Goals, Goals and more Goals.
Like Kovalev says in his hockey video “From the shots come the goals.”
If you have a hard time with setting goals it takes practice but the benefits are huge.
You mentioned momentum and that it’s hard to get going. That’s the whole thing with momentum, it’s difficult to get something big moving, but once you do it’s also really hard to stop.
Lou Holtz (who ever he is) said:
“Ability is what you’re capable of doing.
Motivation determines what you can do,
Attitude determines how well you can do it.”
So think about those 3 factors and how they fit you and what you are doing.
It sounds like you have the Ability and want to get to Motivation, but attitude is in the way.
Very much the case with me, when my attitude is negative.
Sleep and exercise is the best treatment for ADHD, imho. The meds help, but don’t fix the problem.
Good luck all.
