Feeling stuck?

To Get Unstuck!

Act unlike yourself. Behave in a way completely outside of regular. Do everything backwards for a day. Leave for work an hour early… Drop in to visit someone, take a walk, buy someone a cupcake and deliver it to their door. Repeat nuttiness for a good week and see if that helps.

‘Stuck’ is just sometimes a symptom of habit. If you give your habit a bit of a shake about, you can usually jiggle loose your ‘stuck’ as well.

I am practicing this new habit-ruffle this week as I seem to be sliding through a plateau. My business has taken off at light speed and I have been bounding through tackling new challenges and writing like a literary demon to keep up. I still have fabulous and inspiring work in the pipeline, but my fingers are hovering over the keyboard trying to figure out where to start. I am not exactly stuck… more like – ‘at recess’.

But there’s no delicious ‘little lunch’ waiting for me so I am going to have to use my powers of ‘unstuck – edness!’

Changing Your Perceptions? It’s A Bit Magic

I wasn’t sure I was a Mumpreneur. In fact, I wasn’t convinced I am an entrepreneur, even without the gender specific label in front. Not in the pure sense of the term. A business owner; yep. A creative in business; possibly closer. A paid writer; yahoo! Finally. And a...
