Your uniqueness is also your creativity.
It helps you think outside the box and aligns with your strengths/values.
It helps you with problem solving.
What should you do if you have ADHD? The answer is often revealed by understanding who you are. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, ADHD coach Jeff Copper interviews master certified coach David Giwerc, MCAC, MCC, and Founder and President of ADD Coach Academy.
Jeff identifies what he attends to when he's coaching people to help them understand who they are and what they are all about.
David talks about how he uses character strengths to help individuals do the same.
Then they compare their different approaches to understand the contrast between the way Jeff and David think based on “who” they are and use that to explain what careers have worked for them in the past and how they're very different. If you are curious about “who” you are, you'll want to listen.
Here is an article where Caroline Maguire, PCC, ACCG, and Director of ADDCA's ADHD Coaching for Families program, provides a solid list of strategies to improve the management of your brain and activate your executive functions. She also mentions medications and what I like to call "the Pill does not give you the skills." However it can put you on a level playing field so that you can use the strategies Caroline has identified.
