Sticking with it— ADD Tip o the Day 364

I loved the first half. It was really, really practical. I’m struggling a bit with the second half. It’s not as practical or something. I’m not sure what. It’s probably not you – it’s most likely me. I think it might be because the first half covered time management and that’s the area I struggle most with. By the time I got to the second half, there wasn’t much more about that. I’ve been dealing with this for a long time and I’ve learned a lot of strategies already.
That being said, I think that every time I read a book about ADD, I pick up something new. Sometimes it’s something I change. Sometimes it’s confirmation that I’m on the right track. Sometimes it’s nice just finding out other people struggle with this, too. You described some strategies in the beginning of the book that were things I had been doing. I hadn’t realized those were strategies until you talked about them being the result of ADD. That made me feel good about myself.
I will finish the book. I’m just really busy these days and not finding much time to read anything. Your book is the most practical book on ADD I’ve ever read. I think I mentioned before that I wished you posted daily on your blog because you have so much good stuff to say.
So keep it up. I’m still learning and even if my life doesn’t change radically because of your book or your blog, you are making a difference.
maybe the second half isn’t as good, or maybe it doesn’t address your stuff as well? there is no requirement that you finish the book, tho i would be happy if you do. maybe just do a chapter at a time, no rush? or maybe skim and see if anything looks good to you? i do hope something in there will be useful to you.
as always, thank you for commenting.
I was reading some more last night and I was wrong. The second half is just as good – I guess I just got distracted.
Plus, I’m so stressed right now that I’ve been wanting to read “fluff” instead of stuff that makes my life better. Do you know what I mean?
well thanks, i glad you liked the second part too. sure i understand the fluff, somedays i want to just sit and watch reruns of gilligans island usually can get past it tho, have to find something very easy to do and that gets me moving.
thanks again for commenting..
I’m still enjoying your book, and using some of your strategies that I hadn’t thought of. It’s still amazing to me how many of the things you did, were exactly the same things that I did over the years. School, for instance. I remember doing term papers the night before they were due. I really didn’t know how to study very well, so never could put much into the footnotes. One time I went into take a college final, only to discover it was in that same place the day before! I was able to find the professor in his office, and he graciously allowed me to take the exam at his desk. He said, “lock the door when you’re finished, and don’t expect anything better than a C”.
thank you for the comment. I would love to hear about what was missing for you?
The best part of the book was how much I related to you as the author. I read the entire book (kindle ebook) and will reread it as I start new strategies. There were somethings that I would have liked to see in the book, yet they are something I could do myself. Overall your book created a greater awareness for me and that I thank you for.
