  • [22:12] – Sara weighs in from the chat and says, “Procrastination is my out from perfectionism.”  This can be a good strategy.
  • [22:50] – Marisol asks how to stop the drive of perfectionism when you recognize it.
  • [25:37] – Marisol has a follow-up question.  She says that at the moment, she acknowledges she’s overdoing it, but it’s hard to stop.

  • [36:05] – Sara says that when her students use fidgets, it’s distracting for others.  Brendan explains that her students need to understand it’s a fidget, not a toy.  I also share my feelings on this topic.

  • [45:59] – Carl joins the call.  His husband has done a lot of research about ADHD, but at times, he sees Carl’s ADHD as work.  He would like his husband to understand his struggles.
