When we ask ourselves the question, “Who do I want to be?,” many of us with ADHD include characteristics similar to these:
- Someone who can be relied upon to do what I said
- A person who is more consistent about getting things done
- A person of action and not just words
And isn’t it frustrating when something prevents you from being that person?! Sometimes there are subtle things going on, but often we encounter things that absolutely destroy our productivity.
Recently, Dana asked her newsletter subscribers to write back to tell her what activities, tasks, objects, etc., hurt their productivity. She calls these things ADHD Productivity Kryptonite.
Are some of them hurting you? Chances are, your list is unique.
But either way, you need a Kryptonite defense system! Good news: Dana has one for you!

With great respect for your efforts to educate, I am writing to you. I am 71 and have a son who is 34. We both have ADD. I am Always looking for motivation to focus better. This is the 2nd podcast I have listened to and I liked Dana’s example of the Bathrobe as being Kryptonite. Overall you two are more like Kryptonite! There was only a few minutes of practical information. Since you, David, are interested in Neuroscience, I think it would wonderful if you provide more information about the ADHD brain. I don’t think people would mind if you made the podcast shorter and get more quickly to the real content of your show. Sincerely, Suzanne
THANK YOU very much for your note! We are always looking to improve the content of the show and feedback like this is hugely valuable to us. On behalf of Dana and myself, we appreciate you letting us know your thoughts!
And I’d like to encourage you to stay tuned. We’ve got some exciting changes coming up that I think you’ll appreciate! Also if you haven’t stumbled across them yet, we’ve done a few “neuronerd” episodes in the past that are heavily focused on the ADHD brain. Just put the word, “neuronerd,” in the search box here on the site and they should come up for you. (If you’d prefer some links instead, just reply back here and we’ll link you up to some.)
