The secret of life — ADD Tip o the day 223

What is the secret of life?? 

I keep thinking that I’ll finally get it together, maybe this year, certainly by next.   All the little bits of insights that I have, that come and go, will finally fall into place and all of the pieces will fit.  I’ll finally have a handle on it all and stay on top of everything, keep up, have priorities straight, be able to relax but not waste time, smell the roses and be productive both at the same time. 

Ain’t gonna happen.  Need to use strategies to make things go as well as I can and just enjoy it.

  This right now is life, this is the way life is and the way it’s going to be; I will need to just keep plugging away, learning the same lessons over and over again, lurching too far this way, and then lurching too far back.  Use strategies, plug away, and enjoy.   That’s the secret.

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. 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.
