What are you good at?


#21

I have a few crochet bunny’s without head’s and limbs, a dress that is just a few cm long, and sooo many half projects waiting desperatly for some attention haha
I always get way to excited and than I get bored…


#22

I’m good at art and making things :slight_smile: and procrastinating, and taking mental detours and getting lost in the internet
I bet you’re really good at something you’ve been ignoring or dismissing because you don’t think its important. Dive deep, we all have our strengths and our loves and the things we lose ourselves in. Is there something that you consistently hyperfocus on?

@Becky , there was a knitting shop in London that ran an exhibition of everyones unfinished projects, I thought BRILLIANT I’ll send them everything thats sitting there stuck half finished and making me feel inadequate so I gathered all mine together to send them, it was a massive parcel, I was really excited to be free of it…but of course I was late and by the time I got round to being organised enough to send all my stuff the exhibition was over!

I am good at research, writing, and conceptual thinking. I love to problem solve. I’m good at conveying thoughts and emotions. I am good at empathy. (That last one sounds weird when thought of as a skill!) I am good at being a mom. I am good at knowing my strengths and being confident in who I am. I’m good at showing people kindness. I like me! I might be a hot mess sometimes and I struggle with a TON of things, but I like who I am.

Creative writing, horse training, making friends, sleeping, and coding. If you’re having trouble finding a “thing,” I might suggest you try coding; idk if it’s a thing or not, but I’ve really noticed a higher proportion of ADHDers in tech. I wonder if the hands-on nature of the work is appealing to us and our distractible brains. You can code as quickly as you want - you don’t have to wait for anyone. No patience required. If you get bored, you can run the code you have so far and see what it does. It’s a billion tiny tasks that you do at your own pace, rather than one giant task that takes ages and loads of patience.

Playing, writing, and performing rock ‘n roll. Also, Tour Sound Reinforcement. Yep. We aim the instruments (lights), hang the monitors, and run the boards. BEST. JOB. EVER.


#27

I don’t now a thing about code so because I don’t I guess I never thought about it being possible. I dated a guy who was writing software for ibm and I looked at his computer and it was black screen with green numbers 0 and 2 I believe covered the screen and aparantly that was what he was writing. I had a horse Pepe from 2013 to 1018 I did hunter jumper


#28

Haha! Code can look intimidating. But if you’re interested, I’m sure you’ll pick it up quickly! And that’s such a cute horse name!! I’ve never owned a horse, but I do hunter jumper and western. I ride on a drill team and love rescue Clydesdales!

#33

#35

I’ve done a lot of house sitting dog sitting and once helped an old lady, and I did those jobs good but the money isn’t consistent.
I want to get a job with the post office as a mail carrier but I don’t know how to begin. I don’t know what steps to take. Can you help me get started? :grimacing:


#36

Don’t they have a website with job’s they offer? sometimes you can fill in a form on the site.


#37

Try walking into the post office and asking


#38

Baking!!! Baking has uh. Kind of saved my life? I can multitask and prioritize like a boss, and it’s the only part of my life aside from crafting where the majority of my endeavors turn out really good. The kitchen is the only place where I feel like I am in control. The first time I made Swiss meringue buttercream it was like a lightbulb went on in my head.


#39

For a change, I’ll be honest that I am good at some stuff. Especially electrical design engineering stuff.

I am quite good at circuit board layout. As well as analog circuit design, power supply design, and solving related circuit board design issues. I’m also quite good at troubleshooting, but I may end up hyperfocusing if I don’t figure it out immediately. I also have memorized the board designs from the last 10 years at our company so I can quickly solve customer problems/troubleshooting.

I can reliably come up with unique and creative engineering design solutions for new and old products we make.

I lose my keys, or my phone but I know exactly where all my design parts are located as well as other people’s parts. Its a bit ironic since the parts are not inventoried, organized or otherwise in areas that normal people can find. Its quite a mess. In fact all of my work areas are usually a mess.

This I understand. I can remember obscure technical details and I can diagnose faults in systems in a fraction of the time of my peers but I can’t remember the names of people until I have met them 10 times. But I have learnt a valuable lesson from this and that it’s quite offten better to let people figure out stuff on there own even if it’s soooo painful to sit and watch them think at the speed of smell.

I think this is an adhd gift because we can process multiple logical paths at the same time because our brains are used to switching tasks so often. My meds dull this a little but I do make less errors and wrong turns.
