Conventional wisdom would have adults with ADHD believing that we need to follow a certain path to manage and thrive with adult ADHD. But as you may have uncovered by now, following conventional wisdom and accepted and unquestioned principles, is often not the best path to thriving with adult ADHD.
Jeff Copper from DIG Coaching is back to discuss the concept of conventional wisdom and ADHD and how we can challenge certain thinking.
Jeff talks about the book “Breaking the Rules” which can describe the theme of this discussion on the podcast. Oftentimes adults with ADHD need to break the rules and one great example is understanding that we cannot always fix our weaknesses. Accepting this concept can provide an opportunity for growth in our ADHD journey.
Jeff and Dave talked about the importance of placing ourselves in roles that are a great fit. one example is choosing a career or a job that allows us to utilize our strengths.
Jeff also indicates that the more clarity we have in our lives and in our daily habits, the more motivation we can experience.
Managing our ADHD can be challenging at certain times in our lives but Jeff and Dave caution everyone to not fall into what Jeff calls a sea of strategies. We must stop drowning in the latest greatest strategy or technique to manage our adult ADHD.
