There's a big difference between #Motivation and #Activation.
You can really want to do something (motivation) yet still have difficulty getting started. Activation requires clarity (knowing exactly what you want to do), process (how you'll get it done) and time-management (when you'll do it). Activation may also require kick-starting your brain. So be kind to yourself! (And if you're stuck on Activation, consider a coach.)

Looking forward to my call-in radio interview with Claudia McDonnell on ‪#‎WVOX‬ (1460am or listen online) this Monday, 1/18 at 11am ET. We'll be discussing what makes it so challenging to get things done - especially getting organized. Whether it's your home, work, thoughts or life, there are strategies to make ‪#‎organization‬ easier and sustainable.

One of the most painful things about having #ADHD is the challenge of getting stuff done.  I remind my clients (and myself) that "ADD is not a disorder of not knowing what to do, but of doing what you know." Sooo frustrating (and they think we just don't care enough!)   Dr. Stephanie Sarkis perfectly describes ADHD as a disorder of motivation. "The brain has difficulty motivating itself to do tasks, and it is also difficult for it to tear itself from other tasks.”

This October – Get More Done with Less Stress!
Two new, very affordable programs (teleclass and in-person), for people who feel overwhelmed or held back by #ADHD or #EF challenges like time management, organization, prioritization, activation (getting started) or completion.  Both programs begin in late-October and offer practical training, non-judgmental accountability and peer support.  Register and information: or call 914-373-4787.
