Get Yourself Moving When You’re Stuck


Get yourself moving by using your inner critic…really.

Making time to get yourself moving when a deadline looms and you are stuck in a rut can be a nightmarish feeling, can’t it?

The more you try, the more your mind goes blank. Panic blooms and ideas and inspiration dry up.

Maybe you try brainstorming or mind-mapping to get yourself moving.  Or maybe you stop and go outside for a walk to clear your head.

But back at your desk, nothing comes.

One Tip to Get Yourself Moving:

This has worked wonderfully for me many times. And it’s often yielded creative ideas that help with other projects, not just the one that had me stymied.

It’s an entirely counter-intuitive tip, and that’s its beauty.

The next time you are stuck, consciously aim to create the absolute worst version of what you’re working on.  If it’s a sales page, a blog post, or copy for a press release, go at it with the goal of making it the worst ever.

What this does…

As you may have guessed, this removes your critical inner voice from the stage.  Actually, it enlists this voice to contribute rather than heckling from the sidelines.  What would be a terrible headline for your next e-zine article? Ask your critic and then go ahead and write it down..

Before you know it, the ideas will be pouring out. And as I said, you may be surprised at the new inspirations that come as a result of this counter-intuitive time management tip.

So how will you get yourself moving when you’re stuck, starting today?

Here’s more help…

We all have voices that chatter at us throughout the day. The Inner Critic is one of them. Learning to recognize (and counter) this destructive voice is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. You see, the Inner Critic is a negative, debilitating, and constant presence in your life.  And it’s not just the words. It’s the judgmental tone, the rolling eyes, and the scolding wag of the index finger. Beyond sapping your energy and confidence, your Inner Critic robs you of time and profoundly distorts how you see others and how you feel about yourself. So, what can you do?
