Writers get stuck. Salespeople get stuck. We all get stuck eventually.

There’s nothing more important to the success of a writer or a salesperson than their mind.

We work so hard to create words or make sales that our minds sometimes go into lock-down mode. No matter what we do, no matter what we try, no matter how hard we push, it feels like we can’t get un-stuck.

Do you know what I mean?

Do Something Else

Let me tell you, the best thing you can do for your career when you feel like you’re stuck is to go and do something else.

Take a break. Get your mind off of writing. Forget about sales. Forget about creating. Forget about prospecting. Get it all off your mind.

There’s a hundred things you could do instead, but let me name a few…

  • Build LEGO’s with your kids.
  • Volunteer to help at your favorite charity.
  • Find somebody in need and help them get unstuck.
  • Take a hot shower and read a good book.
  • Get away on a trip with your family.
  • Go for a walk or take a long nap.

The point is, your money maker (your mind), needs a break.

When you give it a break, it’s like re-booting your computer. When you come back from your break, you’re quicker, smarter, and sharper.

Are you stuck? Maybe it’s time to do something else.
