Founder with ADHD

Wow! Love this so much:

Getting diagnosed and starting the company showed me that I wasn’t lazy. Now I had hope.

Why can it be so hard? Because, even the “simple” tasks can feel incredibly difficult to even start:

This is how it feels!

Totally agree with figuring out the solutions:

When you’re fighting ADHD, external stimuli are your enemies. Unstructured time (when your mind is wandering) is exactly when those stimuli attack.

LOL:

Starting my day with a small win is a good way to remind myself that being productive feels good. Sometimes I’ll also knock out a low priority task first just because it seems fun. Because fuck it, I’m my own boss, and it’s okay to enjoy that.

Yes:

Everyone should be lucky enough to find work they enjoy. But for those with ADHD it’s a requirement if you want to be successful.

But, even for those that don’t have ADHD, I think you want to find work that you enjoy and that you believe matters, right?
