WHY reframe Procrastination?

© Phillip Martin – artist/educator

  1. First & foremost, Procrastination has become a LABEL.
  2. Labeling is an unfortunate form of self-activated, actively defended confirmation bias.
  3. Confirmation bias limits the search for solutions – you can’t find what you don’t look for
  4. Labeling is judgmental – judgment is make-wrong. Make-wrong never works.
  5. Make-wrong is mean.  It hurts our feelings and shuts us down.
  6. Make-wrong makes us defensive, which activates the amygdala. Bad idea!
  7. Amygdala hijack pulls resources from the PFC (prefrontal cortex). Really bad idea!
  8. We need the PFC on-board for activation and accomplishment.
    Kinda’ dumb to shut it down, huh?
  9. People have been writing “tough love” and “just DO it” advice trying to end the procrastination problem seemingly forever — yet tons of folks still do it.
    It’s beyond crazy to keep doing the same thing, expecting a different result!!
  10. Time to try a new way ’round, don’cha think?

LONG list of links (by category) to posts about sleep and sleep disorders
Articles to help keep you busy
between MY posts!

Below is my ongoing attempt (since February, 2011) to organize some links to “related content” to help navigate to articles RELATED to what a reader may be interested in reading – in this case, sleep and sleep disorders.

There’s this wonderful Zemanta application that suggests a few of these guys whenever I write a post for ADDandSoMuchMore.com. As time permits, I will continue to collect them and move them here, categorizing them by title when I have the odd moment to do so. (No guarantees about the quality of the content, however.)

I will eventually get around to reading them all, and will remove ones I don’t agree with or don’t find relevant, or sufficiently info-dense (hey! my list, my mindset!)

  • The ones I think are really cool, I pepper around in the posts they “relate” to, and they may no longer appear here as a result. (So if your link’s no longer here, it doesn’t mean you flunked or anything!!)
  • There are ALSO links to content I run into as I browse the web, as well as content from some of the blue-bazillian lists I subscribe to.
  • Finally, there is content I search for directly as I write, endeavoring to keep the articles here as current as I am able, given time constraints and my need to keep a roof over my head.

When you are NEW to ADD


to grok the concept of these posts, CLICK:
ABOUT The Brain-Transplant Series

Whad’ya mean NEW to ADD?

GOOD question!

Here are some possible answers:

  • Diagnosed [dx’d] in the last three months
  • Dx’d in the last YEAR, but still struggling and don’t really understand WHY
  • Dx’d EVER, but suspect you are still “under-functioning” and don’t know what else to do
  • Your CHILD fits in either of the three categories above
  • You SUSPECT ADD – in yourself or a loved one – and are wondering if you need to explore diagnosis – no matter HOW you feel about the meds issue

NEW means new to ANY of “The ADD Basics” — no matter WHO you are or how long you’ve been working with ADD in any fashion (even as a professional, by the way).

  • I’ll bet you a year of free coaching that, even if you THINK you know
    ADD fairly well already, what you don’t know still will surprise you —
    and could change your life.
  • Some day I hope to have time to add a few quizzes, but for now . . .
    what’s the harm in checking out the articles below, just to see if you
    already know everything you think you’ll find there?
  • They will be a great review, if nothing else!

Unfortunately for all of us, there doesn’t seem to be an automatic way to generate a site-map for you on this site with this template in WordPress.** Ay me!   So I set up my own version.

Scroll down and I’ve categorized links for you manually.

Below a bit of verbiage and a plea for help is my whenever-I-get-time-to-do-it attempt to organize some of the content to help you navigate to what you are most interested in reading.

PLEASE help me spread the word that my 25 years of reading and research
is posted here for free!
