With gratitude and kudos to Robin Sacks.

Ever feel like you’re mired in the mud, trudging along and not making much progress? Periodically I have days like that. And when I do, I’m grateful to find a pithy thought that reorients my thinking. Change Your Mind showed up just in time today!

I keep thinking the same thought train that has gotten me nowhere, that’s exactly where I’ll end up: nowhere. To reach a goal when I’m stuck, I need to—paraphrasing George Bernard Shaw—think differently about a situation. Then new possibilities open up! By thinking differently, I might even see a road I hadn’t seen before.

new road

Then I can progress toward my goal.

What redirects your thought train?
