Ever have one of those days where you just can’t find your groove? You sort of feel like your turning in all directions but can’t figure out where to go? I think we all have days like that. I look at it as falling off track and a small hint that I need to step back and regroup.
What can you do when you simply don’t know what to do? I suggest you start acting like a turtle. I’m not suggesting you hide in your shell and wait if out though. Let me explain.
First this is where having written down your goals helps enormously. Reminding yourself of where you want to end up is a surefire way to getting back on the right track. Most likely you aren’t that far off of it anyway. Taking a break is a good idea too. Any mind that is too busy to focus has too many things flying around up there! Give your ‘bats in the belfrey’ time to settle down by going for a walk or baking some cookies. (See! Cookie Meditation works in so many ways)
If you are really struggling here are two questions to ask yourself.
1. Where do I want to go?
2. What is ONE thing I can do today (tiny or small) that will put me that much closer to my end? (ex. phone call, email, write a blog, join a networking community, offer to help someone)
Now, all you have to do is to actually go and do that one thing.
Let’s face it. The turtle won that race with the rabbit by taking one small step, over and over in a steady pace.
Be the Turtle!
