Practical information for adults with ADHD and those who care about them. Clear, understandable advice and strategies to help you get more done and live a better life, from psychologist and ADHD expert Dr. Ari Tuckman.
Create Good Luck
You’re more likely to be in the right place at the right time by being in lots of places. And doing a good job. We’ll talk about how getting on top of your ADHD will make you more lucky.
Fear of Failure
After too many setbacks and struggles, it’s tempting to want to avoid future failures. Sometimes we mask our fears with apathy, sometimes we even fear success. As easy as it is to fear failure, you don’t have to.
Interview with Comedian Dave Kinney
Dave (@DaveKinney) is a comedian who talks about ADHD in his act and now also on my podcast. He shares how people respond to that and how it’s different from telling a boss or new girlfriend. We also talk about what it’s like to be a self-employed performer and how he manages the lack of structure.
The Importance of Paying Attention to Sex
A good sex life can be an important part of a couple’s happiness, yet it’s too easily neglected. ADHD doesn’t make it easier, but it’s also not the sole culprit. We’ll talk about how to create a better sex life and how both you and your partner will be better off for it.
The Crucial Difference Between Facts and Opinions
Both facts and opinions are important to making good decisions, but sometimes they get confused and bad decisions result. This is especially relevant for the topic of ADHD that tends to attract too many opinions that are based on too few facts.
Awareness, Honesty, and Willingness: The Three Keys to Success
In order to do something, you first need to be aware of it, then be honest with yourself about the need to do it, then be willing to do it. Separating it out into these three parts makes it easier to identify where things break down when a task isn’t done.
I struggle with ADD and I can relate to nearly everything I’ve heard so far. Thank you for this
Want more from this
I was very disappointed that there were no strategies offered in this podcast. It seem to all be a build up and then dropped flat. No strategies or help suggested and then a lottery offered.
My wife is a neuropsychologist, my father-in-law was a psychologist and both of them were always talking about ADHD. Russel Barkley was always quoted by them. I ask my wife about this book and since she is not seeing any patient with ADHD for more than 10 years, did not know of it. Now she will listen to this audiobook podcast in case one of her patients show signs of ADHD or has been diagnosed as such. She will also recommend the book.
I am in that place that age and maturity (I am approaching senior level) that I want to learn about everything. This topic is very useful mostly because as an attorney, music aficionado, and not conformist of what I know is enough.
Thank you Dr Ari Tuckman for this wonderful book. You deserve more than 5 stars review!
