The nature of the new year gives us the opportunity to reflect on change. Are you setting resolutions that put an unhealthy focus on what you're not able to accomplish? Today on the show: making life design choices that focus on the good you do for yourself and your communities in the new year.

The trick with procrastination is that it’s easy. It’s the easiest thing in the world to succumb to inaction in place of action, especially when action is challenging. But when you let procrastination rule, shame is sure to follow, and the ADHD brain doesn’t work well in those conditions.
This week’s show is inspired by a listener struggling with burnout. On the job or at home, burnout impacts us all at some point in our lives. When you’re struggling with ADHD and facing burnout, the challenge comes when all your trusted accommodations and routines fly out the window.

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, a metaphor. You’re at the top of a hill. There’s a giant ball in front of you, held up by a rock. If you kick that rock, the ball will start rolling down the hill, picking up speed and racing on its way. But you’re struggling with your ADHD. So you look at the ball, you stare at it, and try as you might, you just don’t see the rock that you need to kick.
