Decision making can be trickier when living with ADHD. Your tendency is to think in an all or nothing way. Even though you may be aware of the gray, it can be more difficult to find it.
I’m fortunate to have people in my life who excel in the gray. Well, it’s as strategic as it is fortunate. It’s essential to surround yourself with people who balance you out. You end up doing the same in return.
I’m also great with the details but miss the big picture.
Here’s the key to making better decisions. My black and white thinking is something I’m aware of and I know there’s information I forget to consider as a result.
So when I need to think something through I reach out to the people in my life to help fill in the gaps.
They don’t make my decisions for me, they help remind me what else I need to consider. Having them help me think more completely leads to better decisions.
