ADHD Coaching - What are you tolerating?

People have learned to tolerate a lot! They put up with, accept, take on, and are dragged down by people's behaviour, or their own. They tolerate unmet needs, crossed boundaries, unfinished business, frustrations, negative attitudes and underachievements.

In Coach World we call these Tolerations (Copyright CoachU Inc).

Tolerations drain our energy. By putting up with them we are distracted from other important things that need our attention. It makes sense, then, to recognise our tolerations and deal with them. Then we can get on with the important things in life.
Sound easy? Well, sometimes it is but other times not.

Why not try it?
  1. Take some time to write down a list of things that you know you are tolerating. Some things will come to mind easily, such as the clutter in your family room or the lawn that needs mowingm Others will be harder to pinpoint, like having to do without 'me-time'.
  2. Divide your tolerations into three headings: Home, Work/Study, and Family/Community. Try to list 10 under each heading. Notice how some headinsg are easier to fill than others?
  3. As you think of more items, add them to your list.

What will you do with this list of Tolerations? Why not work with me to address each and every one. I'm based in Perth, but I 'have Skype, will coach' anywhere in the world.
