“That won’t work for me.” —- ADD Tip o the Day 306

Sometimes I hear that when I suggest a strategy for ADD or ADHD –

“That won’t work for me.”  Seems like four possibilities:

1.  they’ve never tried it.

2. they tried it, but not in an effective way.

3. if either #1 or #2, they need to figure out a way to make it work for them.

4. it won’t work for them, and they need to figure out a strategy that will work, for them.

We (with ADD or ADHD) are all different, but we are all creative, and we all need to be open to possibilities, and we all need strategies.  Strategies that work for US.  And it sure can make our lives better.

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 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.
