Today’s question for the @winniekao #yourturnchallenge is “What advice would you give for getting unstuck?”
I must confess I needed to look up “unstuck”. I also need to look at other #yourturnchallenge posts, such as this one, by Maria Aldrey – @Kirisima. She suggested several links for people wanting to get “unstuck”. I clicked on the link that lead to a website named “Unstuck” and also skimmed their twitter feed. I became immersed in the wealth of tips for getting “unstuck”, for a wide range of situations.
The advice is certainly helpful, and as I read it, I reflected on what I wanted to be unstuck from, and how I would get “unstuck”. I would add to all the advice for getting unstuck, by urging those who are “stuck” to clearly articulate their desired outcome.
If you don’t like your job and are considering a career move, a desired outcome might be, “I want a job where I am able to use my talents, enjoy my day to day role, and regularly feel rewarded by the results I achieve.” From there, you can start to consider your talent, and what careers might match them, then move forward, and hopefully become “unstuck”.
If there is a relationship in your life (family, friends, work) that has gone sour, the desired outcome might be, “I want to have a positive and respectful working relationship with X.” From there, possibly with help, you may be able to craft a conversation that moves the relationship back to a more productive state.
If you are “stuck”, in a rut, wondering how to successfully resolve a situation, visit Unstuck and clarify your desired outcome.
