Procrastinating? Write about it!
As many of you know, I work full time in addition to my work as an ADHD Coach. Recently I was procrastinating on a project and was really stuck. I didn’t know where to start or how to get myself moving. I took the first step by talking it over with my coach Courtney Welch who helped me come up with a new strategy. I’m happy to tell you that it works! I started each work day writing about this project for 10 – 15 minutes. The only rule was that I couldn’t turn on my computer before writing. There was no structure to the writing; I just wrote about every aspect of the project, drew some pictures and made some charts. After about four days of writing, I had a breakthrough and I was actually able to start the project. Happily, I’m nearly done and think the end result is going to be excellent. Want to try this strategy to break through your procrastination? Use these questions as thought-starters: What is the aim of the project? What is the big picture? What are a few unanswered questions about the project? Let me know how it goes!
I recently had a chance to interview Alan Brown from ADD Crusher and he shared some great tips for mindfulness that have immediate impact – what he calls “practical Zen brain-hacks”. My favorite technique is to take 10 seconds to meditate. 10 seconds! WE all have time for that don’t we?
This is learn-it-today-do-it-tomorrow material, and shared in a fun, interactive conversation that will be of value to individuals as well as ADHD coaches looking for fresh strategies to help their clients.
