Is being in a hurry an integral part of ADHD?
Being in a hurry is unpleasant and inefficient. It is also not based on reality but it’s an attitude. The attitude generates the feeling, which generates the behavior, or perhaps the behavior generates the feeling?
Anyway, that’s the way I feel most of the time, in a hurry, even if there is no reason. I do try to manage situations so that I’m less likely to get that attitude.
Was in a hurry to get to church this Sunday. Pressure. Why? What if I’m five minutes late? God won’t be mad and the world will probably keep turning. There are worse disasters than being five minutes late to church.

Hurry ist the one thing I usually am not on. But only because I live in the almost constant fear of missing an important appointment and plan to leave half an hour earlier than I need. I’m usually very punctual (I cut myself some slack when I’m meeting people who are unpunctual themselves). If I could compare the feeling of my obsessing with being late with the feeling of being in a hurry, I’d say they’re about the same.

Ram – you are blessed by not having the “hurry” gene. But I have wasted a lot of time getting to meetings on time. But now with the smart phone that time is no longer wasted. The leaving half an hour early is another great strategy.
thank you as always for your great comments
My son runs on “Chandler time”. I totally understand.
