Identify the problem
Every time I put wine glasses in the dishwasher, no matter how I do it, they break.
That’s just part of my ADD ADHD.
Make a strategy
I do not put wine glasses in the dishwasher anymore. I rinse them and set them on the counter for my wife to take care of.
Make it a rule
Do Not Put Wine Glasses In The Dishwasher!
Make it a habit
I never put wine glasses in the dishwasher.
Now that it’s a habit, I don’t even have to think about it anymore.
Most of life consists of little things
This is just one example of the kind of little things that can pile up to make life more aggravating and difficult if we have ADD ADHD. When we can identify a problem, and apply the principle – problem, strategy, rule, habit – then our life does go better.
Puryear’s second corollary to Murphy’s Law
If it can be broken, I’ll do it.
One of the reasons I love Spanish -“Se rompio’ el vaso.” The glass broke itself.
