How I spend my time; a typical 24 hours:

Screwing around on the computer.              2.5 hours

Sleeping?                                                              ???

Looking for my cell phone, repeatedly.        1.5 hours

Looking for my glasses.                                      .5

Looking for something else that I just had in my hand.          .75 hours

Asking my wife to find the thing that I couldn’t find, several times.      1 hour

Doing something important that I needed to spend 4 hours on.                             1 hour

Doing something that came up unexpectedly and screwed up my whole schedule.   2 hours

Piddling, accomplishing nothing.                     2 hours

Normal basic activities of life.                          2 hours

Time I cannot account for; God only knows where it went.     3- 6 hours

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.

    Thanks Doug! I have not read your tips for a long while and I don’t know why. Something told me to open this email and I am happy that I did. My next step is to go back and reread your book, which was very helpful the first time around over three maybe four or five years ago, and then I fell off the horse. Time for me to get back on. Cheers, Benjamin

    • bj – welcome back! my first principle of human behavior is – if we struggle and struggle with a problem, and finally find a solution, the next thing we do is to stop using the solution. does that fit? I do it all the time.
      glad the book is helpful to you
      thank you for commenting, it’s a contribution to the tribe
