From “Translating ADHD,” my new favorite ADHD podcast:
What do these have in common?
Your “big” work goals;
“They matter only to you. The rewards are far off in the future. These require consistent action over time. “
~Cam Gott, PCC Coach; Shelly Collins, productivity coach.
My new favorite podcast is the one Cam and Shelly have created together. I like it because they are focused each episode on one aspect of ADHD.
I love Cam’s teaching style (he was one of my coaching instructors). I enjoy the in depth, intellectual AND practical approach, the conversational rhythm and their senses of humor. Example: Cam commented that he calls these “big goals” …
Goals as sleeping dogs? You can imagine why, but tune into this episode instead, “ADHD and Doing What Matters,” to hear Cam’s ideas. Plus, if you like his metaphor, wow, could you have some fun with that, as you work on any of those big goals I listed above!
For example: How big is the litter? How many should I play with at once? How do I wake up one but not the others? How do I wake up any of them? When do they need feeding?
Cam and Shelly also talk about people with ADHD and sensing time, the Eisenhower/Covey matrix of prioritizing your work and how to use it if you have ADHD where “everything” is urgent because a deadline is required, shiny objects … which set off a chain reaction of other tasks, urgency vs. importance, reacting versus choosing your next task. They’ll educate you on why this is, and give some examples of how to handle these and manage yourself to them.
So, if you fall into any of these groups, check out their podcast.
- Do you have ADHD? Or ADHD like symptoms?
- Not living up to your potential?
- Live with someone who has ADHD and it’s causing conflicts?
- Work with people who have ADHD or seem to?
You’ll be enlightened. You’ll learn strategies and what’s causing the issue. And then what to DO.
I hope by sharing this resource, I’ll be helping to educate and you’ll hear some great solutions to try if you want to work on some of these strategies.
