In September 2005 I started this blog and over time, I wouldn’t have dreamed it would become as read and visited as it has. Originally, this was simply a cathartic writing experience, learning about myself along the way. Before long, it turned into an online resource and Pills Don’t Teach Skills was experiencing 100,000 visitors a month. It spawned a book of the same title and I’ve connected with people all over the world. Most importantly and due to no strategic plan or vision of grandeur on my behalf…..I ended up helping a lot of people. That has been the most rewarding experience of this blog.
In life we must choose our battles, which for most people boils down to time. In my life, I’m fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to learn and grow a lot over the past years and I need to focus on other challenges now. With a career, supportive friends and wonderful family…..I’m a lucky man and life has simply reached a point where I’m too busy to maintain this blog any further. To everyone who I have crossed paths with over the past 7 years here, it has been a pleasure meeting, speaking and connecting with you. I will continue to leave this site up on the Internet over the long-term, I feel there are some great lessons and resources that can bring value to many. ADD/ADHD can be overcome and managed. Have the courage to challenge yourself and succeed, whether you have ADD/ADHD or not.
With that, I bid you adieu. I’ll borrow some words from the legendary news broadcaster Walter Cronkite that he signed off with every night and at the end of his last broadcast with, “And that’s the way it is.”
Thank you to
My kids Jackson & Valerie for inspiring me every day
