Understanding Executive Functions - 064

executive function Sep 30, 2019

Hey ADDers!  Many of you are living without well-developed executive function skills and strategies and perhaps don’t know it.  Or maybe you do…but you don’t know what can be done.  You’ve had these struggles in one form or another for most of your life and if they were going to improve, they certainly would have by now.  Fair enough…  You’ve come to the conclusion that you must have treatment resistant ADHD or really bad ADHD because it just isn’t getting any better; in fact, it might even be getting worse.  You’re showing up late more often, forgetting things, taking longer to get your paperwork done – whether for work or school.  In fact, your mind might feel like it’s speeding along, yet your thinking is actually slower and less clear.

As I've said before, there are many reasons why these skills get derailed in their development.  It's not your fault that your skills aren’t as fully developed “yet” as you need them to be, and you are responsible for developing them now, if you want your life to work better.  You can have skills but no strategies or strategies but no skills and falter either way; you need them both.  And even though you learn them separately, they are all inter-related. 

In this episode Dr B talks about:

  • Being willing to start where you are, without judgment
  • Setting a goal with enough specifics so your intention is clearly defined
  • Achieving a goal based on what you decide to do in the moment
  • The Importance Of Celebrating Your WINS
  • Living Beyond ADHD & Loving It:  Free 1-Hour Live Webinar coming in October; date and time to be determined.  Event is over.

Developing your Executive Function Skills and shifting your limiting beliefs is the fastest and most effective way to overcome ADHD limitations, find focus, gain confidence, and newfound freedom in your life!

My mission is to put an end to the worldwide needless suffering of adults with ADHD and those with under-developed Executive Function Skills - whether from ADHD, chronic depression or anxiety, trauma, addictions, or chronic illnesses.  And, you don't need a formal diagnosis to know you need help developing these executive function skills in order to greatly reduce your suffering.
