Whether you are facing a challenging project at work, considering making a career change, or simply looking for some new inspiration in your life, it may be difficult to take that first step.  Perhaps you are in a career that you studied long and hard for, but now wonder if it’s the right one for you.  Perhaps you are in the right career, but your simply not at the right company, or not in the right position yet.

What would your life look like if you felt inspired  How about, if I could just get finished with this next project, I could relax and do something fun.

Let me say that, if you find that you are generally a high performing individual, but occasionally you find yourself stuck, you are not alone.  Many people feel that they are capable of far more than they are currently doing, but they just don’t know how to get more accomplished.  There are constant interruptions, changes, and demands in our lives, and often it can be difficult to prioritize or sort through all the options…particularly if we feel that we have little control over our work.

When you are feeling overwhelmed or stuck there are two great things that you can do.  One is Get Help.  Do you have a friend, a mentor, a coach, a professional resource that can help you sort thru your current challenge?  If yes, make that call.  If No, find someone.

Two, take one step in the right direction.  When we find ourselves paralyzed by the road in front of us, just take one step at a time.  Try and recall another time in your life when you may have been uncertain, how did you move forward.  Think about breaking the task into small steps and simply do one step at a time.
