SAF 06 – Focus, Productivity and ADHD
As a psychotherapist and coach in private practice, Eric Tivers has the unique perspective of being both a clinician who specializes in ADHD and an adult who has it. Eric talks openly about his own ADHD and shares with listeners the strategies he's learned to be successful as well as the areas that continue to be challenging.
Focus, time management and improving productivity is important for everyone looking to get ahead in life. Whether you are a parent, a business owner or a competitive athlete, our world is full of distractions that pull us from the things that really need to get done in order to be successful at any one thing. So how do we sift through the clutter and concentrate on the most important tasks? To answer this question I took a look at a population of people who struggle every minute of every day with keeping their mind focused. People with ADHD.
To get some professional insight into our crazy, often distracted minds, I had a chat with licensed psychotherapist, productivity expert and host of the ADHD ReWired podcast, Eric Tivers. Eric sheds light on some really interesting points as it relates not only to dealing with ADHD, but also how to better focus our attention on the things that are important to our daily success.
This episode is near and dear to me as I grow my business and look to compete at a high level in Crossfit. As you know finding balance in life is the reason I launched the Successful and Fit podcast, and Eric provides a wealth of knowledge on the topic. And a quick side note, he helped me better understand my own struggles with potential ADHD, which I learned can be just as much, if not more of a problem, in adults as it is in children.
Questions the I ask Eric:
Does everyone have ADHD now-a-days?
What is ADHD?
What are some symptoms of ADHD?
How did you know you had ADHD?
What resources do you use to stay productive?
How do routines help those with problems focusing, and how do you stick with them?
