Pete’s Personal Change Tips For ADHD Adults

Things ADDers & those around them often underestimate at their peril

Shame is a huge problem for ADDers
Guilt is a close second
Self esteem is a bigger problem than both
Perfectionism prevents completion
One size never fits all, but that delusion causes a lot of struggle & suffering

Taking Action

Start small
Start easy
Start doable
Start measurable, and measure
Schedule reminders to start
Stretch your comfort level but don’t break it

If you don’t start, don’t start beating yourself up. Judgement + self condemnation = shut down
If you don’t start, get curious instead. Curiosity opens you up, and makes your more resourceful

Set a specific time for doing something, especially a new habit
Reward yourself for doing right
Delegate, pay, barter or stop doing your most boring tasks if possible
What are you willing to say not to, to be able to say yes to doing that new thing?

Do you have some of the problems I help my adult ADHD coaching clients with?
