Achieving Goals?

I was reading recentley how people with ADD/ADHD have a hard time planning and completing tasks and how that is related to executive function .Is this true? If so it could explain why I have never really achieved a lot in my life or lose track easily

Re: Achieving Goals?

I cannot achieve any long term goals related to anything I find mentally challenging. This has made going to college and learning a programming language feel like impossible tasks.

Re: Achieving Goals?

Yeah pretty much. Either I can't be patient enough to achieve a long term goal, I lose interest in it or it just seems like too much work.

That said I still do try to make goals.

Often, I feel as if I almost have it all figured out by the time I go to sleep - by the time I wake up, I'm back to base one. My life feels like the movie Groundhog Day, sometimes.
