ADHD Spectrum, Mild To Wild

Well, it looked sparkly to me ...

We, as the human race, deal with spectrums all the time. There is the spectrum of intelligence. And within that there is the spectrum of so called normal intelligence.
There is the spectrum of wealth, from extreme poverty to the one percent. There's the spectrum of physical health from terminally ill to in the pink....

ADHD holding me back? How?

Penalty: One Lifetime for Holding!

The Shotgun Method Of Task Management

To do and to don't list

I'm going to try looking at life differently for a while, maybe even permanently. I'm going to look at things backwards … kind of, sort of, maybe.

I'm going to admit that I'm incompetent at prioritizing my jobs. I'm going to admit it and try to approach my life in a way that will make my incompetence irrelevant. I'm going...
