Many of the struggles we face with ADHD are related in some way to how we experience time. But what’s behind our ADHD’s warped view of time? And why does it affect everything from friendships and marriages to job performance and finances?
One of the single most common frustrations that professionals with ADHD work to solve is the dysfunctional relationship we have with time.
In fact: you’ll find it difficult, if not impossible, to solve any ADHD-related issues without paying attention to time.
We explore time management and why it’s so difficult for us as well as take a deep dive into the roots of ADHD’s warped vision of time, including:
- time lies
- weak boundaries
- time blindness
- our time horizon
- our failure to learn from history
- the “distance discount”
- and more!
