“Everyone has the right to be stupid. Some just abuse the privilege”. – Dave Barry


Personal Power

Your personal power has the potential to spark positive change in your community and beyond.
Leading by example, you can inspire others to step into their own power and make a difference, creating a ripple effect that spreads inspiration.
Personal power enables you to reach your potential, fostering personal growth and self-actualization.
By recognizing and utilizing your ADHD strengths, you can engage in activities that bring joy and a sense of purpose.

This week’s ADHD Advantage


Your ADHD Enthusiasm

Individuals with ADHD often exhibit high levels of energy and enthusiasm.
You can bring passion and infectious excitement to projects, activities, and social interactions.

Your enthusiasm can be contagious and inspire others.

Enthusiasm often goes hand in hand with an open mind and a sense of curiosity.

By approaching situations with high energy and enthusiasm, you become more receptive to new ideas and perspectives.

This week’s ADHD Challenge



Your ADHD mind is either ON or OFF nothing in between – no middle ground.

ON supports your goals and dreams, you are optimistic, creative, and loving everything in life.

OFF encourages depression, tiredness, zero focus, and zero interest in anything. You are lost in your ADHD mind maze, leading to instability and mental shutdown.

If you want to get a lot done, you must learn how to be in the ON position 80% of the time. Take control of the switch.


“Begin to free yourself at once by doing all that is possible with the means you have, and as you proceed in this spirit the way will open for you to do more”. – Robert Collier.

Weekly Tip

Close the Loops

Your ADHD causes you to delay doing things and all these unfinished tasks cause you stress and wastes your physical and mental energy.
If it’s on your mind, your mind isn’t clear. Anything unfinished must be resolved.
It’s a waste of time and energy to keep thinking about something that you make no progress on.
Start closing the open loops by asking yourself.
What’s the next action I can take to close a loop? Do that immediately.

You have to design your life around your interests and set up your own brand of novelty, passions, challenges and rewards. Use your brilliant imagination to transform boring tasks you must do into an exciting game.


“Remove the mental clutter until you’re only left with what you love, what’s necessary, and what makes you happy.”— Jim Livingstone


About my book notes.

I have read over 500+ books since 1992. Unfortunately, my limited ADHD memory means I forget most of it within a week or two!

I started keeping notes of interest on Word docs for later reference, and I am using these notes as the basis of what I present here.

When I’m reading and come across an inspiring idea or something that I haven’t heard before, or something I want to try, I save it.

That’s all my notes are. I’m not summarizing the book. I’m just saving useful ideas for later recall and use.
