The Power of Observation

The Power of Observation

Developing the Power of observation Do you recall in the stories of Sherlock Holmes and how he always seemed to have the ability to quickly read a situation and come up with a theory, that to everyone else, seemed impossible?  How was he able to do that?  He took great pride in observing people, places and situations.  Anyone can become a good observer but it can be a really valuable tool when you have a child who is challenged ADHD characteristics.  As we continue our...

Helping the ADHD Parent: The gift of Awareness

What does it mean to be aware?  It involves a conscious effort to be focused, and to pay attention to the smallest of details.  Being aware, or mindful, means that we become aware of every nuance of thought, feeling, sensation, reaction and experience.   It’s can be a very powerful place to be, but most of us don’t allow ourselves to drink in the essence and simplicity of simply being in the moment.  This is because we have to make a conscious effort and choice to stop...

Five A’s to Creating Change

What does change mean to you?  Change seems to be such an easy concept to grasp—in our minds.  But when life hits you alongside the head and places demands on you, you aren’t ready for it.  So, what’s the first thing you do?  You react.  Instead of taking time to stop, think and problem solve, most of us react without thinking.

Mostly I’m thankful to Cathy Dick, for helping me a lot with previous decision making and daily planning. She has helped me put into practice a mind-set to be something that I wish to accomplish by the end of each day to the end of the year– focus on that, and make sure I do things in terms of preparing myself mentally and physically before I start.  She has a lot of great resources that she shares freely too.  You can trust her to do what she says she’ll do.

Cathy’s insight and guidance has, and continues, to help me organize my previously chaotic life into a group of systems that work well together.  Her program helped me reduce the stress of trying to keep track of so many things at once, and save me significant time that can be used for more productive things. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the things you have to do and to keep track of, I highly recommend that you speak with Cathy about how her Time Strategies can help you make your life make sense.

I feel fortunate enough to have participated in one of Cathy’s Teleclasses and purchased  her ADD Parental Strategies program.  I really needed my husband to understand more about ADD so we could help our son better.  The program dove into who we are as people and showed us the importance of communication between us in order to communicate more effectively with our son.  I’d recommend this program to everyone, whether they have ADD kids or not.  It’s a real eye opener!  Thanks.
