Gotta Get More Done? Build an ADHD Support Team!
If you want to get more done and have a calmer, more successful life, you need help. You need an ADHD support team. Thriving with ADHD depends on it.
An ADHD support team is a key piece of the structure ADHD adults need that we’ve been talking about.
An ADHD support team sounds exotic. But, it’s essential.
Basically, your support team takes over the tasks you know you should do, but don’t. The boring stuff. The tasks you procrastinate about and neglect.
Your ADHD support team does more than make your life easier by taking tasks off your plate.
They provide deadlines and clarity. And, the accountability ADHD adults desperately need to stay focused and on track.
You Don’t Have to Do Everything Yourself!
Your first step in building your ADHD support team is moving past the idea that you have to do everything yourself. Especially if you are a business owner or professional with ADHD!
Doing it all on your own means you procrastinate and miss deadlines. Priorities never get started. Or, if they do, they never get finished. Do I need to mention the guilt and shame?
For years, I struggled to do it all myself, and I failed. Frankly, I played small.
It wasn’t until I began delegating that I was able to step into my purpose and bring my ideas to life. Help more people and make a difference in the world.
Yes, building a team was a huge stretch at first! Especially financially. The cost was the main reason I hesitated for years.
But, hiring my first Virtual Assistant for a couple of hours each week unveiled something.
ADHD Support Team = Stepping Stone to Success
I was the huge roadblock to my success. When my virtual assistant took over doing the stuff I’m bad at, I was able to do more of the stuff I’m good at. And, I made more money.
Has it been easy? No! But, it’s getting easier over time.
I had to learn how to find the right people. That’s probably been the hardest part.
I had to learn how to delegate. How to let go of my perfectionism and that idea that I was the only one who could do things right.
And, let go of that silly idea that asking for help is a sign of weakness.
Essentially, I had to learn the hard way how to do many of the things I now guide my clients to do!
Don’t ignore the essential structure an ADHD support team can give you. Having a team do the stuff you’re not so good at allows you to focus on your strengths.
