just-one-more-thing-itis

I don't know where I was going with this post ... I sat down with the intent to write something profound about the title (read about "avarice" in the previous post). I got immediately distracted by a quick search I did on "one more thing itis". I was expecting a link to Julie Morganstern because that is who I attribute this line to but it came up with a link to ADD at work article. Man, I see a lot of my behaviour in the article below. I understand I shouldn't label myself with any particular "syndrome" or "illness" but it's hard not to after reading it. Labels can type cast me into to a "comfy" box that I live in instead of treating any trait as a continuum of positive and negative behaviours. Thinking about the 7 deadly sins and 7 heavenly virtues as well as the traits of good and bad manager in this manner I want to make the subject of upcoming blog.


ADD Traps at work.

ADD at Work Book.






More on ability and disability:
Oh ... yeah now I remember what I wanted to write about the title as I edit this post for the fucking 6th time. Ugh.

Do you know the road to San Jose.

Hi Marty,

So I'm commenting 5-years after your post because I recently found out that I'm ADD. And one of my biggest traits is the one-more-thing-itis. When I read about it, I was like, yeah, that's what I've been telling my therapist for years...that's why I'm late.

Anyway, I read it in a book on ADD also, and decided to do a search. But all that really came up was your blog article. Guess it's not a popular coin for ADD traits after all.

So what does Julie Moregentstein (or whatever her name was) have to say about OMTI?

So another year later, I'm excited to find this post… I'm a 32 year old who wasn't diagnosed with ADD until 2010… what a relief to know what was going on with me. I strongly recommend Dr. Ed Hallowell and Dr. John Ratey's books, "Driven to Distraction" and "Delivered from Distraction."

I googled "OMTI" because my therapist, an ADD specialist, mentioned the term but couldn't remember the book (she has ADD too, of course!)… now I can tell her!
