Tara and Lynne begin by discussing some of the reasons why it can be particularly challenging for individuals with ADHD to maintain momentum. They acknowledge that difficulties with attention, organization, and time management can often derail progress and lead to a sense of frustration and overwhelm. They also address the tendency for individuals with ADHD to become easily bored or lose interest in tasks, which can impede their ability to stay focused and engaged.
One of the key strategies discussed is the importance of setting clear goals and breaking them down into smaller, manageable steps. Tara and Lynne highlight the significance of having a roadmap or plan in place to guide individuals with ADHD in their journey towards achieving their objectives. By breaking tasks into smaller chunks, individuals can maintain a sense of progress and avoid feeling overwhelmed by the magnitude of the overall goal.
The co-hosts also emphasize the value of utilizing external supports and accountability. They encourage listeners to seek out a support network, whether it be through joining a support group or enlisting the help of a coach or mentor.

Furthermore, Tara and Lynne address the potential impact of negative self-talk and self-criticism on maintaining momentum. They encourage individuals to challenge their negative inner dialogue and replace it with more supportive and empowering thoughts. By cultivating a positive mindset and practicing self-compassion, individuals can overcome self-imposed limitations and stay motivated on their journey.
Throughout the episode, Tara and Lynne provide practical tips and strategies to help individuals with ADHD maintain momentum.
