Inspiration comes from the most unlikely of places this week, yet sets the stage for an important conversation. Whether you’re living with ADHD or not, how often do you ask yourself how you show up in your life? Do you have a clear internal understanding for what it means that you are present? Do you stop to think about what you’re leaving behind? It’s these questions that build the foundation for our conversation today, but certainly not where it ends!

Today, we’re talking about the stories we tell ourselves to justify our feelings. Sometimes, they help us to rationalize our own place in the world. But most often, these stories cement in us the belief that the reason we can’t change — finish a project, move ahead at work, create fulfilling relationships — is somehow based in fact.
This week on the show, a story of technology failure. No, it’s not the story of some tool that doesn’t work for us. It’s not the story of some new digital planner that has a bug.
