Procrastination, Thy Name Is ADD ADHD — Tip o the Day 475

So here I sit, piddling around, looking at e mails, wasting time, avoiding writing the next blog post, which is on procrastination- in other words, procrastinating- when this procrastination post pops up in my e mail.

Coincidence??  You decide.

So I reblogged it yesterday (right away, immediately)

In case you missed it, I put the link below.

I also note that I’m still collecting blog posts on how to market, rather than marketing, which is hard work.  And I’m collecting tips on publishing, instead of writing the next book.  Fish or cut bait.

The tip for breaking procrastination – break it into very small steps, pick one and do it. Right now.

(I’m putting this in several days after finished this post for the first time; will repeat it in next post: I just downloaded Finish app from Apple i tunes, free, looks great,  to handle THE PROCRASTINATION MONSTER.  It was designed by two teenagers who are featured in a New York Times story today (Sunday).  Wonder how it will work with ADD ADHD?  Has anyone used it?)

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. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (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.

    I really didn’t appreciate this post because I am at this moment procrastinating. I need to go fold the laundry and start dinner and work on tomorrow’s blog post but instead I’m surfing the net and catching up on your blog posts. But I’m caught up now so I guess I’ll go tackle one thing – the laundry. That’ll probably get me rolling to do the rest.

    Thanks for blogging, Doug.
