ADHD and goal-centred discipline

Hey there, it's Katie McManus here, and in this episode of The Weeniecast, I dive into a topic that I get asked about all the time: how to build discipline when you have ADHD.

It's a question that many people with ADHD struggle with, especially when the traditional idea of discipline feels out of reach.

We need to let go of the vision of perfect discipline and understand that for individuals with ADHD, discipline looks different.

It's goal-centred, built in sprints, and relies on momentum rather than motivation.

I use the example of building a workout routine to illustrate this point.

Instead of overwhelming ourselves with complex fitness plans, we need to set low expectations and celebrate the small wins.

Oh, and if you're an ADHD entrepreneur who.... ermmmm like me.... likes to keep up to date with axe cutting news, I've got this rather lovely TikTok channel you can follow.
