Hyperfocus - Jeff Emmerson Post

Jeff Emmerson, Adult ADHD advocate and blogger, has published a post here.

How timely. I had a hyperfocus weekend, and got an extraordinary amount of work done. It was great to get the work done, but not so great that I felt exhausted and spent by Tuesday. It's a double-edged sword. I try my best to harness the hyperfocus when it strikes - like the time this summer I organized the 5,000 or so pictures in our home. But sometimes it's so intense I can't even stop to eat - I'm so driven. Balance is key, and I try really hard to not let the hyperfocus take over my life. My toddlers don't allow that to happen much these days, thankfully!
