The Keys to Follow-Through
From Idea to Implementation
Sure, you’re creative and full of great ideas. You’re generous and eager to offer your services to help out others on their projects. But your helpful offers are not really helpful if you don’t meet the commitment. And what about your own commitment to yourself?
How many of your good ideas and intentions didn’t get off the ground?
What’s Your Pattern for Getting Stuck?
As an ADDer with a history of poor follow-through, you have your own tendencies of where you start and stop projects; your own unique, predictable pattern. We could call this your ‘Follow-Through IQ.’
In the “Following Through” telephone class, you’ll learn about the five distinct stages of follow-through:
- Vision – the idea
- Feasibility – the reality check
- Strategy – the planning and timetable
- Implementation – action
- Completion – tying up loose ends
You’ll be able to graph your own typical “Follow-Through IQ” pattern. Most importantly, you’ll read about strategies and solutions for problems in each stage.
Tailor Strategies to Fit Your Own Traits
In class, we’ll follow two real-life case studies of people with follow-through challenges. Using these examples, you’ll be able to pick solutions for each stage of follow-through, and customize them to fit your own traits and tendencies. You’ll also get strategies and tools for dealing with typical ADD difficulties.
For example, you’ll learn:
- How to avoid having your vision become merely a ‘pipe dream.’
- Ways to discern whether roadblocks require abandoning the project or simply tweaking the strategy.
- When it makes sense to ‘go with your gut’, and when it’s necessary
to slow down and test your assumptions.
- How to keep perfectionism from paralyzing your progress.
- How to develop a time sense so you can create a realistic timetable and action plan.
- Ways to delegate aspects of your project without losing control of it.
- How managing expectations of others can provide a built-in mechanism for feedback.
- Strategies for dealing with your own blind spots (the stuff you avoid!)
This 90-minute class is rich with discussion about how you can use strategies to break through your own follow-through roadblocks. You’ll leave ready to tackle that abandoned project idea with new commitment and energy!

Forget about your memory! Have you been embarrassed at not remembering what you’re told at work? Have you had to admit that you “mis-remembered” an appointment? Your problem isn’t your memory. It’s the belief that you should be relying on memory in the first place. Many with ADD / ADHD don’t take notes in meetings, Read post.
Sometimes changing course quickly is the best decision We’ve always heard that we should stick to what we start, follow through, and strive to meet our goals. With ADD / ADHD traits, we may have heard that advice more often than most. Because, honestly, “staying the course” is usually not what we tend to do. Read post.
You’ve probably noticed that the word “should” isn’t especially motivating. No surprise – Our ADD / ADHD brain-wiring doesn’t respond to what we ‘should’ do. Unless we’re really interested in a task, we have a pretty hard time staying focused on it for any great length of time. Sometimes, we require the stimulus of a Read post.
