One of my clients really wanted to write a book about grieving. She had a bunch of people who had agreed to write chapters for her. It seemed like a done deal.
“How’s your book coming?” I asked her one day.
“I’m totally stopped. I’ve been stopped for a year,” she told me. “All I need to do is send out an email with instructions to the people who are writing chapters. I don’t know why I’m not doing it.”
“What’s going on?” I asked.
“I received an email from someone who told me how to send out the email. It had detailed instructions on it that I want to follow.”
“OK, so what’s the problem?” I asked.
“I can’t find the email. I’ve looked and looked and can’t find it.”
We talked. In the conversation it became clear that she thought she needed to read the email before she could send out the instructions. The problem was that she didn’t know where the email was.
“Okay,” I said. “Do you want to get this book written?”
“Yes,” she said.
“Then we are going to send out the email right now. Do you know what you want it to say?”
“Yes,” she said.
“Then let’s do this thing. Tell me what you want to type.”
I typed while she dictated. We finished the email and she sent it out. It took about 20 minutes. It was really simple.
Sometimes we complicate things, but we can’t see it ourselves. We don’t know why we are stuck, we just are.
Where’s some place where you’re stuck? You were cruising along, in action, and all of a sudden you come to a halt, and may not have even realized it.
Here’s a way to get back into action:
Just start talking about it. In the process of talking about it, you will see what’s in the way and uncover a little reason why you stopped. Then, you can keep talking and figure out some small action to take that will get you in action and moving along again.
One little action and you’ll be flying…..
And of course… If you want more educational and fun content…
