This is just human nature, but these issues are more critical if we have ADD or ADHD:
1. we will struggle and struggle with a problem; once we find a solution, we will stop doing it (AA, antidepressants, regular exercise, putting keys only on the front table, getting in bed by 11, getting up by 7, etc)
2. when we are under heavy stress, we will stop doing the things that help us handle stress (exercise, yoga, mediation, getting outdoors, etc.)
3. when a man is under time pressure, the first thing he will cut out is his family.
4. when what we’re doing isn’t working, we will try doing it even more.
