Don’t Forget the Mundane or Super Important Things with these 2 Apps

TL;DR – Check out HomeRoutines and Due for routines and reminders if you are highly forgetful.

As a person with ADHD, we tend to get carried away when we’re hyper-focused. Where did the time go? Who knows. Bunny rabbits.

I was trying out some apps recently I got from this list and two that are really beneficial are called HomeRoutines and Due.

I can’t write

The thought of writing is painful. 

I don’t want to get started. Honestly, the only way I think I can write is to build it into a habit. So it’s more automatic muscle memory than “will power”. I also thought about maybe writing short blog posts, as a series as well. 

Less Focus

Okay so I didn’t stick with the name ZenSaaS. Typical. I have tons of domain names that I do not use.

I changed domain names again. If you reading this on March 2017, the current moniker is “Less Focus”.

Because focus is a problem for me. Well it’s something to be managed at least.

I think I have ADHD-PI.

What is ADHD-PI?

It stands for attention-deficit hyper-active disorder predominantly inattentive. This use to be just called ADD. Meaning I have the AD part without the HD. Meaning I have my heads in the clouds a lot, day dreams a lot, and lose track of time a lot.

I’m also forgetful, bad with names, bad with dates / times. Mind’s always busy & restless.

How did I discover this?

I was doing some market research for OrgNote. Looking at who uses similar products. And I found the ADHD community are really into productivity tools.

So am I!

The more I read up on ADHD and it’s affects, the more I saw myself. It wasn’t even that surprising reading some of the things. Because I lived it, so it seems normal.

But I guess it’s not “normal”.

Things to Do

  1. Get a proper diagnosis.
  2. Learn how to tame this gift.

Hopefully I “stick with it”, (the discovery stuff) and blog more about it here, in the “Less Focus” blog, my journey of productivity, entrepreneurship & add.

The Perfect Name

What’s with us and choosing the perfect name?

For me, I feel like the perfect name speaks for itself. That’s why I spend so much time on it. That’s why I think about it while sleeping. That’s why I spend so much time doing “market research”.

A perfect name, speaks volumes.

Or at least that’s what I tell myself. Maybe it doesn’t matter. Maybe you should pick one and move on.

The best course I took on naming things was Rachel Rodgers, “Ready, Name, Fire!”

The best advice I got on naming something was, if you wake up the next morning and it’s still on your mind, then it’s a good name.

So the interim name for this blog is Zen SAAS.

RIP ZenOverflow

In life, things come and go, life & death.

The reason I started this blog was because of Seth Godin, recommendation to write everyday and Steven Pressfield’s influential War of Art.

I was doing pretty good with blogging everyday from March 2016 to June 2016? So you cay say, it was 60 days of writing and publishing your thoughts everyday.

I also forced myself to tag every blog post. Sure some of it was just rants, but a theme emerged.

I learned a lot. I learned what I liked to write about. I learned what’s motivating to me. I had discovered my voice.

I am not that skilled of a writer. My writing are short. I rant about random things/current events. But I learn I love to write about happiness, a philosophy for living. I like to write about habits, productivity & routines.

I discovered my life motto, “The Art of Stress-Free Success”, (inspired by GTD)

Then I stopped, I think I felt like I was adding pollution to this world. Perhaps I shouldn’t have stopped, but the benefits have been gained. I know what I want to talk about. I know what I want to do.

What to do today?

Inspired by Todd Herman (who got it from Jack Dorsey), I am having a theme for today.

Today is sharpening the saw day. Ala the 7th Habit.

Pretty inexperience with such things. Was very tense the whole day, like I should be working. But I usually get like that when stuck with something with work.

Got to get use to relaxing, and being inspired.
