Get Unstuck! – Day 20

Reset Your Thinking Day 20 – Get Unstuck!

“I need to find creative diversity because if I get stuck, I get unhappy.” –Jill Scott
ResetThe year has just begun do you feel you hit a plateau in life? Do you feel like you’re going through a phase that lacks significant progress? Are you still trying to figure out what to do with your life?

Some people refer to this as being “stuck in a rut.” I just call it stuck. And once identified, sometimes it’s a mystery how to get unstuck. Your lackluster outlook might have you encountering a sense of “blah” not happy or depressed just not content and craving something different. You might also feel exhausted, off-track, unmotivated or worried. All of those are normal experiences that you may not give much thought to when you’re at your best, but every once in a while these unwelcome little obstacles catch up and it’s a struggle to move forward. So what do you do to get unstuck?

My number one job as a Leader is supporting people as they move forward, primarily because they’re stuck, stuck in jobs, relationships, health and more.  So here are some ways to help you get out of a rut:

  1. Face your fears-  What exactly is stopping you from moving forward? 
  2. Define your goals – run a vision board workshop at the change of every season because one vision board per lifetime (or year, even) is never enough.
  3. Set a reward for breakthroughs –Determine short-term milestones and rewards. What are your turning points?

Once you apply these steps above you will have a sense of direction. Your will break significant barriers and become unstuck making new achievements. Take one step at a time.. to come out of the rut you’re in.  #StartByResettingYourThinking

Time Wasters-Day 19

Reset Your Thinking – Day 19 Time Wasters

Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.” –William Shakespeare

ResetDo you have a “time-waster,” of which you are guilty?  Mine is being on the Internet too long. I find that if I go online at the end of my workday or at least until I finish the most important tasks of the day, I am more productive and less likely to “wander” around in cyberspace.

Time is a very precious resource. The fact is that regardless of how well you manage time, at the end of a day, you will still only have had 24 hours. In one year there are still only 8,760 hours. The key is using your time efficiently and eliminating time wasters from your day. Your attitudes and behaviors affect how you use your time. Below are some examples of ineffective use of time. By substituting what’s not working for you with a more effective behavior and/or attitude you’re on the road to managing your time. You can start with..

  1. Less Interruptions/Distractions
  2. Organizing and planning your dayIm
  3. Implementing.. stop putting off things to do-procrastinator
  4. Being easy on yourself lighten up perfectionist
  5. Stop trying to do everything yourself
  6. Evaluating the task – take on as much as you can handle
  7. Having a crisis management plan in place
  8. Limiting your socializing (have a time frame)
  9. Retooling yourself if you’re lacking in skills

Time is of the essence, this is the time to be more productive, more efficient. Stop wasting time. Take the time to reflect, access and document how and where you’re wasting your time. #ResetYourThinking #StopWastingTime
