Hello WA family and friends...
Recently I had more conversations than ever before with folks who used the word “stuck” when they described themselves.
There are always a variety of reasons for feeling this way, but here’s something I’ve noticed in my 35+ years in the business - and that is, you’re only as stuck as you think you are.
Sure, you’re crazy busy with your family and your job. I get it.
We all are.
But if you are unhappy with your progress... make the time.
Put it on your schedule – like you do all the other important things in your life.
Everything you do during your scheduled “Getting Myself Unstuck Times” needs to be documented.
- Write down your goals
- Your plan to get there
- Track your progress toward meeting your goal, just like you would with your business.
We all know it only matters if it gets tracked and measured. Once you have your goals and a plan for obtaining them written down, share it.
That’s the hard part. Making it real.
Share with your spouse, good friend, or better yet, with a career coach. You have to share it so that you have someone “holding you accountable.” Schedule regular check-ins with that person to review your progress toward your goal.
All they really have to do is listen; you’ll do the work by being prepared for that meeting. And if you are not… you’ll know.
It’ll be clear as you must explain your lack of progress toward your goal since the last meeting. Make a promise to yourself to get “unstuck” by getting on your own schedule and making accountability for your desire to become unstuck a priority.
... So, what are you or someone you know, going to do if you're feeling stuck?
As always, your feedback and comments are welcome!
Thank you for reading this blog...wishing all a VERY productive week!
