Stop Kicking Your Own Community in the Nuts

The world is made of people. Many of these people are shit. So it stands to reason that much of the world is comprised of shit. It is also the right of any person to be stupid or to be an asshole. From time to time one of these assholes infiltrates the ADHD community and posts a video or a blog post about French kids not having ADHD or ADHD not being real and blah blah blah you’ve heard it before.

Very recently there was a video of some blonde bimbo wannabe whore who was in a video and was spouting off about one thing or another. This got A LOT of views. Whatever her name is and what ever she said in this video is not relevant. She is not the problem. The problem is a small handful of YOU! It is you for whom this was written.

Some of you people mean well. Perhaps you think you are helping when you share this kind of material. You share it and say, “Oh this is just awful” or “That’s a terrible betrayal of parents”. I do understand this so let me be as gentle, delicate, and polite as I can possibly be about this and say to you people, “Please stop fucking it up for the rest of us”

Yes, let’s examine what your sharing accomplished. You made thousands of ADHD people feel bad and them put in a defensive position. You have caused them to feel guilt and have doubt about themselves and about their disorder. Oh but it does not stop there! No your gift to the community keeps on giving. The whore who posted the video had a record 6.6 MILLION views with over 64 thousand shares. As a result of this, her google rank is soaring. Now when people to a search for ADHD they will be greeted by a video of the very whore who made you so angry in the first place.

I guess to put it short, You just kicked the entire ADHD community in the nuts! (so to speak)

If you are so hell-bent on drawing attention to yourself and must share things then how about find an ADHD blogger or Podcaster who is out there trying to help people and share their shit. There is Andrew Wilcox Clinton Fetters, Jennie Friedman, Eric Tivers, Laurie Dupar, Terry Matlen and a shit-load of others.

Either pick a hero or be a hero, but stop drilling your own community members in the ass

I am Tom Nardone and you are welcome.

Oh yeah, and go buy my book. Click here

My new friend and fellow “attention whore”, and I had surprisingly never met before this evening and I am amazed at some of the things we have in common. Shawn and I spoke about the worst jobs we ever had and the ways in which we got ourselves fired from them.

Tom Nardone (Rewired?)

Tom Nardone (Rewired?)

Tom RewiredI have never asked for help for my ADHD. I have never tried to be anything more than what I am. I have been content to live each day without worrying about the former or the latter. Recently I decided to be a part of a Productivity & Accountability group run by Eric Tivers at ADHD Rewired.

OH MY!!!!! Is the end of Tom Nardone? Are the days of dirty laundry and days spent on his Xbox over? Uhhh Shit no they are not over. Who in the Hell wants to live I a world without Tom Nardone. I will not be trying to teach you how to remember things or get things done. There are plenty of others doing that. I promise I will continue to entertain you as I celebrate my failures with you as they will no doubt continue.

I am doing this because I am finally curious as to what if anything can be accomplished through coaching. I hear many success stories and I wonder if my story could be counted among them. While there are two or three specific things I would like to accomplish, I am also open to the change this could bring to me as a person, a writer, a podcaster and a husband.

I am scared. Not in a frightened way but I seldom try new things because I do not want to experience the failure I have grown accustomed to. It is scary to me when I venture out of my comfort zone. I have made a mark in the ADHD community as being an advocate for acceptance rather than change. I have no intention of abandoning this, but personally I have things I would like to see improved.

A person who I have come to know and love said to me upon hearing of this, “Tom, You know your wife is going to expect a lot more from you”. To which I replied, “No, she won’t.” I can understand this notion. The truth of the matter is Yvonne will not expect anything more from me. Yvonne is happy with me just the way I am and whether or not any of this works out or not, will not change anything between us.

I did not always believe in the idea of coaching but over the years I have grown and heard too many success stories to discount the value of it. I have had discussions with too many coaches to question the commitment they have to doing what they do. I know many people who are bloggers or podcasters in our community. I think what they do is fantastic, but it is ADHD coaches for which I have the greatest respect.

My podcast has taken up the majority of my time and it feels good to be writing again. I am very excited about my life and I hope this works out for me. I leave room for the chance of failure, but I am committed to taking this seriously and I know there are those who desperately want me to succeed. I can’t really give a shit about what they want tough because I have to do this for myself.

Change can be a good thing. I will be mentioning my progress or lack thereof weekly on The Tom Nardone show with Yvonne. I invite all of you to listen.
