Do you ever have the experience that no matter what you do, nothing seems to be improving and you get this feeling that you are stuck?
Whether it is with the level of success we have in our business or progress towards a goal, feeling stuck is not a pleasant experience.
Not too long along, I was in such a situation. I had decided to write a series of books around the topics of team performance, coaching and leadership and was making slow progress with my writing. It really felt like I was stuck no matter what I tried to do.
Even when I wrote part of a chapter, I would re-read what I had already written and make a lot of corrections, and I would end up deleting almost the same amount of words I had just written. This seemed to go on for weeks, if not a few months, until I figured out how to turn it around.
