Being ADHD in Today’s World …and BEYOND!!

The Future of ADHD:

from dealing with a deficit to having an advantage.

What it means to have a deficit

a lack or shortage.

a deficiency.

a disadvantage.

an impairment.

a handicap.

A friend of mine on Google+, Peggy Dulane, is an expert on ADHD. Having quite a bit of ADHD myself, I love hearing her advice and reading her articles about the topic.

Today was different…

She did not share content about ADHD.

She did not write an article about ADHD.

She simply asked a question…


“Does anyone out there have questions or need advice for dealing with ADHD?”

(especially if you are still attending high school or college)


Side Ramble:

Being an adult with ADHD is extremely difficult.

It impacts every aspect of life.

ADHD can and will dramatically affect friendships, relationships, and your job (typically in a negative way).

This question captured my attention

My attention completely sparked (at least for that instant) resulted in intense brainstorming and analysis of ADHD.

I looked at how the situation was before, how it is now, and took into account how society continues to evolve with new technology, culture, and behavior.

Current Methods for Dealing with ADHD

The saviors of tomorrow!

It’s very difficult to change the nature, habits, or behavior of an individual with ADHD, however there are a variety of options available, each with a different amount of success, depending on the individual.

There is medication.



There are scientists actively researching the topic.

Our mind is different.
research ALL the neuroscience!!!


Organizations, specialists, and life coaches.

They help you to improve yourself and to adapt to normal society and be successful.


ADHD Aware
Are you serious?!?
It’s not like we rode the “short bus” to school!

A cure for my ADHD…

Fantastic! Wowzers! A Miracle!



At the same time, why should I change who I am?

To conform and be accepted by today’s expectation of a correct worker?

To appear as an upstanding citizen?

To fit in socially?

To have a massive following of people that worship me?

ADHD in the Future

Society is evolving favorably for ADHD types.

We have technology that simplifies our workflow, and is complimentary to the strengths and weaknesses of individuals with ADHD.

We have more innovative workplace cultures, allowing us to play around on games, listen to music, all while we’re getting the job done.

It’s much easier to have a short attention span in a world where almost anything we want is available immediately. This is creating a new breed of ADHD based types:


Since we have racing thoughts and short attention spans, today’s technology allows us to self-teach about pretty much any topic imaginable.

Sure, my short attention span means I’ll never be the “mega-expert” in any field, but my unbelievable amount of broad knowledge, make me a force to be reckoned with.

We are adaptive.

We like going from one thing to the next quickly.

This makes us the masters of this next era.

ADHD is no longer a deficit, it’s an advantage.
