That experience grounded DeYoung in a more generalized fear that drove his career. He knew that it was possible that his rock and roll dream simply might not work for him and was determined to make sure he achieved his dreams. And thus, just as his songwriting method was simple and straightforward, so was DeYoung’s motivation to achieve in his career. “Fear of failure. That's what drives us all. That's it,” DeYoung described. “... My philosophy has always been that what drives us, fear as much as anything else is a great motivator,” he said. “I think the idea of fear of failure is wrapped up with a quest for perfection.

The traits that define ADHD—focus, cognitive control, inhibitory control (self-control), and sensitivity to reward (which drives motivation)—are traits that are fundamental to human functioning.

And when you get off stage, you don’t want it to end, but it does. There’s a come down from it, and I think that a lot of musicians turn to drugs to stay up there. And on the flip side of that, if it’s a shit show, and there’s 10,000 people looking at you like you’ve got two heads, you can try to escape from that in a similar fashion. So, I think one of the reasons this band has been able to maintain it for as long as we have is, we have a very marked delineation between [being on stage and off].” … [Read more...] about The Universal Truth of Clutch’s Neil Fallon
It is generally recommended that people begin light therapy in the early fall and continue to use it through the spring. It is also usually best when the light is used in the morning soon after awakening. As noted above, it is important to avoid looking at the light directly. So simply putting it on a table or a desk while having breakfast, checking email, reading the paper, putting on cosmetics, or using your phone is perfectly fine to do. In fact, any way you can integrate using the light into your morning routine will help establish the consistency of use that is important for optimum therapeutic benefits. … [Read more...] about ‘Tis the Season to Be… Not Jolly
For one thing, it makes more sense than ever this year. According to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Addiction (NIAAA), alcohol use disorders are spiking during this time of quarantines, isolating lockdowns, civil unrest, and economic uncertainty. The NIAAA also reports that although opioids sometimes get more public attention, alcohol continues to be the most harmful and abused substance in the US. … [Read more...] about Dry January: What Is It, and Why You Should Try It
