3 Questions to Consider to Help Get Out of a Rut

Ever read a sentence or two, and it just stopped you in your tracks? 

This quote from Seth Godin’s blog did just that for me:

“Ruts don’t dig themselves. Most of the time, we’re in a rut because that’s precisely where we put ourselves.”


Sometimes it is easy to feel lost professionally and personally, but in just reading this statement, here are a few questions I have been thinking about:

1. What is a current situation that I am less than satisfied with?

2. What things have led me to that situation?

3. What things can I change on a daily basis to lead to me a different path?

When we think of “change,” we can get caught up in thinking a “mass” change will make the difference.  But as James Clear says, “You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results.”  

The most satisfying “change” we can encounter is the change we make for ourselves.
