It happens to all of us.
Decisions get pushed to the back burner-for the umpteenth time. Projects stall out on your desk or laptop screen. Motivation, productivity, and creativity disappear. And you are officially STUCK.
First the bad news: Being stuck takes up a huge amount of energy.
Bertrand Russell was right, “Nothing is so exhausting as indecision, and nothing is so futile.”
The good news: You Can Get Unstuck!
Try this simple technique. It’s called the 3-E Approach.
The 3 E’s are:
- Eliminate: Stop doing something. Sometimes we need to lighten the load.
- Experiment: Try something new. Completely out-of-the-box!
- Enjoy: Decide that for now, you are going to let go of being stuck and just experience life to its fullest.
The 3 E’s are an easy way to shift perspective or approach. Shifting from one “E” to another is often just enough of a shift to help you get un-stuck.
Give it a try!
