Slogans —- ADD Tip o the day 224

We all have self talk, don’t we? It can harm us or be a useful tool.

These are some slogans I’ve found useful in self talk:

1. Do it now, do it right, do the hard part first.

2. I can only do what I can do.

3. Just plug away.

4. One thing at a time.

5. Does it really matter?

6. Is this the best use of my time right now?

7. I have as much time as anyone else.

These are all discussed in the book; I may go into them in future blogs.  Just think of a wise loving aunt or uncle giving you good advice, and say it to yourself.


if we have ADD or ADHD we may not have any more self talk than anyone else, but it may be more important in our lives.

the blog is now over 6000 hits, thanks to all of you.  and your comments are much appreciated.

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.
