I have a theory that so-called “Attention Deficit Disorder” is really just good old-fashioned procrastination. Why? Consider: when people identified with ADHD must complete a task that’s fun, they have reserves of focus. When the task is to play their favorite video game without interruption for an hour, for example, nothing distracts them. If the task, on the other hand, is one that’s as difficult as it is rewarding – tidying up the house, writing a chapter of your book – then they are again burdened with attention-deficit disorder.
