Anyone else listening in on the "Succeed with ADHD" Telesummit?

So I just listened to the first call of the Telesummit and the guest speaker was Alan Brown from ADD Crusher and got probably one of the most important brain hacks of all regarding “Is this what I’m doing now?” and learning how to stay on track with tasks by labelling interruptions.

From not knowing how to use sticky notes effectively ( its easy to write on them and stick them aimlessly everywhere but are they really helping) I have just found how they can become my best friend.

I then went to his website, read a few of his blogs on “brain hacks” “mindfulness” and “thought processes” and got even more valuable information that I think may work for me such as ” I have to do” versus “I will do” and how that thought process changes the dynamics of the task and makes it easier to start.

Now I have a few hours to practice and “set” it in my brain before the next speaker

Is anyone else listening in and what are they learning so far that has been helpful?


OOOH I missed it. I’ve attended a few of the tele seminars and they each are helpful. I have a email system that helps me stay organized called ROLLOUT. So all these emails go in there and I never see them anymore.  Thanks I will listen to the replay of the seminar.

I’ve got all the speakers/guests set on google calendar and alarms set so I wont miss any of them, ( Its currently 4 AM here in Australia so yes I’m keen! haha)

I think the next one in an hour or so is “Money Management in Action: Step-by-Step Tips for Common Financial Dilemmas” with CAROL GIGNOUX

I love how they are 3 hours apart so we can process the information!

Very excited for the next 5 days!

I’ve got them on my calendar as well! I loved the first one, also. I’m going to check out Alan Brown’s blog. Thanks, Jerry!
