“Own your positives. Don’t focus on your weaknesses.”
-Dr. Ned Hallowell
Own Your ADHD
I’ve worked closely with Ned Hallowell and he has a wonderful take on ADHD. He says it’s a ‘gift that’s hard to unwrap,’ and he used to get taken to task by people who claimed he was being Polyanna-ish to ever think of ADHD as a gift. What he was saying was really this – ADHD can bring with it lots of difficult stuff (or, as he says, ‘having ADHD sucks’). But if you only dig into what’s hard, you will never be able to build on your strengths. And for all of us, it is our strengths that lead us to who we will be and what we will do with our lives.
In the video below, Hallowell talks about his morning with ADHD – including some pretty average moments of ADHD-ness that may make you laugh in recognition. Own your ADHD, he urges, and more.
