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.

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.

248: Setting and Living your Priority

Today on the show we’re digging into just one aspect of the book Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg Mckeown: Priority. This is the act that puts constraints around our ADHD, allowing us to see the forest for the trees, but to exercise our focus on a tree, too. We talk about the power of focus and clarity, how living in accordance with a clear priority strategy can lead to greater productivity and balance, and how developing your ideal weekly schedule can help you truly visualize the hidden opportunities that exist in your own personal sea of time.
