The studies show adults with ADHD do much better… at everything… when they add accountability to their tools. If you want to get things done but you don’t have the structure you’d like, this is the group for you. Do you struggle with:
- forgetting things?
- keeping track of what you’re doing (and what you’re supposed to be doing)?
- starting tasks, and staying focused until they are complete?
Accountability can help you get more of anything done. We will meet every weekly to discuss progress and set new priorities for the week ahead. We all help each other with support, routine check-ins, and mutual effort.
What do you do?
- Choose at least 3 items you’ll report on each meeting.
- Stay on point – you can talk about other things, AFTER you’ve shared your results.
- Commit to the weekly meeting (in an emergency, you may have to miss it – but don’t make it a habit.)
- What’s said in the group stays in the group.
What we’ll do.
- If you’re stuck, we’ll lead the group to help you.
- Start and End on time. It’s an important part of being accountable to each other!
- Track commitments and progress together. We will maintain a shared Google document noting participants SMART goals for each week.
Keep Goals Smart
- Specific – Rather than “get more exercise,” say “ I will workout 3 times this week.”
- Measurable – Can you tell when you have achieved the goal? For example “Read chapters 1 & 2.”
- Attainable – The goal should be achievable, even if it’s a stretch.
- Relevant – Each small goal should relate to whatever your bigger goals are.
- Time-bound – Be clear when you will complete each goal.
Join us Tuesdays as we support each other and get more done.
Group Leader Information
Brittany Smith – bio
Brittany Smith, MS, is a productivity, ADHD, and technology coach in Portland, Oregon. She has a Master’s of Science degree from a cognitive neuroscience lab at the University of Oregon. While at the UO, Brittany began observing practical applications of cognitive science; how people work and interact with their devices every day. Now Brittany uses cognitive science to help her clients get more done: whether they are trying to graduate high school, setting up and customizing their computing systems, or starting a business. The nerd is strong with this one: Brittany uses geeky pop culture to make the concepts behind “productivity” more approachable and fun. She is always exploring new ways we can get more done, with less drain on our cognitive resources. She’s recently moved into creating videos about ADHD and technology, and has even made a silly yoga video for nerds.

Devise & Conquer Coaching
Doug’s life history is filled with wide-ranging experiences that include designing business software, custom car fabrication, serving on a submarine nuclear engineering team, and learning to pilot airplanes to name just a few. He has been unknowingly exploiting the gift of life with ADHD.
After being diagnosed as an adult with ADHD, Doug has focused his energies on learning how to make the most of it. For several years he participated in small group coaching and peer-mentoring with intelligent, like-minded adults. This experience of learning with and from other ADHDers has given Doug great insight into the possibilities of excelling with ADHD.
