Hey Wonderful Souls!
It’s Coaching Q & A time!
Q: I’m really stuck on a specific project. I just can’t figure out the best step to take next and I’m up against a deadline for my boss or a customer. How do I get unstuck?
A: First, take a deep breath! I believe often in these situations that one of the best things we can do is step away even if just for a few minutes. I have found when we are right in the “face” of the project or piece we are working on that we can’t see what is working, what is not and what could be next if we don’t gain a little perspective. I get when you are on a deadline it’s easy to feel like you don’t have even 15 minutes to step fully away from it. But in truth it’s often the case that we are not making any progress on it anyways by “staring” at it. Do something totally unrelated to what you are working on then go back to it. If you are still stuck try some or all of the following ideas:
1-If you can step away a little bit longer, maybe even go outside get some air!
2-Once you have stepped away a little bit try looking at it for what does work, what is good,then once you have that it’s often easier to tell what is maybe out of place or not working- make a list
3-Talk it through with someone, I have found that talking it outloud is sometimes very helpful in situations that you are feeling stuck on.
4-Think back to what the objective of the project is in the first place and look at what you have/where you are and go from there.
5-Ask for help where you know you really need it
And as a sidenote, don’t forget to celebrate your accomplishment when you are done!

I am working on starting a new category on the blog for coaching questions, if you have a question you would like to ask me as a coach I would love to hear from you.
