Embracing Inconsistency: A Personal Journey as an ADHD Coach.





Navigating the inconsistencies and challenges that come with the highs and lows of productivity is a journey I intimately understand, having experienced it firsthand and heard about it from my clients.


In the spirit of openness, I want to share that creating April's newsletter was not without its difficulties. I grappled with procrastination, leading to a regrettable delay in sending out last month's edition. This delay weighed heavily on me, stirring feelings of shame and even causing me to consider skipping this issue altogether.


However, in the face of these struggles, I leaned into a principle that I often discuss with my clients: forgiveness and positivity. Instead of dwelling on missed opportunities, I chose to focus on the joy of reconnecting with all of you.


Today, I want to share some strategies that have not only helped me personally but have also supported my clients in navigating the quirks of ADHD while striving for progress and growth.

 

1. Embrace Forgiveness: One of the most powerful tools in our arsenal is self-compassion. Recognize that inconsistency is not a character flaw but a part of our neurodiversity. Practice forgiving yourself for past slip-ups and focus on learning and growing from each experience.

 

2. Harness the Power of Coaching and Mentoring: As a coach, I've seen the transformative impact of having a supportive mentor or coach. Working with someone who understands ADHD intricacies can provide personalized strategies, accountability, and encouragement tailored to your needs.

 

3. Try Body Doubling: This technique involves working alongside a supportive individual who can help keep you focused and on track. Whether it's a friend, family member, or fellow ADHD buddy, having someone by your side can make tasks feel more manageable and enjoyable.

 

4. Join Accountability Groups: Surround yourself with a community of like-minded individuals who can offer empathy, support, and accountability. Whether it's a local meetup group, online forum, or structured coaching program, sharing experiences and goals with others can boost motivation and accountability.

 

5. Track Your Progress: Utilize tools like journals, apps, or planners to track your daily activities, accomplishments, and challenges. This not only helps in identifying patterns but also celebrates small wins and provides a roadmap for future growth.

 

6. Explore Additional Strategies: Get creative and explore other strategies that resonate with you. This could include mindfulness practices, time-blocking techniques, sensory accommodations, or utilizing ADHD-friendly tools and apps.

 

Remember, there's no one-size-fits-all approach, and it's okay to experiment and adapt until you find what works best for you. Embracing our ADHD journey means embracing flexibility, resilience, and a willingness to learn and grow.
