No!!! Passion + Interest does not = Success – Despite what some professionals in the ADHD Community are telling you. Passion plus interest is only part of the equation. When talking about adults with ADHD we can't forget the other parts of the equation.
Saying passion + interest = success is like saying that 2 pieces of bread makes sandwich. The bread is the most important part of the sandwich but alone does not make a sandwich. Just like Passion + Interest may be the most important keys to success but alone do not create success.
We can't forget the fact that we need systems in place and that we need balance in our lives. Though we should not focus primarily on our challenges and weaknesses we can't just pretend they don't exist. We do need to manage our challenges and weakness and sometimes improve them also.
