I took a bit of a break from stuff. I’ve been trying to figure out my head, make some changes, and figure out what lies ahead before I start blabbering away on here. What better time than the Christmas Holidays. One conclusion I have come to is that Resolutions….especially New Year’s Resolutions are bunk. I [...]

We all carry a different lease on life. Unlike most leases, we have no idea when this lease expires. Someone can live a healthy life full of exercise and vegetables and will die of a heart attack at 38 while another can smoke 80 cigarettes a day while punishing their liver with scotch and die [...]
For the longest time, I’ve tried whatever I can to remember everything I need to get out the door and survive the day. On the way to the office, for example, I need my laptop, my lunch bag, my phone, and my keys. I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve gotten out of [...]
I have been putting a lot of thought to the fact that I think boys are completely screwed in today’s school system. Well, I think girls are too, but boys tend to be the ones with attention issues. Really, it’s any kid that has an active imagination and creativity coursing through their veins that are [...]
I had an absolute shit day at work recently. If you add up all the positive aspects of the day, you’d think I was insane. The office was empty. We’re busy as can be right now. Bills are being paid. Co-workers were on vacation or on site at a client’s. It was quiet, and I [...]
The creative process is an elusive thing. Almost impossible to describe. Seemingly impossible for the impatience of someone with ADHD to harness at times. Impossible to quell once in the zone. But the creative process is something that I’ve been craving lately. Having the courage to try something new and, most importantly, on my terms. [...]
Every now and then I have to remind myself that I am nothing more than a survey of one. I know what is going to appeal to me. I know how my brain reacts to whatever stimuli is put in front of me (and sometimes I’m completely shocked by how my brain reacts). The only [...]
I wrote an article for Core77 called “The Attention Deficit Designer”. It was published yesterday and similar to the reaction I got from my IDSA presentation, I am nothing short of humbled by the comments and reaction I am getting from this article. Thanks to everyone who took the time to retweet, send me an [...]
Later. It’s a simple word, really. So easy to throw around and use for just about everything. “That time doesn’t work, let’s do it later”. “Later, Honey. I have a headache”. “I’ll go for that run later”. As with most things ADD, “later” is another one of those things that falls on the spectrum of [...]
I wish I could tap into this feeling I have going on right now when things are “slow”. Things truly are never “slow” in my life. But the sense of urgency, or balls in the air at one time wasn’t as high 3 months ago as it is now. The irony of it is that [...]
