Have you recently noticed that you…

Get “lost” in things that you are interested in, but can’t focus on things you don’t enjoy?
Often get side-tracked by things that pop into your head that results in getting off task?
Find yourself missing deadlines and avoiding or procrastinating with things that require more in-depth thought?
Are quick to react and say things or make decisions without slowing down to consider the consequences?
