Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes

Posted Feb 04 2011 9:39am

I love that old David Bowie song Changes!
“Ch-ch-Changes
Just gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time”

Funny, but men seem to be more resistant to change than women. Are women smarter for displaying their ability to adapt and change more? Not sure, I’m sure I’ll get a few comments. The truth is, change and ADD seem to be a challenging combination for both men and women. Many ADD’ers close their mind to change. Sometimes it’s due to ego, attitude, insecurity or other symptoms that can be associated with ADD. One thing I know that has worked for me in winning my battle against ADD, is being open to change, and adapting. It’s easy to be open to change for many, however adapting to it is where the challenge lies. For an ADD’er, a strategy is required to transition through change. Strategies I have found to be successful are capturing ideas and planning steps down on paper, scheduling tasks or follow ups, trying to look at things differently or from the perspective of others.

Changes, or the lack of some to change have been captured very poetically by David Bowie “I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence and
So the days float through my eyes
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They’re quite aware of what they’re going through
Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes”
