How we measure success varies by person, but some things are valued by the majority of people: achieving our goals in life, having healthy relationships, and doing well in a career we enjoy. For adults affected by ADHD, these benchmarks can sometimes seem hard to achieve if symptoms derail our best efforts.
The first step is to understand where the challenge lies. It is helpful to have a diagnosis in place, to learn about ADHD and any co-occurring conditions you might also have, and to identify where and how symptoms get in the way. Working with a specialist who can help you with a treatment plan can make a significant difference in personal, social and work life.
