This is a question I have been pondering lately. I am interested in numerous topics, hobbies, and life changing do-it-yourself classes. The realization of my problem led me to write this post. I wonder how many readers can identify with my conundrum? I’ve known for some time now that I have A.D.D., not to be confused with A.D.H.D. There is nothing hyper about my physical body. I can sit for hours in one place while my brain runs 50 mph through my skull exchanging interests. I am an unwilling participant in this frenzied activity and routinely have to come up for air. I have six open books in my kindle and have been known to toggle between them in the same session, remembering where I left off on each one. I can’t remember where I put my car keys though. Nor can I remember to pick up my cell phone on the way out the door.
So, am I all in? Definitely not. I wish I were. I would love to focus on one task at a time. Maybe I could read up on it but likely I would not get to the advice part before I moved on to something else. Even my blog is not solely devoted to a single topic. Tiny living, searching for debt freedom, and minimalism are all wrapped up in one neat package. Throw a bow on it and call it a day, that’s my philosophy. I don’t plan ahead or remember lessons from the past. I bought a beautiful expanded organizer/datebook but I neglect to write in it. When I clean my RV, I move from one end to the other and clean the middle last. If I receive a phone call while I’m in the midst of anything, I forget what was happening before hand and start a brand new task.
How about you? Do you share in my pain? Or are you super-organized? I would love to hear from you either way. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I will make an effort not to plan my next vacation in the middle of your thoughts 🙂
