Getting Stuck

Hey Guys!

We all get stuck at different points of our building an online business.

The thing to remember is that this is normal.

So don’t get upset, worried or frustrated.

Put your hand to the plow of your work with joy and start digging.

Looking back will give you an excuse as to why you shouldn’t  move forward.

A windshield is bigger than the rear window in a vehicle for a reason.

There’s more in front of you than what is behind you.

Tailor today that which you are called to do, so you will be equipped to take on the day and change what needs changing.

Until next time,

Jim O’Brien

    The most important thing is to get unstuck whether it be with morning rituals, productivity hacks, and a daily list of tasks to do related to the business. A rhythm and a flow are necessary!

    Hi Jim,
    A mentor of mine used that same analogy but used the mirror as to why it’s smaller than the windshield!
    That being said, looking back can sometimes be worthwhile though: reflecting on how you reacted and got yourself out of a repeating situation can be advantageous and the learning experience fruitful.
    Wisdom comes in varied ways!

The windshield vs. rear window analogy is perfect! Keeping our eyes on the future and tackling each day with purpose is key. Thanks for sharing this motivating message. Let’s keep moving forward and making things happen!
