A Woman with a Plan

podcast Jun 15, 2020

 

 

Most of the time, people take delight or get excited more on the planning part of activities rather than the actual ‘doing’ part. Driven women are particularly not immune to this since they always have places they plan to go to, projects they want to get done, and people they want to meet. If one is not so keen on how to schedule their activities, it may get quite frustrating and counterproductive.

 

Strategic planning allows driven women to provide a proper...

Drive & Overdrive

blog the driven woman Jun 10, 2020

So, you love being a driven woman, most of the time.  Hell, let's be honest here, nearly all the time. Except when your driven nature gets you into trouble; with your health, your career, or with other people. Hey, it happens. When you have all this awesomeness, sometimes, it's just too much for the situation. And let's face it, we aren't always the best at downshifting when we need to. Sometimes, the need for speed just gets the better of us and the next thing we know, we are in a ditch...

Driving With The Emergency Brakes On

podcast Jun 08, 2020
 

 

Most women with ADHD operate with a fast-moving brain that is difficult to stop. However, since women are more relationship-oriented and tend to follow rules more effectively, they tend to be able to suppress their hyperactivity with an effective and more controlled response to certain situations. This is what I call driving with emergency brakes on.

Sooner or later, this suppression can manifest in the form of anxiety, depression, chronic headaches, and various types of...

Put Your Mind To It

blog the driven woman Jun 05, 2020

I'm sure you've heard the expression "I can do anything, once I've put my mind to it" or "She's a real go-getter, once she puts her mind to something." Your parents and teachers probably said it about you when you were a kid; and your friends, partners, and co-workers have been saying it ever since. Maybe you've said it about yourself too. I know I have. All my life, once I put my mind to something, it was as good as done. I had the drive, the determination, the persistence and the desire to...

The 6 Attributes of an Entrepreneur

podcast Jun 01, 2020
 

A growing number of people, especially women, are opting for the unstable, insecure, risky, and exciting path of working for themselves, either in partnership, collaboration with others, or flying solo. And most of them would choose to do it again, even if they aren't experiencing the level of success they set out for.

Choosing the self-employment path typically means financial instability and insecurity, social and emotional isolation, added stress and pressure on romantic/intimate...

Your Brain is Not Your Friend

podcast May 26, 2020
 

In this episode, Diann talks about how most people think that their brain works on their behalf, helping them to achieve their personal happiness, but little do people know the hard truth that it really doesn’t operate this way, but rather the other way around. 

It is true that our brain can be likened to a computer with regard to how it operates, but unlike a computer, our brain never gets an upgrade, updates, or even extra storage so thoughts we adopted as children...

Imposter Complex

podcast May 20, 2020

 

 

 

One of the things that is the most frustrating to a woman with ADHD is that she usually can’t produce her brilliance on demand.  Try as she might, her creative, innovative, intuitive, out of the box abilities aren’t available to her at all times, like an ATM machine she can always make a withdrawal from.  Sometimes she appears to be an absolute genius at work at life, and other times she feels like a hot mess loser. This can result in a pretty...

Fancy, Gritty, Shiny, FOMO

podcast May 20, 2020

 

 

If you have an interest-based brain,  the fact that a task, project, or goal is important isn’t always enough to get yourself to do what needs to be done, especially if it happens to be important to someone else, but not to you.  This leads to all kinds of resistance, procrastination, and outright avoidance and this is one of the aspects of being an adult with ADHD that is the most frustrating.  But, what if you understood that your brain works...
