Corporations often require employees to review their goals and career development plans in the middle of the calendar year. The intention is to maintain and regain focus on goals and help drive success. Employees meet with their managers to check in on progress and develop action plans to help them move towards their goals. In Human Resources, we call this a “mid-year tune up”. I like the analogy of a tune up to make sure things keep moving and working properly.
The idea of a tune up mid-year is useful for everyone and especially for anyone who has ADHD. If you have a tendency to overcommitt, now is a perfect time to regroup and set the course for a productive close to 2014. Do you tend to lose focus on your priorities during the year? Take time to refocus on the priorities that mean the most to you.
Pull out your goals or resolutions that you made for 2014. They can be personal, family and/or business goals. Review your goals and first review and celebrate the progress you have made. The celebration step is an easy one to skip, but I recommend that you take it seriously. You need to give yourself credit for what you have accomplished.
Review your goals to see what else you need to put in place to achieve your success. Identify action steps that you can take in the next week to move you forward. If due dates have passed, set new deadlines that are more realistic. Are there any goals that no longer seem relevant? Get rid of them! (Decluttering at its best!) Are there new goals you need to implement? By formalizing them and setting action steps, you can increase your chances of staying on track and achieving your goals.
Leave a comment below and let me know how you will review your goals and plan for success. We are here to help! Wishing you a successful end of 2014!

Underachievement and overwhelm are probably the two words most associated with adult with ADD / ADHD and their jobs. The potential is there…the brains are there…the ideas and the will are there. But we often can’t get out of our own way, thanks to our ADD / ADHD. And as research sadly shows, we are likely to see slower advancement and lower lifetime earnings as a result.
In this presentation Alan will share a range of strategies that will help Adults with ADD / AHD Escape Overwhelm. This will be a uniquely engaging and original presentation, with none of the typical “Use color-coded folders!” tips. And as someone who has seen both sides of career fortunes – going from below-average career advancement despite hard work and long hours, to vice president and employee of the year at the nation’s largest ad agency, to co-founding and building a successful internet start up that was sold for over $10m – he can attest to the effectiveness of these strategies.

Impulse Buyer? Create a list!
One of my clients graduated from college recently. She has a great idea about how to plan for shopping trips for toiletries that will also help curb impulse purchases. First, she will make an electronic list of everything she buys on a regular basis like toothpaste. She’ll include the brand and specific product name she typically purchases. Then she will print the list when she goes shopping and highlight the items she plans to buy. This strategy will help her remember what she needs and help resist the urge to make impulse purchases while at the store. How can you apply this strategy to your shopping?
