Sometimes it take a significant incident to help us see things in perspective. That happened with me recently. Is this particularly a problem for those of us with ADD or ADHD?
So I got a new strategy, a tool, that helps.
I was running a little late for a meeting (ADD). It seemed like all the cars in front of me had drivers that were old, or confused, or lost, or tourists gawking, or just didn’t know how to drive (aren’t there a lot of those?). They were slowing me down, and causing me to miss lights. Well, it was getting to me. I was going to be late. Then suddenly I realized, it really didn’t matter.
I’ll be a little late, so what?
When I’m feeling impatient, critical, frustrated,argumentative or irritated about something, I’m asking, “What does it really matter?” Usually, not much.
This is especially useful, since my ADD does make me impatient and irritable.
