In her answer to a listener/fan’s question, Marie Forleo provides three proven steps on HOW TO FIND THE MOTIVATION TO KEEP GOING WHEN YOU’RE FEELING STUCK .

Here is a link to the transcript for the session.

A few gems:

“…ambiguity is the enemy of execution.”

“So once you decide what you really want to work on, what is that specific concrete goal, then we need a deadline.”

“(Deadlines) help me keep things simple.”

“…one of the keys for me to stay consistently motivated is to make sure that I’m doing the simple things that make the biggest difference in terms of my energy, my health, and my cognitive prowess.”


Reminder: Side Hustle Spark 133 pointed you toward Chris Guillebeau’s exploration of ‘stuckness’.

Chris Guillebeau, author of The Money Tree, Side Hustle: From Idea to Income in 27 Days, The $100 Startup, etc., and creator of over 1400 consecutive podcasts, also shared his expertise on Periscope.

Five months ago, he posted a session, How to Avoid Getting Stuck.

Skip to the 14:30 mark to listen to him embellish these five suggestions:

— Identify potential problems in advance.

— Always know your next step.

— Impose an artificial deadline.

— Look for an alternative way forward.

— Try something totally different.

[Note: Each of his 30+ minute Periscope sessions also feature a live participant Q. and A. that nails down many of the universal concerns of side hustlers.]
