This will be a short note but I want to address a common misconception about Executive Dysfunction verses laziness.
You’re probably not lazy. Especially if you’re not neurotypical.
Executive Dysfunction is so common. A lot… A LOT of people have it.
Do you want to start the thing but are almost afraid of it?
Do you want to start the thing but you know you can’t do it perfectly so you think why bother?
Do you want to start the thing but your mind is telling you it is going to take more spoons than you have?
Do you want to start the thing but have trouble initiating?
Congratulations, it’s Executive Dysfunction.
You’re not at all even a little but just lazy.
And berating yourself for being lazy is doing the opposite of solving the problem.
Cut yourself some slack, and now that you know what it is, reread this past Monday’s post.
