Dr. Hallowell gives his spin on Stephen Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, with a similar list for those with ADHD. From doing what you're good at, to asking for advice, you're bound to find a few nuggets of applicable wisdom for your own life. But as Ned advises, this is his list, so if these habits don't resonate with you, add your own to the list!

The new-millennium workplace requires all of us to rewrite the rules and start treating our careers like we’re running a business—which means understanding the markets for our talents, knowing our value, and looking out over the horizon to plot our paths going forward, according to Human Resources pro, Liz Ryan, author of Reinvention Roadmap, and CEO of Human Workplace. Liz is a former Fortune 500 HR SVP and the world’s most widely read workplace thought leader. The former opera singer-turned-HR exec talks with Ned about how to flourish at work, when it's okay to say no, and how to make sure you find the right job in the first place.
