Ways To Live With ADHD — ADHD Tip O the Day 827

I find that I don’t have new tips and strategies recently, because somehow, I’m not screwing up.
I find that I am, without a plan, strategy, or intention, doublechecking everything.

I ask:
How could this go wrong? Did I really do it right? Will I be able to read it later? Do they really have our reservation?
How could it fall off or get knocked off?
Check and question, and then check it again. But then here’s the trick, I’m checking again, the third time. This seems to be working pretty well.
However, it seems to me very much a sign of aging. Young people just don’t have the time or energy or inclination to live like this. They just blaze ahead full speed.
But I think I’m  probably more effective this way.  The time spent checking and rechecking is less than the time it would take to do it over or to clean up the mess.  And it’s just nice to not be always screwing up.
Anyway, that’s what I’m doing, and it seems to be working.

Still, I need to see what my wife will comment on this.

Irrelevant Note O the Day:

My doctor told me to eat more protein, and I’ve been doing very well at that.  But I just realized that she meant instead of, not in addition to.

Personal Note O the Day:

I’m considering making a new agenda:  Don’t make any more agendas.

    I confess I never think about how it might go wrong, much to my chagrin at times…
