How to get out of rut!
by Musthafa Ebadi on October 22nd, 2014

I saw a post by one of my close and smart friends on Facebook this morning (see the picture on the side) which basically said that if you are not happy you don’t have to wait for a holiday, an occasion, a season etc to be happy.

You could make happiness happen!

While some of this can be applied in your personal life I am writing this post to give some tips on why you might be feeling stuck in a rut at work.

Here are the 5 reasons why you might think you are making no progress or getting now where with your work life:

#1. Waiting for perfection – Like the picture says you are waiting for perfection to happen.
Perfection is the enemy of progress.

#2. How-focus Syndrome – You are probably suffering from how focus syndrome which is spending too much time thinking  on “how things get done” more than on “what gets done” which in turn paralyzes your progress.

#3. Lack of prioritization and delegation – There is an inability to prioritize or delegate. The belief that you have to touch or do everything is a ball and chain which in turn keeps you tied.

#4. No vision – There is no vision and the day to day urgencies are creating a fog that obscures future objectives and opportunities.

#5. Fear of opinions – You are over-concerning yourself with what other think about your or your actions.
