How To Get Things Done When Your “Stuck”

There are times when we have to get certain aspects of a job done and just cannot. It may be that ideas are not coming, you are not in the best environment or just tired.

No matter the reason, below are some tips to get your work done on time, as follows:

1. Skip it

When you come to a place in your work where you feel like you are not making progress, consider doing another part of the job or project that is easier to complete for the time being. Though it might not seem like much, it is still progress and you are completing other details that you will have to attend to eventually so you are still being productive.

2. Take a Break

Go for a walk, listen to music, see a movie, to give your mind a reboot. Taking a break might be all that you need to get a fresh start. I like to go to a movie, allow your brain to decompress from work mode. Hey go to your favorite Organic coffee shop and talk with friends and stranger. Works for me.

3. Suck it Up

Still feel stuck and you’re close to the deadline? The find another way to just push through. Change your scenery by working in a different location if possible . Also, at times we just have to accept that we are not working at optimal conditions and we just need to power through.

I have done some of my best work when tired and running on empty. You have to make the best of the situation even when it comes to getting the job done.

The Bottom Line

While working in the perfect setting with enough energy to perform at max levels is great, it is not always attainable. If you are a little tired or having trouble completing work, sometimes you have to switch gears. If you have enough time before your deadline, these simple yet effective tips our worth trying to get un-stuck and focused again, go get’em.

Have a terrific weekend.
