In past episodes, I’ve discussed the topic of ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). My husband, Bret, even opened up on this podcast about how he copes, as a spouse, with my ADD. Well, in today’s show, I’ll approach the subject from a new angle: living with ADD from my personal perspective (as someone who has been diagnosed with the disorder) and how my experiences differ today versus the first 45 years of my life — before I was ever diagnosed.

- Personal tips — with specific examples — on how to cope with ADD
- Why no one should attempt multi-tasking, but especially those with ADD

- Why I have text alerts on my phone for seemingly obvious everyday tasks
- How I learned to time block my day and the mentor who showed me how
- What is External Storage and why you need to know
- How to protect your environment to enhance your productivity
