“You need to learn how to think, not what to think” – Jim Livingstone
Your personal power is directly linked to your ability to influence your thoughts.
This week’s ADHD Advantage
Rebelliousness can be a catalyst for positive social change, promoting equality, justice, and human rights.
Your ADHD gives you a unique perspective on the world and is not limited by conventional thinking.
It allows you to analyze situations from different angles and can lead to deeper insights, the discovery of alternative solutions, and the avoidance of neurotypical groupthink.
Your rebelliousness should be balanced with empathy, respect for others, and a consideration of the potential short and long-term consequences of your actions. good luck with this last one.. LOL
This week’s ADHD Challenge
Your Limited Memory
Your ADHD brain’s executive function has a compromised memory and retrieval system.
This can be frustrating and inconvenient, to say the least. At its worst, you continue to make the same mistakes or errors in judgement because you don’t remember the lessons from past experiences.
Your brain has various levels of memory. The first level holds the most current information and may last from a few minutes to a couple of hours.
After two or three days, this information goes to the next level.
Then after a while, if you don’t act on or use the information, it moves to the next levels and so on, with some information remaining dormant for decades until something triggers your memory recall.
“Your memory is a vital key to your future”. — Jim Livingstone
- To strengthen and reinforce your memory, take action as soon as possible on ideas or information that resonates with you.
- Repeat your important ideas and information every day and take some form of action on them.
- Go over your major goals and dreams every two to three days.
- Create a PowerPoint or similar memory information retrieval system.
- Print out a copy of the information you will need over the next week or month.
- Update your list each month.
Don’t Set Your Dreams Aside.
Yes, you have bills to pay and maybe a family to support but don’t forget why you are doing it.
You say to yourself that you will work temporarily and put your dreams on hold. Don’t do that!
You will forget about your original purpose, and it will gradually drift away.
No matter how tired, cold, or hungry you are, do something for at least twenty minutes every day to keep your purpose, your dream, alive.
Practise persistence over perfection.
“It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something.” – Winston S. Churchill
