I wrote about sitting, and how, like we with ADD or ADHD do, I started out with great enthusiasm, set unrealistically high goals, and then petered out. But I picked it up again, with a more realistic goal, and I just finished sitting – outdoors. We are in a warm snap and it’s beautiful.
So my wife read that blog, and then asked me about the book. I get really nice reviews and comments, which I love. They make me feel good about the work I put into the book, with the goal of helping people with ADD or ADHD and maybe those involved with us..
But my wife asked, “Is it really helping?” Maybe people with ADD or ADHD get it and start off with great enthusiasm. Maybe they pick up a strategy or two, and try them a little bit, and then when they slip up, or run into trouble and they just let go of it. Or maybe, like we humans do, they find something that really works and then they quit doing it and just slip back into old patterns. Or maybe they start reading with enthusiasm and then get distracted by some other book or project and don’t read anymore.
Of course, I hope not – but that’s ADD or ADHD, that’s the way we are, and that’s what we do. So I’m asking here – What was your experience with the book?
And if it was as above, I’m asking if you will pick up the book, or the strategy, again, and go forward. I made the chapters short so that it would be easy to read one or two, and put the book down and try a strategy, and then pick it up again later – I hope.
