479 | Juggling Chainsaws with Jesse J. Anderson

479 | Juggling Chainsaws with Jesse J. Anderson

In this episode, Eric is joined by Jesse J. Anderson, a.k.a @ADHDJesse.  Jesse is a writer, speaker, developer, and content creator who was diagnosed with ADHD at 36.  He is the co-founder of Polar Habits, a guilt-free habit app, and he writes a weekly newsletter called Extra Focus.  He is the author (rather, soon-to-be-author!) of Refocus: Thriving with Adult ADHD.  He also has two podcasts and more! 

You’ll hear about leaning into mistakes, what Polar Habits is all about, how breaking a ‘streak’ of habits doesn’t undo your progress, and how changing our environments can impact our habits.   Then, you’ll hear more about habits, perfectionism, prioritization, and the importance of being vulnerable while having a curious and non-judgmental mindset.  Finally, you’ll hear Jesse fill us in about his creative writing process and what prompted him to start writing his book.

Timestamps coming soon!

  1. Absolutely loved this episode! I can relate to so many specific details that Jesse describes about his ADHD thought patterns, especially about being punctual . You two are the Ira Glass and Mike Burbiglia of the ADHD universe.
