The Principle — ADD Tip o the Day 301

The principle is :  identify the problem, make a strategy, make it a rule, make it a habit.

Magpie did just this when she suggested a holder to hold my keys onto the gas pump, so I wouldn’t keep driving off with the hose stuck in my tank.  But I didn’t need the holder, I can just hook the keys on the  latch of the gas tank door.  Next principle; we are all different and we need to make strategies for work for us,  individually.

Next principle: when we make the rule, we will frequently mess up. We need to be tolerant with ourself and just stick with it.  It will become a habit.

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.

    I just started reading a book called “The Power of Habit” by Charles Duhigg. It is fascinating how habits work and how much control they have over our actions. Once we understand what our habits are and how they are formed and triggered, we can consciously tweak them and make them work for us. I’m hopeful.
