    Hmm…interesting question. It sounds like you tend to drift when engaged in something pretty routine, mundane, or repetitive. But when you’re engaged in something, this is less likely to happen?

    Diagnosing ADHD in a formal way is a pretty involved process. It includes documenting a history of inattention going back into childhood, so if this is a more recent occurrence, it’s probably not something that is clinically diagnosable as ADHD. You certainly could consult with a psychiatrist or a psychologist who specializes in ADHD (this is a specialized area that some psychologists will specialize in – a general psychologist usually doesn’t have the training to be able to diagnose/treat as effectively).

    I’m curious about your sleep. Maybe it’s not related, but how well are you sleeping?

    And how long have you noticed this happening?

    Perhaps you can email me directly; none of this information is personally identifiable, but it’s probably better to keep further details private rather than public, I suspect.

There's an LIVE component too! (for educators)

If you’d like to explore some of the most essential skills and techniques in the course live, with a cohort of curious, thoughtful, supportive, and like-minded educators (and a few mildly irreverent or benevolently sarcastic folks mixed in to make sure we don’t get too serious), that’s also an option!

Starting Thursday, February 3rd, we’ll meet via Zoom once a week, and go through selected strategies related to effective practice, managing nerves, and achieving flow states under pressure. We’ll do some in-class playing experiments (don’t worry – you’ll be muted!), short weekly homework assignments, and small-group breakout sessions to help you integrate these new skills into your teaching.

This 6-week live course is normally $199, but is available at 50% off the regular cost when bundled with Beyond Practicing. For more details about the live course (and dates) CLICK HERE.
