It’s Been a Long Time

That’s the way it is with ADHD sometimes. You’re working on something. Then something distracts you and it takes you a long time to get back to what you were doing. If you get back to it at all.

In my case, it’s taken two years to get back to this blog. I spent most of the interim time working as Executive Director of the Edge Foundation. While there, I collaborated on posts for the Edge Foundation blog. You can also find many posts of mine in the newsletter of the ADHD Coaches Organization where I was President for several years, and now serve as Immediate-Past President. And, from time-to-time, I still post on the Fidget to Focus blog. I will soon be blogging on my new company’s blog at FocusForEffectiveness.com. It’s not up yet, so you’ll just have to visit it later.

In the mean time, I have been spending more and more of my time presenting about ADHD and Coaching in local, national, and international venues. I’ll be posting about those next, so if you are around and available you might want to check them out. I’d love to meet you.

All my best, Sarah

Perspectives, Life, and ADHD

Hi. I am Sarah D. Wright, a professional personal coach specializing in working with adults who have attentional issues. Welcome to my blog.

The title of this very first post is Perspectives, Life, and ADHD because I think perspective is often what it’s all about. Like those collages of little photos arranged so that together they make a larger image, the angle or distance from which you view the image makes all the difference in what you see. Up close, your attention is captured by one or just a few of the smaller images. You have no sense at all of the bigger picture they contribute to. Take several steps back, and you may not be able to clearly see the little images, but the larger images becomes clear.

I find perspective is very valuable when living with ADHD. For instance, if we focus on what we can’t do or at least can’t do easily, then we stop noticing what we can do. If we ignore what’s easy for us and only value what’s hard, then we turn our backs on our gifts and try to be what we’re not.

I hope with this blog to share various perspectives on Life and ADHD to inform and challenge and entertain you who visit.

If you want to learn more, feel free to contact me.
I’ll be happy to hear from you.
