In 2009, Ron and June worked with their oldest grandson, Trey, to add structure into his life that would allow him to control the negative characteristics of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) including distractibility, inattention, impulsivity, and restlessness. While researching ADD, Ron was introduced to the positive characteristic of, qHYPERFOCUS.q This allows people with ADD to focus intently, with passion, creativity, and enthusiasm on things they are interested in. Ron also realized that the tools and structure he has spent his entire career teaching to others were all based on the same principles needed by people with ADD. They require permanent structure, and perhaps medication, to overcome the negative characteristics and benefit from the positive characteristic of Hyperfocus and creativity: Setting long-term goals for 15-years out. Breaking these goals down into 3-year increments. Setting goals for the current year by months. Preparing a calendar for the current month. Preparing a qTo Doq list for what has to be done today. Becoming motivated and focused on the qTo Doq list, in order of priority, knowing that you will be successful in reaching your life goals and dreams.Trey made a aquot;Baquot; average the second semester of the tenth grade, while taking Advanced English, Spanish, Biology, ... of the semester because he failed to complete a 100-point assignment on the Friday before the Monday morning final exam.
