In Ep. 21 we talked about camouflaging ADHD, but what about when you decide NOT to mask it? There are times when disclosing it is important—even necessary from an ethical standpoint. But in other situations, the decision is much more complex. How have you approached the decision? In this episode, we talk about the reasons to disclose (or not), ways…
 
2020 is, as Dana puts it, “a dumpster fire of a year.” We decided to take a break from our regular episodes to insert this conversation about the unprecedented difficulties we’re all facing in 2020. In fact, even people who don’t have ADHD are experiencing symptoms—some of them for the first time in their lives. A recent Twitter thread from Dr. Est…
 
Last week, we discussed how to tell when you need to get help with your ADHD and the various types of help available. But how do you know when to hide your ADHD symptoms and how to go about camouflaging them effectively? Sometimes, it makes sense to keep certain people from knowing that you have ADHD. We’ll discuss the decision about telling or not…
 
Our ADHD symptoms can be more intense at times and less severe at others. And it’s been said that ADHD is a bit like a continuum … some cases are mild and others are extreme.

Are you drawn toward elaborate systems and complex processes? Do you find yourself frustrated by the over-complicated structures you’ve set up in your life? This is no surprise! ADHD tends to cause us to be attracted to complexity, because the more complicated things are, the more interesting and shiny they are to our under-stimulated brains! The p…
 
If you have ADHD, one of the most important things you can do in your professional life is automate the important so that it gets done reliably! This is also true for tasks that are repetitive or otherwise susceptible to getting missed, overlooked, forgotten, or delayed due to procrastination. David shares some of the most important items every bus…
 
In recent episodes, we’ve talked about building a more ideal working life — one that’s suited to you and your particular strengths — as well as learning to avoid ADHD landmines. Both of those involve offloading tasks and surrounding yourself with people who can help you in areas that you’re naturally weak. But being effective at working with people…
 
Last week, we talked about building an ADHD-friendly working life and zeroed in on practical ways to focus on your strengths. This episode is the flip side of that strategy: aggressively avoiding the ways in which your particular ADHD tendencies will predictably cause problems for you. We’re calling those “ADHD landmines.” Our weak areas bring us d…
 
Ever wake up and find yourself in a business or job that’s a constant struggle? Things just don’t seem to be a good fit anymore? You’re not alone.
