It’s a bird, it’s a plane! It’s A Man of Distraction (and perseverance) to the rescue! Who else acts before thinking ahead other than a superhero?
As a singer songwriter, writer of music and poetry, Kelly Babcock is used to sharing his gifts with the world.
Today however, he shares a story of another amazing skill he has, jumping in and doing something before thinking ahead of potential dangers. Superhero or impulsivity?
So, kick back and have a listen and then be sure to check out his work on Psych Central.
There, he also has two columns: A Man of Distraction and Today I Love.
You can also find Kelly with his band, Hot Black Coffee, on Youtube and Reverb Nation (see links below)
Kelly’s Awesome Quote:
“You think you are focusing on something important..
but you’re not DOING that…you couldn’t tear
yourself away from it even if you wanted to.”
As well as impulsivity, Kelly and I also discuss perseverance. Our Man of Distraction (great superhero name) is gifted with words after all.
He explains that he learned from ADHD experts about how folks with ADHD don’t actually hyper focus, they “suffer from perseverance.”
Resources mentioned include Dr Russell Barkey, Dr Ned Hallowell and Nancy Ratey.
Kelly’s sense of humor always makes our time together so much fun. (Again, I laugh too much)
Please do let us know, in the comments below, what you think of the show.
