“I’ve never been able to do that, why even try?” “I’ll never get that job, why apply?” “I can’t do anything right.” “No one wants to spend time with me.” “I’m never going to be as fun (pretty, smart, successful, etc.) as my friends are.” Every thought we …

ADHD: You Are Not Who You Think You Are

Are you working with boulders or pebbles?

“I just don’t have time to . . . . . “  Go ahead, fill in the blank. Ever said that?  I’ll be you have.  I know I have. But is it time we don’t have or energy?  If we managed our energy better, would our time management …

Balance: Self Value vs Stuff Value

Important vs Urgent

Cindy Jobs Organization, Uncategorized
