  1. Before I can even move toward a significant goal, I need to get smaller stuff out of the way. It’s akin to making a clearing of sorts. I also like to say ‘hello’ to the obstacles — a way of acknowledging them so they don’t overwhelm me. And when I am stuck midstream, I remind myself that it’s okay to take a break. Like I suggested in my post re: edges, the breakthroughs so often come when I stop pushing too hard. (Speaking of which, I’m still blushing from your comment.)

    • I like to get the small stuff out of the way first, too. And yes, giving yourself permission to take a break takes the pressure off (even if that pressure is purely self-imposed). Those breaks usually end up giving us new perspectives and new approaches to tackling what has stopped us in our tracks.

  2. Make lists.
    Focus on one thing at a time.
    Keep trying.
    Ask for support from loved ones.
    Visualize success.

    Sorry to say, I don’t always practice these, but I think they help when I do.

    • Tina, I like this. I especially liked the vision board that you talked about on your blog yesterday. Great idea!
