When you've been stuck to write on a page that is called Being Stuck Sucks and someone submits their contribution. A lovely, unexpected surprise. And way to set the standard: F*ck, being stuck sucks It sucks! It sucks! F*ck being stuck sucks! In a house In a boat, In a car, In a nicer house In a nicer boat In a nicer car F*ck! Does it suck! Unstucking! Not Mind f*cking Not, Rocket science Maybe, brain Surgery? But I'm not trapped, Its not even a rut I'm stuck It's me, it's myself, I'm sitting in my way So easy now Why stand Sitting does just fine For blocking my way So I'll sit for a while Maybe, something will rescue...
By Andrew J Kehl, MS, CFO, CM The day after perfect is what separates finishers from starters. What a hell of a line! Jon Acuff wrote that in his book, “Finish” and it has helped me immensely in leveling up. I can recall about a million things I have started and haven’t finished. So how can I give myself the gift of done? A good example of how we seem to think in absolute outcomes stems from my ‘75 Hard’ challenge I attempted a few months back. If you aren’t aware, the rules are pretty straight-forward: 75 days straight...gallon of water, 2 workouts (one has to be outside), no cheating with bad food and 10 pages of reading—per day. I...
Like they say on the airplane, you got to breath first before helping others. It's true that helping others rock, but when you're stuck it might not feel like an instant gratification like it can normally. But today my friend, think of a micro-helping-hand. Set aside FIVE minutes to do something nice. Micro steps.

Send a few funny GIFs in a row. Like 10 social media posts with intention. Pick up trash. You might want to continue doing kind things after, you might not. Regardless after five minutes, you've completed today's...
I hear you. Already stuck, and I'm asking you to dream bigger? If money, people or place, was no object, what would you be doing right now? Start with one category you could dream a little in (house, car, friendship, relationship, job). Get specific. There are no rules, don't let practicality to stop you. No one ever needs to see your list. It's terrifying isn't it? This is what my ideal house would look like: - ocean view, but not too close to the ocean for it to be too cool - red door - light and bright, yet private - welcoming of the sunshine, but not of strangers walking by - an inspiring, modern kitchen - a backyard with...
"Think about something else, it will pass" is such an amazing advice, but impossible to follow. Don't think about the color red and you see the color red EVERYWHERE. So let's try this. Let's set a timer for 20 minutes, put your phone away, and read an interesting book.
Don't have an interesting book? Here are some of my faves. My best advice: get a kindle, get a library card and download many books at the time. And you know what? Don't finish a book if you don't like it. Life is too short.
