” I think self-awareness is probably the most important thing towards being a champion.” – Billie Jean King.

Personal Power

Awareness is a powerful tool that allows you to tap into your personal power and make positive changes in your lives.

When you cultivate a sense of awareness, you become attuned to your thoughts, emotions, and actions.

This heightened consciousness allows you to recognize patterns, identify limiting beliefs, and respond to life’s challenges with greater clarity and intention.

Awareness is a learnable skill.

This week’s ADHD Advantage


ADHD Neurodiversity

Neurodivergent individuals naturally approach problem-solving in unique ways, considering multiple perspectives and alternative solutions.
Your varied ADHD cognitive styles can lead to more diverse and comprehensive problem-solving processes, finding solutions that might have been overlooked by a more neurotypical approach.
  Both you and society can benefit by recognizing and embracing the strengths and unique perspectives that your neurodivergence brings to
the table.

This week’s ADHD Challenge


Sh*t Memory

I remember very little of what I read and learned.

I have so much information, but forget I have it or remember where I put it.

My level of frustration is off the scale.

I regularly research articles and lose them in my system.


“Not only is my short-term memory terrible, but so is my short-term memory”.



  • Implement daily routines and structure:  
  • I have simplified my filing system and duplicate files if I am not sure I’ll remember where I put them.
  • I am going to use a neurotypical assistant to resort the files and see how that goes.
  • Keep essential items in designated places and increase my awareness.
  • Slow down and narrow my field of focus. 
  • I am going to look into working with an ADHD coach, to help provide guidance and personalized strategies.

Weekly Tip


We all get caught up in our daily dramas, making mountains out of molehills.

Take the time to reframe any issues by asking these questions

Is it life-threatening? Are you fighting to survive in a war zone?

Do you have a terminal illness?

Do you have a warm bed to sleep in, warm food to eat and hot running water?

Can you pursue your dreams tomorrow?

If you do, you are doing OK and so far in front of the majority of the world’s eight billion people. 

Be grateful for what you have, while you pursue what you want.


Life is 10 per cent what happens and 90 per cent how you see it.” ― Jim Livingstone
