Get yourself unstuck with three easy questions

What are you trying to create that has come to a stand still?

For me it’s been a project that I’m  am really excited about. I’ve been talking about it and yet….. when it comes to creating it, there are some parts of it that where I have totally gotten myself stuck.

I don’t know what you do when you are stuck, but I pretty much tell the story about how I have decided it is.

I had decided that I didn’t know how to do it, that it was too hard, that it would take too long. So with this mindset, every time I sat down to do it, within 5 minutes my attention had wandered off to something else.

What is that you are telling yourself?

So the other day when I sat down and began to have the same old feelings about it. I thought – enough.

I was beginning to see a pattern.

I was going round and round in circles and just getting frustrated because this is something I’m also really excited about.

Ok, what can I be or do different to create this with ease? Question Marks On Monitors Showing Asked Questions Or Confusion

And then I realised that I had been totally in conclusion about it.

Ah, so what if I were to ask a question?

Hmm, what would it take for this to be fun?

What would it take for the information I required to show up with ease?

What else was possible here that I hadn’t considered?

Fast forward three hours later. I had made so much progress, where before I had got myself stuck and frustrated.

And I totally surprised myself by the fun I had creating.

What was it that changed?

Me.

I just chose to ask questions, rather than tell the story. And that created space for something different to show up.

Instead of conclusions, I had more curiosity.

Over to you

What would happen for you if you chose to ask some questions rather than be in conclusion?
