Rick Green, producer of the PBS documentary ADD & Loving It?!, draws upon the psychological underpinning Mark Twain’s classic story of Tom Sawyer turning the onerous chore of painting a fence into a profitable business with a dozen volunteers who are paying him for the privilege of tackling a job. It’s a simple strategy that Rick has used on himself to overcome procrastination in his own life.
