Thank you SO much for sharing this!! I've known I was ADHD for a long time but only formally diagnosed at age 61. I do platform development and love it - work 100% remote. I enjoyed your subtle humor mixed with the great insights and advice!

Also you made me look up psytrance. While I suspect some tongue-in-cheek humor there, it's result sounds a bit like a concept I studied briefly when doing my master's in organizational leadership: Flow (Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi). pursuit-of-happiness.org/history-o... Except "flow" is intentional, and productive (in a manner of speaking). ADHD likes / seeks a "flow state".
