I had a conversation with a friend that got me out of my rut.His words unintentionally changed how I'll approach life.
"We keep coming back to this same idea, but we never get very far with it. Let's move on and focus on something new," he said.
In this particular instance, he was referring to a business venture we've been planning. However, I got to thinking.
This applies to everything.
I've wanted to write a book, but I can't ever seem to get my thoughts on the page. So I'm moving on and focusing on something new.
I've been working on a project that's currently in stand still and facing a brick wall. So I'm moving on and focusing on something new.
I'm reading a book that's got me in stalemate. So I'm moving on and focusing on something new.
Normally, when things stall out, I label it as “tension,” and work to find a way to counteract or balance everything out. However, that’s stressful, and a waste of my time.
Like my friend, Bob says, “Do less of what you stink at!”
