I didn’t listen
I’m only on draft number three in writing the new book, which includes some on adult ADD ADHD .
In Word, I cut a very large segment from one document to paste into another doc. Before I got it pasted I must’ve done something else, because when I went to paste it, it was gone. A very large segment. Gone.
I remembered a window had popped up, “You have just placed a large amount of data on the clipboard: do you want to save it for other operations?”
Just before I clicked no, I heard the voice in my head saying, “Don’t do that.”
Clicked no anyway
Gone. Tried lots of things; really gone.
ADD ADHD strategies:
1.Listen to the little voice! It’s trying to help.
2. Use Copy, not Cut. Can delete later.
After church, went out to pick the rest of the peaches. The little voice said I shouldn’t do that in my church clothes. Ignored it. Got away with it this time! Think it’s a trick to get me to keep ignoring voice; catastrophe will follow.
The good news is I have been using the strategy of frequently clicking save, so I hadn’t lost as much as I originally feared. Will keep using strategy.
especially for students, but not just for students. We all got it.
