When you have ADHD, you should always try to be "long optionality". And try not to be "short optionality".
As the parent of an ND kid, I find your writing insightful. Would you be willing to do a quick chat on how I can put this kind of a philosophy in place as a parent?
This isn't very good advice. The other thing about ADHD is that you procrastinate a lot and put off things. Being long optionality may be psychologically satisfying, but in reality you are more likely to get into the Rahul Gandhi syndrome. Remember back in 2013 when he was all "Don't disturb me. I am rebuilding the Congress Party from ground up. Don't bother me with elections and shit"? In reality of course, he was spending all his time in Bangkok.
For someone with ADHD, it is better to have shorter deadlines and tighter leashes.
