publisher and they sent me back a sample chapter so I could check and revise the way they had set it up, the chapter headings etc.  I was very excited.  I was in a hurry because I really hope the book can come out in october and all of you will have the opportunity to buy at least one copy but think about your brother and your nephew and your friends  that all have ADD or ADHD.  you will certainly need copies for them.

So I was in a hurry and I rushed through it and I made the revisions and I was in a hurry and I just clicked the send button and I sent them in in a hurry and—

So now I got back the revised chapter and there were still number of pretty obvious mistakes.  I am slowly and carefully reviewing it. I will check it again before I send it.  These new revisions will cost me extra money.

Hurry is not good for ADD or ADHD.  The sense of excitement and of hurry are red flags.  They warn us to slow down and take a breath.


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.
