If you have ADHD and you want to set some goals for the coming year, we're going to take a fun approach in this episode. Back on the podcast is Dr. Lara Honos Webb, a clinical psychologist specializing in ADHD.
Dr. Lara is also the author of several books on ADHD including Brain Hacks, life changing strategies to improve executive functioning.
Dr. Lara takes ADHD goal setting through the past, present and future model. She talks about how you need to look at your past successes in order to build confidence as well as challenge that self-doubt in your head.
She talks about practicing being present in the moment and how to create fun for yourself and not worry about the past or the future in this part of your goal setting. She talks about the power of now.
And, Doctor Lara talks about how we look to the future when it comes to ADHD goal setting. She suggests that you imagine talking to your future self, looking at a year and even five years down the road. What advice would you give your future self, right now?
Dave and Dr. Lara also talk about the importance of practicing optimism, practicing gratitude and being proud of your accomplishments in life. Staying positive goes a long way in setting and achieving goals for yourself.
