This week, we’re taking a bit of time to reflect. No, 2020 hasn’t been the best year in recent memory. But does that mean we didn’t learn, grow, and change? Of course we did! Today, we talk about it.We’re sharing insights from clients and community members, guests on the show and more. Plus we have a list of tools that might just come in handy which we’ve adopted this year and have led to a little change in their own right.Links & NotesYouNeedABudgetMission ForwardThe Change ParadoxHow to Split a ToasterWhat's That Smell Season 5(!)ObsidianRoam ResearchGoodLinksAffinity Design Tools from
We’re not always the friendliest narrators of our own lives. Sure, everyone makes mistakes. Everyone is late to a meeting or call from time to time. Everyone has rough days. But if you’re living with ADHD, there’s a good chance you’ve taken the practice of celebrating your perceived failures to an art form.This week on the show, thanks to the inspiration of the work of Susan David and her writing in and around emotional agility, we’re talking all about ADHD and self-compassion. If we’re adept at speaking to ourselves with bile, how will we learn, change, and grow? It turns out, there are steps we can take… and we’re going to try and take a few of them today.Links & Notes‘The Gift and Power of Emotional Courage’ – TEDTalk by Dr. Susan DavidSusanDavid.comGive Me That Panic Attack with Pete Wright — Pete’s guest spot on Systematic with Brett Trpstra

Then you have to test, and test again, changing your behavior bit by bit until you recognize that somewhere buried in your frustration and your personal sense of weakness… there is actually strength! Plus, Pete gets the chance to talk about Underpants Gnomes. How can you miss that?
