Dopamine is the reward neurotransmitter. It is the reason we procreate and forage for food. It is also the neurotransmitter center stage for addictive behavior and at issue with ADHD. Procreating and seeking food are pleasurable. For many with ADHD, foraging for information on the Internet is pleasurable. So pleasurable, in fact, that it impacts their lives negatively in relationships, at work, and in other important parts of daily life. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, ADHD coach Jeff Copper (www.digcoaching.com) interviews retired ADHD career coach Wilma Fellman. They talk about how that many of those with ADHD have multiple degrees and certifications but remain unemployed or have an extensive job history, all short on duration; how that many rationalize the next degree to be the step to employment when it is just another reason to learn something new; the dynamics and the difference between learning and execution. Their goal is to create awareness of what a learning addiction is as a prerequisite to Part 2 (http://tobtr.com/11639821). If you have multiple degrees and seem to be struggling to execute, this is the show for you.
