Feeling Stuck

Sometimes, we just feel stuck. Sometimes, it seems too hard to summon up creative juices for creating a vision or even a refreshed resume. When this happens to me, I need to pause, regroup and give myself time to untangle the elements that have derailed me.

Sometimes, we just feel stuck.  Sometimes, it seems too hard to summon up creative juices for creating a vision or even a refreshed resume.

When this happens to me, I notice that I’ve usually knotted a whole bunch of concerns together into one big knot.  I need to pause, regroup and give myself time to untangle the elements that have derailed me.  I’ll call my sister to talk it through in a long phone call.  Or visit my dear friend Bette. Or cook up a feast and give myself a satisfying creative outlet where I can actually produce results.  Or I look at my calendar and clear a half day or a full day to give myself something to look forward to and a guaranteed space for pausing to reflect.

Worst case scenario, I soldier on.  This usually means just delaying the real space that I must find for myself.

What helps you regain your positive momentum and shift out of that condition called “stuck?”

I often find my clients feel they are most stuck (or lost!) when they don’t have a clear picture of where they are trying to go.  Join me and Donna Friedman Meir at the Kidscreen Summit Master Class so that you can go from stuck to moving confidently towards the life and career of your dreams. We’ll help you create an inspiring vision of your own for 2012 and beyond!

Very Best,

Kate
