Let me tell you about Rachel Cotton. Other than the half-eaten peanut butter and jelly sandwich on foccacia bread that's strangely taking up half her headshot, she's one of the most hyper-focused people I've ever met. Possibly even more than me, and that is saying a LOT. Also, she loves Daft Punk. My kind of woman.

But, she proves a point - Having a faster brain really DOES mean we can do anything. There's something to be said for having a playlist for your workouts, AND a playlist for your WORK. Like many of us, she's a regular person, making her mark in a world that's just a little bit slower. She has a really impressive backstory, and I think you're going to enjoy this interview. Pay special attention to the parts where she talks about how she handles projects that require massive amounts of focus. There's some gold in there. Enjoy!

    Cannot wait to have the conversation with my son about the ideas of hyperfocusing and use of music and exercise. Declaring ADHD a gift is changing the relationship between me and my son. I am so grateful.
