Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of different coaches and other self-help people encouraging people to break the rules. I worry a bit about people with Adult ADHD when somebody suggests they break the rules. Many people with Adult ADHD will just break the rules with out thinking about things!

I’m not suggesting either way to break the rules or not to break rules. What I am suggesting is to ask yourself some questions:

  • What about the "rule" is not working for you?
  • What are some possible consequences of breaking the rules?
  • What can you do as an alternative to breaking the rules?

I think it’s important that if somebody is going to break the rules that it’s thought out and not just done for the sake just breaking the rules.

      I think your blog is great, and I would like to feature you on the new
      Wellsphere. We feature only the best health bloggers on our WellPages,
      which are special pages that our Health Knowledge Engine crafts to give
      our users answers to their health questions. We would feature you on all
      the pages on topics that our knowledge engine finds are related to your

      What in the hell are rules? I’ve yet to figure them out. They feel more like constraints.
