Yes -- I do the same: accumulate until I haven't got time to breathe, then swing the pendulum to the other end of the continuum and get rid of everything. Lather, rinse, repeat! Lately I've been better about not adding more activities than I can handle but also seem to be worse at getting rid of the overload. Progress, not perfection!

That sounds like me. I never could find my niche in life. For me, I think more disadvantage than advantage. When you have great potential in a specific area and are distracted by other "shiny" interests, you may not reach that place that will give you the most satisfaction.

I go through a cycle, of adding activities that interest me until I am overwhelmed and then pare down to what I think are the most important to my life. If i don't pare down, I don't progress.

Are You a Multipotentialite? Isn't that a great word? I think it's a way to describe those of us who struggle with the magpie syndrome ("Oooo! Shiny!), and I now think my magpie syndrome is one of the benefits/disadvantages of my ADD.

What do you think?
