I am a project manager. This sounds completely insane for someone with ADD, but it isn’t. Project management is dealing with crises or planning how to avoid crises. There is always some kind of drama going on every day. The paperwork sucks and the tedious detail of the paperwork is maddening. So I find myself looking forward to the next crisis.

My wife and I are trying to get me a position with FEMA (in the US it is Federal Emergency Management Administration). We both laughed about that one, because I have made a career of fixing companies crises and then moving on because I get bored. At FEMA, I would be constantly going from crisis to crisis, running operations(no different from projects).
