With ADHD, Everything Can Be Difficult
there are strategies to make things less difficult.
Last post, I said that my job is difficult, but I love it.
What helps me is using the power of words and keeping focus on my attitude.
ADHD and the Power of Words
Today is Saturday. I get to go to work on Monday. I get to. I never say to myself, or to anyone else, “I have to go to work.” No, I get to go.
Research shows that ceertain words – “have to,” “must,” “should,” evoke powerful unconscious anti-authority resistance in most of us. This makes it harder to do the task. ‘Don’t you be telling me what to do!’
ADHD and Attitude
I think that’s enough for today. Next time I plan to write about how to work with attitude to make your tasks, like my job, for example, more enjoyable. Hope you’ll enjoy it.
You don’t have to say “have to.”
