Does a day at work feel like you're "coming and going"?

Updated: Mar 16, 2020

Does a day at work feel something like this sculpture? It's called "Coming and Going" by Les Kossatz.

When we feel like we're coming and going at work, we can feel really stuck.

You're working hard but when you lift your head up, you haven't moved very far.

If you're feeling a bit stuck, and you need to get unstuck, here are four things you can do.

1. Press pause and take a step back from what is going on

2. Picture the problem. That is, imagine that you are describing the challenge to someone, and create a diagram that shows what is going on.

3. Plot a path. In other words, look at the picture you've created and draw some stepping stones leading out of it. In each stepping stone write an option.

4. Pick one and do it.

Remember, to get unstuck, you don't need all the answers, you just need one.
