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