Maybe You're Paused For A Reason

You ever have one of those moments where you just come to a screeching, fishtailing, full-on stop?
You’ve been working on a project, campaign or something that you’ve been pushing forward and putting your time into. And all of a sudden you’re just dead in the water.
And no matter what you do, you can’t move it forward.
Happened to me recently. And it drove me crazy. Then I did something that changed everything. I asked myself “Why?”
Why had this happened?
What was I missing?
Was there a better way to do what I was trying to do?
I looked at it from a bunch of different angles. I stepped back from the project and gave myself some breathing space.
And about 24 hours later the answer hit me like a ton of bricks. It was slick, easier to implement, would save a bunch of money and reduce the risk involved as well.
So the next time something you’re working seems to be going nowhere ask yourself “Why?”.
You may be surprised by the answers you find.
Remember to have fun, make money and change the world.
