Coach’s Confessional – Unlikely Steps to Getting Unstuck

by | Oct 16, 2021 | Coach's Confessional, Productivity

I set myself a goal a few months back to post a monthly roundup of upcoming ADHD-related webinars – a one-stop spot. And I gotta admit, it’s a pretty easy post to pull together – click around, copying & pasting titles & links.

And I’ve had “write ADHD Awareness Month post” on my priority task list for over three weeks.

And as October got closer, and then the days started marching by, I  couldn’t find the energy, motivation, initiating fuel to get myself started. At the end of each day, I’d tell myself “tomorrow, definitely tomorrow.”

ADHD strikes again – once again derailing good intentions!

So I gave up, told myself to let it go. They’ll be another Awareness Month next year.

Then I sat quietly and thought about it for a few minutes – Why had something that is relatively simple to do feel so daunting?

Sure it’s been a busy month with lots of sessions with amazing and inspiring clients. And the admin stuff, well that’s a vicious sandtrap you just have to climb out of and go back to tomorrow to take few more whacks at that ball.

In those quiet moments, I realized I had slipped into overwhelm.

There were so many webinars and expos in my Facebook feed and email inbox!  I didn’t know where to begin. And everyone else was promoting and posting, why should I bother?

And inspiration seemed to have abandoned me. I couldn’t find anything interesting or unique to share. So I sat down this morning to do some focused co-working with my Sunday Crusher Crew, did a quick skim of my Facebook feed, and low and behold there it was!

Lessons learned –

  • Sometimes it’s OK to let something go.
  • Sitting still and quietly for a few minutes is never a waster of time.
  • And if you give yourself those two gifts, inspiration just might be able to find you again!

So I’m gonna finish this post and get started on that ADHD Awareness Month post!

There's still time to register for the 2021 Virtual International Conference on ADHD

The conference is virtual again this year, which means no hanging out with our tribe in-person, exchanging ideas, brainstorming new projects, and enjoying some well-earned time off from "being neurotypical", but never fear, the virtual conference last year was terrific! Lots of powerful presentations and opportunities to connect in virtual spaces.

And, with no airplane or train tickets to buy, cars to rent, hotel rooms, and meals to buy, attending the conference is much pretty darned affordable!

With a member's code from ADDA or CHADD, you can get yourself a ticket for the general conference session on the 5th & 6th for as little as $120!
