ADHD Leaders and Entrepreneurs
Intent vs. Action problems
I thought I’d ask here, since I would think being Entrepreneurs and all you guys are more on the level of what I call “high-functioning ADDers”. LOL We suffer the afflictions but have seemed to find ways over the years to deal with them.
My biggest immediate problem from my perspective is my desire to do certain things versus “finding the time” and planning them into my life. The two biggest examples are writing, which I would like to do as a career and exercising.
Right now I could probably be doing either one besides this! Writing causes me grief because even though hubby is supportive of me, I know I have things I need to help him with in regards to our current business that provides income and so I freeze up. I frankly am not a huge fan of invoicing and doing other paperwork, so I will procrastinate. But instead of procrastinating doing writing, I am so stressed or something I can’t be creative! It should be noted I have upheaval in my life right now with extra houseguests and the possibility of losing my home. BUT I hate that I am just ‘wandering’ and I am sick of feeling that way.
The exercise thing, well, there’s just always ‘something’ to get done, right?!
Any suggestions on how I can break out of this, or does anyone think something else is going on?! I am hypothyroid and medicated for that, plus I take Adderall and my last blood work just done was fine. This is why I am starting to think it’s just ‘mental’.
