Procrastination

Episode description

Thank you for supporting The ADHD Podcast on Patreon! — https://patreon.com/theadhdpodcast

The trick with procrastination is that it’s easy. It’s the easiest thing in the world to succumb to inaction in place of action, especially when action is challenging. But when you let procrastination rule, shame is sure to follow, and the ADHD brain doesn’t work well in those conditions.

This week on the show we’re talking all about procrastination, avoidance, and the shame that stands between you and the feeling of productive accomplishment that truly is right in your reach. We’re going to help you re-attach motivation to your the actions in your way and hopefully find a path to the other side of inaction.
