Free training video introduces my new tool

As an adult with ADD / ADHD, I bet you're sick and tired of fighting a constant battle with yourself to stop procrastinating.

  • You've tried to force yourself.
  • You've tried to bribe yourself.
  • You've tried withholding rewards from yourself until you've finished the dreaded task.
  • You've tried asking a friend to hold you accountable.

None of these tactics have worked for you in the long run to break that procrastination habit.  And there's a very good reason for that.

It's because you were using the wrong key to unlock the door! 

As we've learned from my recent “Getting Started Blues” Survey, much of what we've been calling “procrastination” was probably not really procrastination at all.

And the strategies that tend to work for most people who do procrastinate are not likely to work as well for people with ADD / ADHD.  We need an approach that often is opposite of conventional wisdom. But procrastination is not inevitable with Adult ADD!

Unlock the door to your productivity

My FREE training video gives you the key to unlock the door and create your own breakthrough strategies.

The free video is only the start in my new training program that will guide you, step-by-step, in learning how to work productively with your ADD traits instead of fighting against them.

This training will be free for just a short time.  To access my free video to “Unlock the Door” right now, click here.  And get my cool new Procrastination Transformation Key tool at the end!

    Thank you for this video and for the print out key. I was paralyzed yesterday so your timing was helpful. I was blaming the rain and anything that came to mind for my lack of energy to move forward on a handful of open items (some timely, some not). In stead of making progress yesterday I did take time to look at what I still need to manage. I printed lists, I created a home notebook, and I looked at all my open loops. Then this morning (because I had organized a few things) I felt more prepared and able to welcome the tasks that didn’t happen yesterday.
    Since my paralysis of yesterday was in part because all my committments did not have an order I had an appreciation for the comment in your video on being disorganized.

    I wrote down the words you said Creating organized habits through short rituals would save a disorganized person a great deal of time.” Is there a place in your materials where you elaborate on that concept?

    Thanks again for finding a new way to hit the nail on the head and help people identify the reason behind the lack of moving on a task or project!

    The concept of creating “rituals” is one I include in my training programs, and will teach more about in my upcoming program this year. It simply means to have a set way of doing things habitually, performing a routine over and over the same way. We usually have some rituals that we do as habits already — for example, washing our face and then brushing our teeth first thing in the morning. When you do something the same way over and over again, it creates an automatic habit. If there’s a result that we desire to bring about, a good way to achieve that is to develop a ritual that becomes a habit, in order to create that result.

    So, in the case you mentioned, you could create a ritual of prioritizing or putting in an order the things you want to get done, before setting out to do them. Maybe you keep a certain kind of pad of paper and pen that you like in the same place, to add to the ritual, so the act of writing down the order becomes automatic. Try to make every step of the ritual easy and pleasant, to “flow” into it.

    I have a downloadable class recording with notes called “Rituals to Create Habits in the PRODUCTS section of my website.


    Thank you for the reply. I did take a moment after I commented to find out that I had not noticed the downloadable class.

    Certainly throughout life I have (and do) create rituals. What I struggle with is that my partner hates rituals. I will be so happy to download this class. I feel the information may be the missing links I need to stay on track with a partner who is always changing directions.

    I am so glad that you provide great advice that I can share to help someone agree to agree with some new strategies (on purpose).
    Thanks again!

    Dear Bonnie,
    this information is amazing and it’s helping me understand myself a little better. I can’t wait for the teleseminar next Wednesday.
    Thank you so much for shedding light on what I’ve been going through for over 60 years.

Bonnie, there are no words to express how deeply I’ve been affected by your blog! I’ve only read a few things, but they have created such a complete mind shift that the tears shed have washed away my struggles forever!

For the first time in my life I feel understood and hopeful that I can put some tools and systems in place to help me overcome!”
