The Key to Follow-Through: Intention vs. Attention

It’s a story I hear every single day, and it’s the story I used to live myself. A story I could have written! Day in and day out.

What will you do with the Gift of Time? (aka “Confessions of an ADD Coach”!)

It’s a matter of perspective but, if you think about it, this extra day in a leap-year February is really a gift of time! It’s kind of like finding cash in a card from your Aunt when you didn’t expect it, or the unexpected crisp $20 bill in the pocket of your jeans. What will […]

Down to the Wire AGAIN! (aka the “Power of Purposeful Procrastination”)

Deadlines. We all have them: at work, at home, and in every aspect of our lives, from time clocks to taxes and bills to birthdays. For some of us, the pressure of a deadline can be a good motivator. We’ve all heard someone say, “I work best under pressure!” This can feel especially true for […]

Getting Back on Track with ADHD / ADD
