Focusing on the negative and ignoring the positive: the inflexibility of trial and error learning.

Focusing on the negative and ignoring the positive: the inflexibility of trial and error learning.

Every day we find ourselves in different positions and situations, some are great and some we would rather not be in. There is a lot of negativity out there and there are a lot of positive things out there and yet some of us feel like each day is a struggle for survival not really giving any positive influences the credit they deserve. Some of us even get to the point that when something positive occurs we automatically assume something negative will develop from it. For this rationality we draw from past experiences, often expanding the negative experiences beyond what they originally were about.

How to turn on your Hyper-Focus – Part 1

How to turn on your Hyper-Focus – Part 1

  If I had to use one word to describe how I turn on my Hyper-Focusing ability it would be “Enthusiasm”! As difficult as it is for an Adder to become interested in something for which he or she has no interest, enthusiasm can make all the difference in the world! Something which isn’t noted as much as our Hyper-Focusing ability is our extraordinary ability to become enthusiastic. Enthusiasm is our key to success and happiness by generating positive thinking, positive reinforcement and positive action

Dream on Commander Mart

Dream on Commander Mart

In Celebration of the completion of my Memoir: “One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir – Surviving life with undiagnosed ADD” my wife wrote a poem about my life story! It’s an amazing poem that truly captures the history of my life. If you are wondering about the title, Commander Mart was a fictional Super Hero Character I dreamed about being when I was a young child. Joan is an amazingly talented poet and to truly appreciate and completely understand her poem it is necessary to read my Memoir; however, I still think that most of you will understand what she is expressing. Actually, if you’re an Adder, I am sure of it! Here you go, for your reading pleasure:

Positive ADDer Quote of the week

Positive ADDer Quote of the week

  _______   “I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving he can outwit nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority” E. B. White Author of Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan. E. B. White might not have been an Adder; however, this particular quote struck me as fitting for us Adders. We can either see and use ADD ADHD as a gift of our nature or we can spend our lives trying to find ways to circumvent our inherent nature. Life is short and there is no cure for ADD ADHD and yet our gift has many aspects which we can and should use to our advantage and benefit. “Genius is more often found in a cracked pot than a whole one” E. B. White Spoken like a true Adder! ~Bryan
