At Least We Can Count?

At my last real job, I’d stop by the gas station for donuts if I was already running late. People don’t yell at you when you bring donuts.

One Chance in Seven…

It’s fun to be scatterbrained early, but not to be scatterbrained late.

The Cost of Hyperfocus

…or something like that.

The worst part is when Verizon sends me a text that says “you’re about to go over your allotment,” but I’m so focused on whatever I’m doing that I ignore all text messages.

I get no kick from finish work.

Good Intentions vs. Good Sleep

Me at 9 pm: I'm going to bed early tonight. Me at midnight: .... Me at 5:30: Is that the sun?

If I want to go to sleep early, I have to set AT LEAST one alarm to remind myself, one hour ahead of actually eyes-shut.

I used to say “one hour ahead of lights-out”, but that was before the whole internet opened for business by my bedside via my phone.

Do you have trouble getting yourself to bed on time? If you need a penalty-based incentive system, I’d love to help you meet your goals!. (I can also provide reward-based incentives, even though those are slightly less fun (for me, ha!).)

For more info, here’s a special offer for monthly coaching and cajoling.

“Don’t Talk To Me…”

ADHD self-awareness while working

“Don’t talk to me. I have no self-control and will talk to you for 3 hours and achieve nothing. Thanks. I love you.”

I love this guy.

Not ADHD but Toilet Paper — Who Knew?

“Mary was so fidgety she couldn’t concentrate… I was shocked to find that harsh toilet tissue was the cause.”

“I was worried when Mary’s teacher told me she was restless in school and couldn’t seem to concentrate. When I asked Mary what was the matter she complained of an itching. I asked a friend’s advice at Mother’s Club that afternoon. She said it was probably caused by harsh or impure toilet tissue, and recommended ScotTissue. So I bought some ScotTissue. It looked very pure and soft. In a few days Mary’s trouble had entirely disappeared.”

Adderall + Thomas Jefferson =

“When Ben Franklin gives you some of his Adderall and you write the whole Declaration of Independence in one night.”

Source: adapted from a joke found on the internet. The original joke-writer said the Adderall was from John Locke but that would be anachronistic. Jefferson drafted the Declaration in 1776; John Locke died in 1704.
