Are you in a rut? Overwhelmed? Or just plain stuck in the mud?

I’ve been there, we all have. I’ve been stuck for the past three months on this blog. More on that in a bit.

Sometimes when you’re in the middle of the forest it’s hard to see anything but the trees right in front of you. When you’re blinded, it’s hard to find the right answer.

I saw this video, and it got me thinking. Sometimes the answer is as easy as “walking off the escalator”.

Don’t confuse “walking off the escalator” with “go quit the job you hate tomorrow” or “give up on your side hustle” because that’s not what I mean.

What I mean by this can best be summed up by Albert Einstein: The definition of “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

I’ve been stuck with this site for the past three of months. My last post was on February 11th.

It doesn’t mean that I haven’t been writing. In fact, I’ve been quoted and featured at time.com, AOL Real Estate, oyster.com,  trulia.com, cio.com, wisebread.com just to name a few..

I’ve been stuck for reasons I’ll share in the next post but for now, I’m using this post to “walk off the escalator” and get myself unstuck from blogging.

Is it my best post? Absolutely not. (By the way, general consensus is that this post is my best yet).

Is it my best post since February 12th? Yes. It’s also the first step to getting me unstuck and posting here at VOSA on a regular basis again.

Forward momentum can be contagious. Take that first step.  Pick up the phone and make that call you’ve been putting off. Apply for the job you want. Ask that person out. Walk off the escalator!

If you’re feeling stuck, start to think about how you can “walk off the escalator”.

What is the first small step you can take to re-start your forward trajectory?

Could it be signing up for a hosting account and finally start that blog you’ve been talking about for 4 years?

Could it going for a walk/run before you go to bed tonight to start losing the weight that’s been weighing you down for the past decade?

Let me know in the comments below. Thanks!

None of these were "big ideas" but I made money from ALL of them and so can you.
