Word vs ADHD

Microsoft Word is a wonderful application and a royal pain in the neck. It has many tricks, both good and bad, many traps and many benefits. The learning curve for me has been very steep, and continues to be.

I made a rule to write at least five pages when I first turn on my computer in the morning, and this is becoming a habit. And once I start, I usually go ahead and do more pages. So every day, no matter what, I have at least gotten that much done.

The more important part is I don’t have to keep relearning the intricacies of Word when I miss a few days. So the book is coming along. I am hopefully looking to publish at the end of March. Hooray!

I hope.


Identify a problem- I’m struggling with Word

Make a strategy- use it every day

Make that a rule – first thing every morning

Make that a habit – first thing every morning, automatically.  The anchor is turning on the computer.

Also- plug away in small steps and you eventually get there.

Personal Note O the Day:

I’m also struggling with Facebook and WordPress, more steep learning curves, but let’s focus on one problem at a time – the Rule of One.

Second Personal Note O the Day:

I had scheduled to do this blog tomorrow, but here it is now! I am a day ahead of schedule. A rare and wonderous thing. Feels good!

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 amazon.com, or smashwords.com (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book).
