Eat desert first —– ADD Tip o the day 198

That’s my new years resolution for 2012.  And Happy New Year by the way.

Eat desert first because you never know what’s going to happen.  We can make all these plans and schedules and then boom!  something unexpected pops up.  Thats why I try to stay ahead.  Like this blog, it’s not due until sunday but I’m writing it on saturday.  Or I’m scheduled to clean up the dog poop in the yard tomorrow, but I did it this morning.  Or I get my cereal and bowl set out the nite before, so its waiting for me in the morning.   Anything that I can do now so I won’t need to do it tomorrow reduces pressure.  So stay ahead, and eat desert first.

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.

  1. Good thinking!! I just have to be careful to not focus so much on that which is ahead, that I forgot what I was supposed to be doing…now!
