“Why Johnny Never Finishes Things

When they’re hyper-focused, nobody beats an Adder!

ADD, to me, is a memory problem, and the tendency to hyper-focus merely an adaptation.

The ADDER knows, at some level, that if they don’t finish the current task now, they’re likely not going to remember to come back to it.

An ADDER usually has an astounding number of unfinished projects that will testify to this fundamental truth, and they don’t want yet another one.”
