What it means to be stuck


Stuck is …

… setting goals and making plans but putting off the first step until tomorrow or next week or next year or the moment after the rest of your life is in perfect order.

… making promises to stop drinking, quit smoking, spend more time with your family, bring down your credit card balances, exercise regularly, or be more assertive, breaking promises and felling guilty.

… taking no action to prevent dire consequences to your health or well-being despite repeated warnings from your doctor, your boss, your family and your friends.

… waiting for a catastrophe, a sign, an offer you can’t refuse or until you absolutely, positively cannot “take it” anymore before doing what you knew all along you should and could do.
