When working toward a goal, it’s never one simple, clear path. There are windy roads with twists and turns. Sometimes, it leads us to a stop and we get stuck. Maybe we stay stuck because it seems daunting to go any other direction. Ever been in this position before? We’ve been there and it’s tough to get unstuck. Here are a few things you can do:
- Revisit your vision board and goals
Go one step further than thinking about your why. Look - and we mean really look - at your vision board and goals you wrote out. If you don’t have these, no problem.
