Have you noticed how if nothing changes, nothing changes?
I know it’s a bit obvious, but sometimes it is up to us to change a situation.
For example, I have been writing a proposal for the last week or so and have been struggling. I just couldn’t get in to it. So I decided a change of geography would shift my mindset. I took my sexy new netbook to a shopping centre and did the majority of the work in a couple of hours. A simple change got me over my mental block.
What about you? What simple changes can you make when you are stuck – a geographical change (even if it is just changing desks), a physical change (go for a walk) or a mental change (call someone else and ask how they are and don’t mention your stuff)?
Next time you get stuck, try something different – you have to make the change happen sometimes.
