Brain Transplants Available Here!
from the ADD Poster Girl, Madelyn Griffith-Haynie, CTP, CMC, MCC, SCAC
My friend and colleague Peggy Ramundo (co-author of the ADD classic, You Mean I’m NOT Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?!) makes fun of me all the time.
“Madelyn,” says she, “it’s like you are trying to give them a BRAIN transplant in every communication.”
Well, maybe not the WHOLE brain – but I do want to insert a few modules that will help you learn to drive the very brain you were born with.™
Really! I can help with that. That’s what I DO – for my clients, my students, my colleagues and my friends. I’ve been doing it for 25 years now.
ADD Driving Lessons
While sharing ADD information, coaching and training ADD Coaches
are how I earn the money to keep a roof over my head and food on my
table, I have a soft-spot for the many ADDers who are struggling and
can’t AFFORD to pay for services, no matter how important or useful
they might be.
So, in addition to the many free and practically free TeleClasses and ADD Hours™ I have run over the past several decades, I have taken a great deal of time out of my life and out of my schedule to write, edit and post many, MANY articles with content that could change your life — available for FREE right here on this blog.
But not enough of you are not reading them.
There are A LOT of answers to that question. The biggest ones seem to be these:
- Too much ADD-info out there now for you to be able to remember where you read what (much less recall where you’d like to visit again)
Taking the time to sign up for notification of new content will remedy that one. It’s QUICK! All it takes is your email address. (I don’t SPAM, I promise!)
- Poorish reading skills in the ADD community overall – insufficient time, technology (and money!) are currently keeping me from my eventual goal of reading the content TO you and posting that option on every page – but it’s coming!
- Not enough of you remembering to “like” and “share” and “rate” to help me get the word out to your friends and colleagues after you read the content (ADD, anyone?)
You tell ME – what will it take to remember to DO that?
The biggest problem, I believe, is the one that the Brain-Transplant Series is designed to attempt to remedy:
You are unaware that the articles exist or
which ones have help for YOUR situation.
I might have figured out a work-around for THAT one!
The Medium is the Muddle
The problem with the blog format is that, no matter how long a list of “recently published” articles I post on the sidebar, the oldest article in the queue ”ages off” every time I add new content.
- That’s a great idea if the blog is one of those “what I am doing or thinking today” sites
- NOT SO MUCH for an Evergreen blog like mine, where the content is designed to build on itself, and much has been written to educate and inform.
- Since I try to post new content many times each month, that presents QUITE a problem over time — one that I have been spending WAY too much additional time attempting to work around – time that would be better spent coaching or creating NEW content -
or sitting around eating bon-bons! ( )
I’ve tried to get around that “blog-format” limitation
in a number of ways:
(READ these – they’ll help you learn how the site works!)
- With the almost-too-long-to-be-useful site-blogroll of most recent articles in the right menubar of every page on this site (newest on top)
- Through a cross-posted menu of categories so comprehensive and varied I fear that Google takes that to mean that I surely must be a spammer and throws me in the trash, rather than helping me let you know I’m here
- Through two TOP menubars (nested – hold before clicking to see what’s there)
- AND two other ways to find content at the very bottom of every page:
by date posted (bottom left) and by category (bottom right)
- By a “home-made” site-map of links to the content by category
- By adding links to related content at the bottom of almost every article
I suppose I could repost periodically, but that would quickly annoy those of you who have signed up for notification of NEW content.
So, I have decided try this: from time to time, as I HAVE the time, I will post a list of links to available articles targeted for specific issues. For the most part, there won’t be a lot of other content on those posts, to encourage you to click through the list of links to read the articles themselves.
First up was When you are NEW to ADD
(much of which most of my TBI readers will probably find useful as well)
Links below to lists of more . . .
I will use a specific TAG to identify each of the new articles in the series, and will create a new Brain-Transplant category under the “Hopefully Helpful” category already on the menubar.
You will be able to find articles in THIS Series by using the search box
- in the header at the VERY top of each page (above the menus) -
for exactly this term (without the quotes):
“Brain Transplant Series“
I can’t add very much MORE unbillable time and stay out of “bag-ladydom,” but if you have any other suggestions I might implement quickly, and with a minimum of technical know-how and NO cash outlay, leave em’ in the comments section below.
As always, if you want notification of new articles in this Series – or any new posts on this blog – give your email address to the nice form on the top of the skinny column to the right. (You only have to do this once, so if you’ve already asked for notification about a prior series, you’re covered for this one too). STRICT No Spam Policy
IN ANY CASE, stay tuned.
There’s a lot to know, a lot here already, and a lot more to come – in this Series and in others.
Get it here while it’s still free for the taking.
Want to work directly with me? If you’d like some coaching help with anything that came up while you were reading this Series (one-on-one couples or group), click HERE for Brain-based Coaching with mgh, with a contact form at its end (or click the E-me link on the menubar at the top of every page). Fill out the form, submit, and an email SOS is on its way to me; we’ll schedule a call to talk about what you need. I’ll get back to you ASAP (accent on the “P”ossible!)
You might also be interested in some of the following articles
available right now – on this site and elsewhere.
For links in context: run your cursor over the article above and the dark grey links will turn dark red;
(subtle, so they don’t pull focus while you read, but you can find them to click when you’re ready for them)
