@seabassd I’ve never heard of him. But I agree that ADHD can become an excuse. I’ve used it myself. “It’s not my fault, it’s the ADD.” Once you start blaming the ADD it’s easy to sit around procrastinating and let everything slide.

But you’re right that the “just do it” attitude doesn’t work either. I’m feeling kind of down right now because I keep telling myself that I’m going to get going and “just do it” and every day I fail.

I think the answer lies somewhere in between. You can’t just sit back and say its the ADD. But you can’t force yourself to just do it either. You have to figure out how to work with the ADHD.
