Forced to Work From Home with ADHD! Now what?
There are a ton of tips, blog posts, and videos on what you need to do to be successful working from home, and thanks to the coronavirus forcing so many companies to mandate working from home for their employees.
But I firmly believe there isn’t just one right way of working from home. As someone with ADHD, I like to learn from multiple different people in multiple different formats.
I have a unique experience working from home as I’ve done it twice, once managing teams as a government contractor for four years, then after being back in the office for two years, working from home for the last five years as an entrepreneur.
I figured it would be of value to share what I’ve learned works and what doesn’t work for those new to working from home and for those that also have ADHD superpowers.
Interestingly enough, the first time I worked from home was before being diagnosed with ADHD, and just that little difference transformed how I approach my work from home life and the way I manage my day.
Many would guess working from home would create laziness but it's more likely to lead to burn out because working from home requires a new life mindset not just a work location change!
