Ever find yourself waiting for inspiration to strike before you tackle a project or task? You know it needs to get done, but motivation is in short supply. And you know the longer you wait to get going on it, the worse things get.
Sounds familiar, right? Well this may come as a surprise, but this week we’re talking about using distraction—on purpose—as a tool!
Yep. We know what you’re thinking. We’re so accustomed to thinking about distraction as a negative thing when it comes to grappling with ADHD symptoms. But sometimes it can be just the thing you need!
In this episode, we talk about 2 tools you can use to make things happen: Countdown to Action and Intention Math. These are powerful techniques to add to your arsenal that will help you get moving on things when you’re dragging your feet.
You won’t want to miss this episode!
P.S. Dana adapted the Countdown to Action from ideas contained in The 5 Second Rule: Transform your Life, Work, and Confidence with Everyday Courage by Mel Robbins.
This was amazing, thank you
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment, Tammy! Dana & I really appreciate it!
I’m in awe of your episodes: their structure, well organised content, very practical approach and fun.
I will spread the work in my ADHD community.
Content by ADHD for ADHD is much more valuable than all those books by professional psychologists or doctors that got stuck in the theory. Even if they themselves have the squirrel thing.
Oh my goodness… THANK YOU for taking the time to leave this feedback for us, Marlena! We appreciate it very much! This is precisely why we do this!
And thank you for letting others know about the show. Helping other people find it the highest compliment you can pay us. Cheers!
