Worrying — ADD TIp o the day 139

I have some concerns about the book:

1. to some it sounds like my life is very hard with all the rules and strategies.  It is not; they have made my life much easier than it was

2. It may sound like doing the rules and strategies is easy.  It is not, so we can only implement one or two changes at a time.

3. My wife says that our friend who is severely disorganized with ADD is too disorganized to read the book or to use any of the things in it even if he did read it.  I hope even the severely disorganized will be able to use the book to help  get more organized.

4.  I hope the book will come out in October, before people are caught up in the holiday season, and that it will sell well.  Between 3% and 10 % of the US public has ADD or ADHD, and many of us have significant others, so there is a wide audience.  But what I read indicates that marketing a book is a full time job.  I already have a job.  Maybe all of you can help?

So, I have written the book and sent it to the publisher.  I can only do what I can do.  I am not in control

That is the tip: Show up. Do your job. Quit worrying; you are not in control.


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.
