On this week’s episode, I’m answering a listener question on how I stay focused at accomplishing tasks while dealing with Attention Deficit Disorder.


There are so many people who move slowly, and when they see somebody that’s energetic, they think something is wrong with them.

  • It’s crazy how many famous people, inventors, and leaders have ADD.
  • I think ADD is a benefit for entertainers or speakers because it makes you act faster.
  • Adults with ADD have generally learned how to deal with it and learned its benefits. But when it comes to children, I would be very careful with anyone saying something is “wrong” with them.


I have to make a choice just like everyone else does, but I make it from a different side.

  • A lot of people are prone to do nothing.
  • They have to discipline themselves to turn the TV off and go write, make phone calls, or work on something that will make their life better.
  • Everyone struggles with making themselves do what they want to do right off the bat.
  • A benefit of ADD is that, because you’re thinking in a bunch of different directions, you connect dots and make sense of some things that will help other people.


Tune in this week to hear an amazing example of Andy’s son Adam connecting the dots to create a logical story of how “noodling” got started.
