Episode 12: Success Amnesia & the Default Mode Network (Part 2)

Welcome to The ADHD Lounge podcast! Whether you're someone with ADHD or a learning disability, or just curious to learn more, come hang out with us in the Lounge! We’re your hosts, Katy Weber & Alex Gilbert.

Welcome to Episode 12. In this episode, Alex & Katy talk about our own experiences with success amnesia and the difficulty many of us with ADHD have with recognizing and celebrating our personal achievements. We explore the tendency to downplay accomplishments and constantly focus on the next task, as well as the challenge of being present and appreciating the learning process.

We also discuss the importance of reframing success and finding meaningful ways to celebrate milestones. And we share what approaches we use with ourselves and with our coaching clients to help redefine success and achievement from a neurodivergent lens.
