Sometimes we get stuck and don’t know what to do.
There could be a lot of choices and we are paralyzed because there are pros and cons each way.
There could be no apparent choices and we are paralyzed because we think any action will be fruitless.
When we get stuck, the best way out is to do something.
Make a deliberate choice. Implement it. See what happens.
You learn by taking action. You become informed at a higher level. As you learn, you build a foundation. The next action you take will be a better one. You will know at least one more thing that doesn’t work or you will be able to improve on an action that saw mixed results.
If you find yourself not progressing because you aren’t sure, take a deep breath. Come up with an action step and do it.
