    We keep losing track of this thread, if we don’t post in it for a while.

    So, I’ve created a “High-Five Group”, because Groups are easier to keep track of than threads.

    Everyone’s welcome to join!

    I went to the 2017 International ADHD Conference and did my one-man show, “My Award-Winning, Coast-to-Coast Mental Disorder” as a fund raiser for the Conference and got a standing ovation at the end! Wow!

    I can see now that what made the difference was running the show numerous times, but in sections, rather than trying to get through the whole 95 minutes in one go. No one rehearses a stage production from the top to the bottom until just before opening night, but I kept starting at the beginning, and then I’d notice a mistake in the power point, or want to modify the wording, and end up losing my momentum.

    In fact, what i did was something I do with almost any big task, I broke it up into do-able, digestible, manageable chunks.

    Good idea Rick. I learned to break things down in a CBT class I took this year. It sounds so intuitive but I have a hard time putting it into practice.

    As for me I have been able to make it to the last 6 meetings of my ADHD support group. It has been a challenge for me to think into the future and make plans (like booking the day off) but I did it! High Five!

    @ Rick. I seem to remember being told to do this for long lectures. Stop every 45 minutes, give people time to use the restroom, discuss what they heard, etc.
    Then continue. I recently joined a local Toastmaster’s Club, and I am thinking, “AHHHHHHHHHHHH”. 🙂

    I just got my Security Guard Licence!

    Things have changed at work, and all Stage Door staff have to be licenced security guards. I’ve been interested in that sort of thing for quite a while, and my employer paid for my training, exam, and licence.

    I was the first to finish the exam, and only needed 1/3 of the alotted time to write the test and carefully double-check my answers. I passed with 88%. I’d have done even better, but the training provider my employer selected left a lot to be desired, and several questions involved material not covered in the course.

    “Security guard, got my thermos o’ coffee beside me. Security guard, got my 2-foot-long flashlight to guide me…”

    First hi to anyone who has read these posts in the last 7 years. Its high time we started congratulating ourselves and others for just being here…and Despite all the programming infinite loops to he 🏒🏒 in turbotax. I printede out the submission and then noticed it was May 1 in ottawa LATE again.

    I finished my taxes and efiled at 11;15pm last night. In preparaion i had pre done them several times in january nd feb but waited til i had all the info and then procrastinated almost two more months. But they were done. almost on time

    By the way Turbo tax was wrong . Instead of owing them 200 i was due a refund of 400. Discovered as i checked the full tax filing 37 pages.

    I cringe at the word “bookkeeping”.
    And congratulations on the refund!
