Are you creatively wired? An out-of-the-box thinker?

Perhaps you have creative idea syndrome, even though you don’t always act on them.

You likely are brilliant, maybe even an entrepreneur, but also frequently overwhelmed, and frustrated as you impulsively jump from one project to the next.

Yet, in this fast-paced, increasingly disconnected world, you are exactly what the world needs now.

 

Is It ADHD?

I don’t like labels. In fact, only cultures with compulsory education label people with terms such as ADD/ADHD.

In a tribal or agrarian society, your natural talents would be celebrated and become your valuable role in the community. Alas, most of you live in a label-oriented society, where your challenges are seen, where you may feel like you don’t fit in, and labels are all too common. If the label can give you insight into how your brain is wired, it can be useful.

The creatively-wired brain frequently experiences:

  • Overwhelm
  • Swirling thoughts
  • Multiple points of attention
  • Losing track of time
  • Procrastination
  • Impulsivity
  • Loss of focus
  • Loss of motivation
  • Memory impairment

It’s as if your brain is a world-class orchestra, with no conductor in the room to keep all the players in line. The conductor in the brain is the Executive Functions, which are supposed to take intentions and ideas, move them forward into strategies, then initiate action and completion.

When the Executive Functions are not online, listening, communicating, relationships, time management, planning and follow through are neurologically compromised.

The Executive Functions coordinate:

  • the ability to organize thinking
  • the ability to shift thought patterns
  • the process of entering information into short-term memory
  • the ability to think and differentiate between emotional and logical responses
  • the ability to make a reasoned decision
  • the ability to set a goal and plan how to approach a goal
