Being stuck serves a spiritual purpose. It is fertile ground for transformation to occur. It tells you that a change is needed. ~ 7 Ways to get unstuck, HuffPost Healthy Living

No one has to tell you. You know when you’re stuck. You know how it affects you; you feel alone and sad and hopeless.

But being stuck isn’t the worst place to be. Think of it as a wakeup call. And getting the right answers often means asking the right questions.

Here are 10 questions I found on Leadership Freak that help me when I’m stuck

  1. What do you want?
  2. What does success look like?
  3. What have you tried that didn’t work?
  4. What should you stop doing?
  5. What could you try?
  6. Which options generate energy?
  7. How would you describe the behavior?
  8. When will you try it?
  9. What will you not have done, if you fail?
  10. How will you assess progress?

These questions function well as a screening exercise for me – professionally and personally. I particularly like question 6.

It immediately shines a light on any bullshit answers; in effect, saving me tons of time.


How might these questions help you? How do you get unstuck?
