With Rick Green of Totally ADD
August 22 - The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up Together
With Rick Green
You may have noticed there is a lot going on in the world this year. (Understatement!) Not all of it is good. In fact, some of it's downright scary.
For those of us who are already prone to over-reacting, over-sensitivity, and imagining the worst these are anxious, exhausting times. Sometimes the sense of isolation makes me feel lost and alone. So, let's plan to check in, all together. We can connect, chat, share stories, and perhaps even a few smiles.
I know that in the Patron Live Chat's in our Discord chat rooms, we are providing each other with such wonderful compassion and understanding. Let's continue that, live, together. And perhaps even offer strategies that have helped you stay sane in these crazy times.
Several Patrons have asked if we can do this as a community. Yes! Absolutely! This is a simple but powerful practice. Someone called it 'The Buddy System to the Power of 10.
'Why does it work? That's hard to explain. But it does, especially for those of us with ADHD.
How does it work? That's easy to explain. We each pick a task we've been putting off. (I know, but just pick one)
Decluttering, cleaning, or organizing seem to work best. Then, we all log on. We each share which chore we're taking on. Then we all begin, each of us doing our own thing but all together, online. It can be astonishing to experience what happens. You're not alone. You're in a community of friends, each of us doing something that we had been avoiding. Just being together is powerful. Just knowing you are not alone seems to drain the dread that had us avoiding, procrastinating, or giving up.

ADHD Events 2020
Hello Amazing ADHD Person!
Did you know the traditional gifts for someone celebrating their 10th anniversary are tin, aluminum or diamonds?
Now I know which one I’d choose…but it’s not MY anniversary!
It’s the 10th anniversary of the Succeed with ADHD Virtual Summit hosted by Laurie Dupar of the International ADHD Coach Training Center (iACTcenter) and Coaching for ADHD.
Like me, Laurie would choose diamonds, because that gemstone – the fancy, sparkly, valuable, unique, amazing piece of jewelry – was originally a rock that was put to the test by intense heat and pressure and came out shining.
Very much like people with ADHD!
Just like an exquisite diamond, every person with ADHD has valuable gifts, strengths, talents and attributes that sometimes can’t be seen.
But just because we can’t always see them, it doesn’t mean they aren’t there. And those of us who understand ADHD want you to shine your ADHD brilliance every day!
This is why I am a part of the 10th annual virtual Succeed with ADHD Video Summit being held June 22-26 and hosted by Laurie Dupar, Founder of the International ADHD Coach Training Center (iACTcenter) and Coaching for ADHD, to make sure you have the tools and tips to see the brilliance in yourself, too.

When you are diagnosed with ADHD for the first time in adulthood, there is a lot of history to work through. You question why some things went one way, and why others went another. And even, why some things didn't "go" at all.
I get it. For me, I didn't realize I had symptoms of ADHD until I was late into my twenties.
I didn't know why:
I could do things that were "hard", but not things that were "easy" (or seemed easy to others).
I couldn't do my work until the very last minute (when I was out of time).
I often focused on the needs of others before my own (even if it was detrimental to me).
I put unnecessary stress on myself and those around me when it came to deadlines.
By learning about ADHD and me,
I have become a happier person.
I have found a more peaceful way to be.
I know first hand the power of understanding your unique brain style.
In order to get there, though, I had to go backwards before I could go forwards. I had to learn more about me from a long time ago, in order to define my authentic self now.
Do I have you interested? Take 12 minutes to yourself. Hit a coffee shop, or find a spot where you feel relaxed and able to focus. Maybe even go for a walk.
Grab a pen and paper or open the notes section in your phone...
Write a letter to yourself at a pivotal point in your past.
Perhaps you are eight years old and starting to have challenges in school or heading off to university, or beginning a new stage in your career. Speak to your past self with an awareness of what you now know, and think about what it would have meant to know this information then. Be gentle. The goal here is to find clues about your true self, outside of ADHD, that will guide you along your journey.
What did your past self teach you about your "now" self?
Perhaps you can make peace with hurts of the past, or maybe there is someone you want to talk to, in order to feel better. Do this process your way.
