PHOTOS | This happens to even the most focused and motivated entrepreneurs. Sit down at your desk and open your laptop that is ready to change the world and then BAM: a few hours later in your browser you get lost in the sea with tabs and you forgot to eat.
Hyperfocus and deterrence seems to be characterized by the characteristic features of many entrepreneurs, but there are also generally recognized features of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Imagine that I was trying to develop my company for one year when I was diagnosed with ADHD in adults. Although it was initially difficult to understand my reality, I soon realized that most of the disruptive properties had also become a successful entrepreneur. Instead of allowing my diagnosis to limit my abilities, I overcome the stigma associated with ADHD and built thousands of dollars in business in just two years.
I'm not the only entrepreneur with a hyperactivity disorder in a lack of attention. Richard Branson, director and founder of Virgin Airlines, did not want to limit his own diagnosis of ADHD and dyslexia. The author and award-winning Pulitzer Prize winner Katherine Ellison is an enthusiastic speaker on how to live with a disorder. And the founder of JetBlue Airways, David Neeleman, always shares his experience with entrepreneurship with a lack of attention.
As entrepreneurs, it's difficult to push yourself, which includes criticism of yourself and our limitations, whether it's an ADHD or another alternate learning situation. But if Branson could start a business like Virgin Airlines, and you can do it too.
Here are five features of ADHD that could scientifically contribute to a better entrepreneur and, if you take them with philosophy, you can change into super power.
