With ADD, ADHD, we tend to be interested in a lot of different things.
When we moved to Santa Fe, I planned to cut down my practice. Then I would have time to do things on my wish list, like woodworking, painting, hiking, etc.
I wound up doing my own bookkeeping, secretarial work, and screwing around with the insurance companies. My practice quickly became a full-time job.
Then I retired.
Now I will have time to do all the things on my wish list.
Almost everything I’m doing, I’m doing because I want to, and I’m enjoying it. I have no complaints. But my “free time” is pretty well taken up with writing my new book, and there’s not that much free time to start with.
With ADD ADHD, we need to set priorities, limit the number of projects we try to do at once, and accept that we can only do so much.
Quote o the Day:
“I don’t know how I ever had time to work.” – from almost every retired man I’ve ever spoken to.
Just for another issue to include, we have a heck of a time with time. More later.
