Here’s my list of what I’m exploring this week.

What I Said

Do you have trouble holding your own in conversations? Get distracted? Say too much or too little?

PsychCentral interviewed me extensively a while back for their article, 8 Strategies for Navigating Common Conversation Stumbles in ADHD. Bonus: My friend and colleague, Dr. Stephanie Sarkis also offers some great nuggets of wisdom.

Read the article HERE.

What I Learned

I admit it: my computer needs to go on a diet and I need to learn how to better organize my digital clutter.

This article and video were really helpful in giving me ideas on how to do both.

What I Can’t Wait to Read

The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness & Healing in a Toxic Culture

By Dr. Gabor Maté

My friend, Dr. Gabor Maté’s, new book The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture will be available September 13, but you can pre-order it right now.

I’ve known Gabor for well over 20 years and if you haven’t read his other books, or seen his interviews on YouTube, or learned about his work on his website at www.drgabormate.com… you have been missing a lot. His work is life-changing, life-altering. He certainly has changed mine.
Pre-order his book HERE.
