1. INTERRUPT vs. CLARIFY:
If you interrupt a speaker because of a desire to communicate or an impulsive thought triggered by something the speaker has said, this is indicative of ADD behavior.
2. DOGGED vs. DEVOTED:
If you have a determined course of action despite a sound rationale or belief in the action or are dogged in the determination of stubbornness or to prove a point, this is indicative of ADD behavior.
3. DOING THINGS RIGHT vs. GETTING THINGS DONE:
If you say "I can't do it perfectly or be the best at what I am going to do, I won't do it at all." This type of internalizing impedes any type of progress or action, this is indicative of ADD behavior.
4. BOGGLE vs. STUCK:
If you lose all sensory function and literally freeze, finding it difficult to conduct any type of mental activity with your sense or senses are temporarily halted, this is indicative of ADD behavior.
5. ORGANIZATION vs. SYSTEM:
If you cannot overcome a problem area or weakness that results in procrastination, impulsivity, anger, forgetfulness, or loss of self-esteem, this is indicative of ADD behavior.
6. UNDERSTANDING vs. COMPASSION:
UNDERSTANDING is comprehension from the mind without the emotion and endorsement. COMPASSION is the ability to understand, endorse and perceive from the heart, mind and soul. It is a natural skill developed from knowing who you are and feeling totally comfortable with yourself. If these areas present a problem to you, this is indicative of ADD behavior.
7. IMAGE vs. SELF-ESTEEM:
IMAGE is the impression or view others have of you. If your self-image is that of low-energy, negative, failure, or being told they are underachievers, this is indicative of ADD behavior.
8. CAN'T vs. WON'T:
CAN'T really means you can't do something in the way a person who has Polio can't walk or a person who is blind can't see. If WON'T is a reaction that you provide when you probably could do something, but won't because of an inherently learned weakness (B&W Thinking, procrastination, poor self-esteem) because you have convinced yourself that you are incapable of accomplishing a specific task or activity, this is indicative of ADD behavior.
9. COMMAND vs. DELEGATE:
COMMANDing is communication via a directive or order which specifically states the task to be accomplished and their responsibilities. DELEGATing is the ability to communicate specific instructions with a positive attitude and message that motivates a person to complete a task or goal. If you react negatively to being commanded to do something, this is indicative of ADD behavior.
10. FINISH vs. COMPLETE:
FINISHing a task is the perception of having completed the project. If, in reality, there are still elements that are left undone or hanging for someone else to come back and complete and you believe the task to be finished, this is indicative of ADD behavior.
11. VELOCITY vs. DIRECTION:
If velocity is the speed at which you react to situations, events in your life, due to the impulsivity that you may inherently have as a result of a deficiency in the neurotransmitter activity of the prefrontal cortex. Direction is a focused response that you learn to implement based on sound rationale and information gathering that allows "thinking" time for a controlled rational response. If you react with Velocity rather than Direction, this is indicative of ADD behavior.
12. DREAM vs. VISION:
DREAMing is the beginning stages of the creation of the Entrepreneurial vision.
Dreaming starts off as a page dream of fantasy of the things that the entrepreneur loves and has a passion for. It is created and stored in the subconscious mind but begins with a dominant thought. VISION takes the dream and makes it reality. It manifests itself through the conscience mind and it is a synthesis of the Entrepreneur's dreams, values, passion, desire and the life they want to live. By articulating their VISION on paper as a means to creating a business that meets the life of their dreams, the business starts to take shape in the real world and can be communicated to the people who will help make the vision a reality. To engage in a dream rather than act upon your vision is indicative of ADD behavior.
