Are you always late to work? Are you so distractible that you have trouble completing projects on time, or do you get bogged down for hours on some minor task? Maybe you can't find your phone under the mountain of paperwork on your desk.
From time to time, everyone confronts such things on the job and could use a little career advice. But for adults with attention deficit disorder (ADD ADHD), staying on top of details at work is an endless struggle — one that brings conflict with managers, missed promotions, and a stalled career.
On average, studies suggest, college graduates with ADD earn $4,300 less per year than their peers who don't have ADD. People with ADD change jobs frequently — often impulsively — and are more likely to be fired, to miss work, and to have troubled relationships with co-workers. It doesn't have to be that way: Adults with ADD frequently excel in the workplace, once they adapt to their disability and develop coping skills.
