Episode Description


Do you fall into traps of procrastivity? With this type of procrastination, priority tasks are avoided by engaging in other tasks that are productive and necessary, but which end up being self-defeating because they steal your time and undermine your prioritized plans. This is why many adults with ADHD say they are busy all day but do not feel productive.

Procrastivity is exhausting, but it can teach us many useful lessons to help increase initiation and follow-through on tasks. The lessons learned from analyzing your procrastivity point the way to a foundation of cognitive behavior therapy strategies that emphasize implementation of various coping skills that help you to turn your intentions into actions.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What “procrastivity” is and how it sneaks into your life
  • A proposal for the central cognitive theme in the mindsets of adults with ADHD
  • At least one implementation-focused strategy to use in your life (and many more, we hope)
