There is no such thing as the perfect plan or action to produce the perfect result. Sometimes I have so many things going on in my head and in my life that I don’t know where to begin. This often leads me towards a strong tendency to try and do everything perfectly: “If I can’t do all of these things perfectly than I won’t do them at all.”
This small statement is the foundation upon which I have built my most successful coaching principles. If you are not aware of what you pay attention to on a daily basis, you will not be aware of what is growing or not growing in your life.
Light is everywhere.
Part of the journey with my own ADHD was discovering specific rituals I do when I want to ignite my internal writer.
One of them is exercise.
It has a way of slowing down the velocity of my thoughts, especially when I am having a brainstorming session that usually results in a bombardment of creative ideas that can be very difficult to process.
When you believe that every action you take must have a perfect outcome and you don’t achieve that outcome, you will automatically label it a failure.
In many of our teleclasses at the ADD Coach Academy we have intense discussions about the pervasive ignorance and lack of understanding of ADHD. This not only occurs in the health care professions and public sector, it is also very prevalent in our academic institutions, from primary schools to universities, where there is a lack of support for the natural ways human beings learn.
Recent sleep research at the University of California, Berkley reveals some important findings about you and your brain.
When you watch a movie you have the power to suspend reality and imagine anything you want: nothing is impossible. You can even be a demigod with ADHD and dyslexia.
In the debut movie “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” Percy is a 17 year old high school boy with ADHD and dyslexia struggling with school, and getting into lots of trouble. Unbeknownst to him, he is also the son of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea.
The character Percy illustrates the real-life paradox facing individuals with ADHD and dyslexia. He has unique strengths that are way above average but also has some noticeable weaknesses. I have worked as an ADHD coach for over 10 years, and found often that there is no middle ground for ADDers. Percy’s ability to get things done in some situations is superior, and in other situations is very inferior.

We live in a performance-oriented world. It’s also a world where too much emphasis is placed on identifying a person’s weaknesses and then focusing on improving the performance of those weaknesses.
This negative focus can take its toll on a person’s innate strengths, which may be downplayed or overlooked in the quest for “improvement.”
Hello my name is David Giwerc. I am the Founder and President of the ADD Coach Academy. Since becoming a coach in 1994, I have been privileged and honored to witness thousands of adults and families with AD/HD take amazing leaps and bounds to become more fulfilled human beings.
This only can begin to happen when you become educated about your own ADHD. I don’t mean a general, textbook education of ADHD with medical language about the brain and the corresponding imbalance of neurochemicals. Unfortunately, that is how most health care professionals may have explained ADHD to you.
The kind of education that will empower people with ADHD to move forward is the kind of customized, individualized education that encourages you to explore and discover the specific situations where your own impairing challenges (inattention, impulsivity and hyper activity) of ADHD have impeded your ability to move forward.
