Being Stuck Sucks

What does stuck feel like?

When you feel endlessly busy without real progress, are unsure what to do next, want something more, something different, or just not this… you’re stuck. That stuck feeling is really about being unfulfilled and it happens when we aren’t showing up as our whole selves.


Many of us do this: we split ourselves into different personas depending on the setting or circumstance. We have a work self, family self, home self, friend self and so on. When we do this, we actually put up internal barriers that block the parts of ourselves that are creative, passionate, innovative, intuitive and joyful.


Energy goes to holding up the barriers instead of flowing into our work and lives. We feel drained, bored, frustrated and STUCK!


People who are stuck...

  • Feel like they’re in a hamster wheel, always running, but not getting anywhere;

  • Struggle with clarity on what they truly want out of work and life;

  • End up saying “yes” to things that don’t serve them and “no” to things that could fuel them;

  • Cycle through burnout after burnout, or feel always on the edge of burnout;

  • Stay in the same place far longer than is good for them,

​​​           OR… 

  • Constantly jump from one thing to the next, excited for change, but unfulfilled by the result;

  • Get caught in thought cycles of “could have” and “should have”;

  • Repeat the same patterns of behaviour or decision making again and again.


Realizing You Might Be Stuck

Often, people are fully aware that they’re stuck and sometimes even aware of their own limiting patterns and habits, but just can’t seem to pull themselves out of it.


Einstein once said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” Of course, that’s not the actual definition of the word, but it does seem pretty crazy that so many of us get caught in these repetitive patterns, hoping something will change, but not actually doing anything to create change!


The fact is, if you want something different,

you have to DO something different.

Getting your team or organization unstuck

We can only lead from where we are. If the people in your organization are stuck, they can only lead, create, innovate and produce from that stuck place. Which means… not much momentum. For anyone.


When people are UNstuck, they’re dynamic! They become the kind of leaders that can lead themselves and those around them with clarity, compassion and courage. The kind of people who can transform an organization from the inside out, building more and more momentum with each step.
