Uplifting Update: Successful Folks with ADHD

e1d57-atoz2019tenthannThese three challenges this month have been undeniably rewarding, but still incredibly tough.  I’ve really been pantsing it lately — especially with my Camp NaNoWriMo project — so I’ve been trying to take my own advice and, when I’m feeling exceptionally blocked or just generally burnt out, letting myself phone it in a bit, sigh, and say, “maybe tomorrow.”

That’s not to say I’m opting to skip days or give up, just that I’ve decided to allow myself a few lighter content days — not every entry has to be soul-searching or intensely researched info dump.  Sometimes, I just need to go easy on myself, and do something simple, quick, and — hopefully — uplifting.

So, when my ADHD feels especially like a hinderence, I like to look up lists of famous or successful people who deal with — or have dealt with — similar issues.

So, to that end, here’s is a (in no way and by no means exhaustive) list of 30 well-known people with ADHD.

  1. Justin Timberlake
  2. Britney Spears
  3. Zoey Deschanel
  4. Michael Phelps
  5. Bill Gates
  6. Emma Watson
  7. Adam Levine
  8. Will Smith
  9. Steven Tyler
  10. Liv Tyler
  11. Whoopi Goldberg
  12. Jack Nicholson
  13. Stephen Hawking
  14. Cher
  15. Dustin Hoffman
  16. Robin Williams
  17. Woody Harrelson
  18. Solange Knowles
  19. Channing Tatum
  20. Sylvester Stallone
  21. Ryan Gosling
  22. Jim Carrey
  23. Jamie Oliver
  24. Will.i.am
  25. Eva Longoria
  26. Jennifer Lawrence
  27. Richard Branson
