Feeling stuck?

Here’s a free ‪#‎teamcrispycrow‬ tip we all use:

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!’

Here’s what else I’ve found to help:
