Are you constantly distracted, overwhelmed, and swamped by a never-ending to-do list? You're not alone.

For many years, I felt like my brain was broken. 

I often had SO many ideas swirling around in my head that I couldn’t focus. Other times, I just felt crushed under the weight of everything that “had to get done”... No matter how hard I worked, I could never seem to perform at the level I wanted to. Deep down, I knew I had more to offer.

If you can relate to any of this, you’re going to love today’s episode of MarieTV. 

My guest today, Dr. Ned Hallowell, is one of the world’s leading authorities on ADHD. Whether you have a diagnosis or not, learning how to focus is a superpower in today’s hyperconnected, busy, and distracting-by-design world.

  • Why we fall victim to “screensucking” and how to snap out of it.
  • The secret words you need to never overcommit again.
  • 3 steps to quit worrying and start succeeding.
