Out of all of these, I think the crux is planning. I don't think it's necessarily over-emphasized. You can't plan financially unless you, well, plan. But everything else comes into play--level of commitment, emotional obstacles, unclear life goals--and sometimes you just shut down in ADHD-overwhelmed mode and just can't make yourself plan.

I do this. A good friend does this big time, and the results in either case are not pretty. If all the other factors blogged about here are not in support of giving yourself a safe time/place/opportunity to sit down and plan, then there's bound to be a problem.


Interesting post. Would you be interested in syndicating your content on the home page of my site? It's an online community of finance professionals ( https://www.wallstreetoasis.com ). I could add an RSS feed that will allow me to promote your blog posts to my home page (when i think it will lead to a good discussion and/or is appropriate), but I wanted to make sure you were comfortable syndicating first. The syndicated post would have a link back to your original post. Thanks, Patrick (you can reach me at [email protected] if you have any questions).

Also, if you are willing to provide a link to wallstreetoasis.com that would be much appreciated.

Interesting set of articles and very practical. I'm not sure yet in which category I fall the most of the time but still it's nice and good to think about.



I find the structure of this post interesting. For someone with ADD who admittedly has trouble focusing and staying on one topic for very long, didn't you make it difficult to get through this article by making every reason a different link?

You make a good point. I will play around with the formatting.
