Reviews of Master ADD/ADHD Strategist, Organization & Productivity Coach
Susan helped me to organize my life and calm my chaotic mind. My journey to learning how to truly accept myself began the day of our first coaching session. My difficulties with even the seemingly simple day-to-day tasks of time management and reaching goals had led to really low self-esteem. Writing a paper or doing a report was torture - the way that everyone does it didn’t work for me. I knew I was different, and searched websites and organization books for almost 2 years trying different strategies, but nothing worked until I found coaching. The feeling that I had after my first session with Susan Lasky was one that I can’t explain. She took the time, and had the expertise, to help me think outside the box to problem-solve my challenges and come up with solutions and routines that were individually good for me. She helped me to take control of ADHD, and even use it to my advantage. When she talked it was like she was inside my head, because she was so able to help me figure out what worked for me!!! For the first time I had a plan/system that I could actually work with, and it was just for me. I no longer feel like I am falling apart or stressed all of the time, but that I can be organized and happy in a creative way. Susan helped make the impossible possible. Since coaching I have learned how to manage my time better and have enjoyed a better life. It is a lot of work to put these systems into place but the feeling that I accomplished something feels so good. I now know what I am going to do and how to get it accomplished. I am able to plan my day in creative ways that work for me. Coaching has enabled me to start accepting myself in so many ways. It no longer feels like something is wrong with me because I can’t do simple things – I feel empowered. Thank you, Susan – you helped change my life!
I worked with Susan for about a year on a regular basis. She helped me to see aspects of my behavior and habits that I had not previously recognized or understood. Fifteen years later, I am still using techniques I learned from her. It has given me a greater sense of control over my life. I often wish I’d had this kind of focused help when I was young. Just think of all those years of misplacing things, failing to meet deadlines and accumulating piles of papers that could have been prevented!
I have always had a very active work, social and extra-curricular life. But, before I met Susan, things were always out of balance. My pattern was to focus on a few aspects of my life, then shift my focus to another few and so on. Any aspects of my life that I wasn’t currently focusing on would get none of my attention, and I just hoped that no crises would arise in those areas before I turned my attention to them.
Susan helped me to set up systems that enabled me to keep track of what needed to be done. I developed a structure to my life so I could keep enough on top of everything that it was no longer necessary to procrastinate.
I hired Susan as I was starting a new business and thus adding a lot of work to an already overwhelming workload. Susan quickly showed me how to organize not only my workspace but my thinking about my various goals and tasks. She enabled me to identify when I was getting overwhelmed and set a path to get my life back under control. As a result of working with Susan, I have successfully launched my new business and am now juggling my many interests without burning out.
