If you’re stuck

If you’re stuck, stop bemoaning the fact that you’re stuck. Start working on a different approach.

Being stuck has nothing to do with the goal, with your purpose. Being stuck is all about the route you’re taking, and that’s something you can quickly change.

Stop agonizing, wondering, planning, debating what you’re going to do. Don’t give yourself the opportunity to talk yourself out of action.

Instead, choose another path and start making your way along that path. You’ll find out quickly enough whether it’s going to work.

If you get stuck again, you’ll gain nothing by being upset or frustrated about it. Simply step onto yet another path, and go.

Being stuck is a challenge, one you can overcome with action. Be persistent and flexible in your action, and you won’t be stuck for long.

— Ralph Marston
