ADHD Productivity & Time

327: Organizing What You Learn

You’re working hard to learn and grow, to discover new things and be a better person, right? But in that process, how do you catalog and internalize all things you’re learning so that you’ll be able to recall them later and use them when you need them most … even when you don’t know when that will be?

309: Two Things You Need to Know to Make ANY Routine Successful

If you’ve been listening to the show for awhile, you know we love our routines. In the ADHD biz, routines are the gold standard for making change in your life. Running late? Better come up with a new routine! Lost your keys again? Better routine! But here’s the trick: just because routines are simple does not mean they are easy.

307: Get One More Project DONE — Fight the Dog Days of Summer and ADHD!

ADHD Project Management The ADHD Podcast

As some parts of the country are just cresting back-to-school season, most of us are languishing in the final days of a hot summer. If you’ve been industrious at all, the projects you really want to have taken on are likely done. But what about the last few undesirables? You know those projects that take the extra push because you don’t want to do them, the environment isn’t conducive to doing them, and you’re exhausted from all the other great stuff you’ve been doing — and living with ADHD makes tackling those projects so much harder!

This week on the show, we’ve got some ideas for getting out of the rut to get one last project wrapped before the summer ends.

Finally, we mentioned a project Pete recently completed about Rory, the young man facing a big transition as he graduates from middle school and moves to high school. We hope you'll take a few minutes to watch it. 

Rory Neely is enormously charismatic. He's warm and kind, shakes hands with gusto, and revels in flags of all sizes. He lives with Down syndrome and autism, and thanks to the love and effort of his family and educational support team, he serves as a symbol of life as he moves into a future so many never expected him to experience.

296: Don't Fall Into the ADHD Shame Spiral!

You start things, and then you don’t finish them. It’s the nature of being human to fall off the productivity bandwagon from time to time, but when you’re living with ADHD, what comes with unfinished tasks and projects is a feeling of overwhelm, avoidance, shame, and guilt that can cause you to drift into the shame spiral. Don’t fall for it! The ADHD Shame Spiral is a lie! This week on the show, we’re talking about the shame spiral, and how to break up your work in such a way that you’re finishing as much as you start, and you can celebrate every single accomplishment!

285: Learning to Pivot around your Limiting Beliefs

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.

276: Digital — Text Automation & ADHD: Clarity, Consistency, and Accuracy

From email to filling in forms to reports and more, even if you don’t consider yourself a writer, you likely work with more words than you would ever count. This week, we’re talking about how you can make yourself more efficient with the words you sling, and more consistent and accurate in spite of your ADHD, too.

274: ADHD & The Workplace — Prioritizing & Finding Focus

Today’s show is all about priorities at work. It’s a question we see often in coaching and it’s made immeasurably more challenging thanks to the complex human organism that is “the office!” But you can tackle this challenge and make your life better in the process by developing three muscles: The Priority Muscle, The Focus Muscle, and The Distractions Muscle.

266: Impulsivity & ADHD

Impulsivity is a part of the ADHD experience that offers few upsides. It represents the source of distraction, social disruption, and lack of focus that can plague so many of us. We received an email this week from a listener working through email impulsivity at work and his story — and we hope our conversation around it — proves supportive for anyone listening who is living with impulsive behavior challenges.
