Life can be messy, and situations can be complicated. While some situations can be addressed quickly and easily, many cannot; they require time, planning, and resources.
However, most situations have one thing in common: there's some type of action you can take to at least start moving things in the right direction. And the great thing is, once you put things in motion and you get some momentum going, it becomes easier to take each subsequent step.
Here are some simple but powerful questions you can ask yourself to help identify where and how you can take action to start moving things in the right direction.
You can use these questions to navigate countless situations. Don't like your job? You might not be in a position to resign, but perhaps you can plan ways to upgrade your skills (i.e.: start doing.) Looking to lose 20 lbs and get into better shape? It's definitely going to take time to achieve that, but you can start the process by cutting back on your evening snacking (i.e.: do less of) and extending your evening walk for an extra 10 minutes (i.e.: do more of.)
While an immediate fix might not always be possible, some type of action usually is.
Are you facing a problem situation and feeling stuck? Oftentimes, the lack of motion around a problem can be just as discouraging as the problem itself. Use these questions to help reveal actions you can take to start moving things in the right direction.
