Impossible to get stuck

Why are you stuck? Because where you’re going is just not all that compelling.

Oh, it might sound impressive and exciting and desirable. But if it was all that desirable, you would not have let yourself get stuck.

So here’s what you must do. Give yourself something to look forward to.

Don’t make it completely out of reach, but don’t make it just any old thing either. Make it something you know you can do, and something you would crawl across broken glass to accomplish.

Then commit yourself to doing it. If at this point you still seem to be stuck, go back and raise the stakes until you can feel your goal pulling you forward.

Aim higher in a way that’s meaningful to the core. And you’ll make it impossible to get stuck.

— Ralph Marston
