You're busy enough as it is. But what happens when you're offered a new project, grand opportunity, great chance to show off? How do you know if you can afford to say... yes?
We spend a lot of time building gates and systems to protect ourselves from distraction of ADHD. But, what might we be losing at the expense of saying No?
Today, we’re talking all about boundaries. These are boundaries around your time, and the things you’re probably doing (and probably doing them unintentionally) that end up being destructive to your time and your ability to thrive long-term.
We’ve had some great questions and feedback on our last few episodes around ideal schedules. This week, we’re taking this concept a bit further. How do you take a new strategy and implement it to turn it into a lifestyle? How do you handle less desirable tasks — gating and focusing even around the stuff you really don’t want to do? How do you decide what to work on first? These are deceptively simple questions with answers that we often make more complicated than we need. We’ll do our best to untangle them on the show this week!
Tis the season! Now that we’ve crested Halloween, the roller coaster of the holiday season is ramping up to full speed. It’s easy to let the overwhelm of the season get the better of us, but if you’re struggling with ADHD, that overwhelm can lead to stagnation of a much more serious sort.
For those struggling with ADHD, the instinct to help others might just be a self-destructive pattern when it comes to living an organized lifestyle. It feels good to help, but without a keen awareness of what is already on your plate, and the commitments you've already made, the good feeling that comes from saying "yes" might just end up letting others down when you can't make good on your promises. This week on the show, Nikki Kinzer and Pete Wright talk about where this natural instinct to please comes from, and how practice saying "no" might just end up freeing you to help more people in a smarter way!
Take a look around you. Before long, you'll see them: distractions. Maybe it's your family. Maybe your email. Maybe your neighbor. Whoever they are, they're all competing for your precious time. It's your job to keep them under control! This week on the show, Nikki Kinzer and Pete Wright talk about the importance of setting boundaries and protecting yourself from all the things vying for your attention!
