Why Am I “Too Busy?”
Ram is on a roll; this comes from comments and discussion:
Too Busy, part one:
With ADHD –
1. It’s hard to set priorities.
2. I want to do it all.
3. I set good rules but it’s hard to follow them.
4. Life is complicated.
Report O the Day:
I had a good list today and was gonna make a lot of progress. Yeah, right. So of course, my printer broke down. It won’t recognize the network. It’s a stubborn son of a gun and I think it has a mean streak. After I’ve spent most of the day messing with it, I called my son in law for help. He’s on his way. The universe seems to be working against me. And it’s bigger than I am.
Too Busy, part two:
I still contend that “too busy” is a state of mind, not a reality. In fact, I only have one thing to do now. Do this post. And post it, of course. Oh, yeah, and wait for my son in law. But if I get this post done, and posted, and my printer fixed, I can call the day a success and save the rest of the list for tomorrow. Nothing is that urgent or critical. Urgent and critical are mostly ADHD feelings, rarely a valid picture.
Focus on doing this post and take my own advice from above; nothing is urgent and critical.
Teaser O the Day:
I do have a little bit of new ADHD research and I’ve decided to do a post on the scientific method just in case a few of you are not entirely familiar with it. Of course, science has fallen out of favor in some quarters as some people are sure that their gut instincts are more valid than the results of research in spite of their lack of education and knowledge but since I am not, like them, a genius, I still pretty much go with the science, although with caution and a little bit of skepticism.
Yikes! O the Day:
My son in law just called. He took the dogs for a walk prior to coming here and they were attacked and two are at the animal hospital. The wounds don’t look critical. I don’t think the printer will get fixed today. Glad the son in law and the dogs are OK. See, I told you.
