a2z is a leading provider of powerful event management and marketing software that works, and I have a ball marketing our products and talking about the company. That being said, every so often I stumble upon a technology tool or a set of tips from another company that are so helpful that I just have to share them with everyone else. Today, I hope to provide you with a few things to try out the next time you’re feeling stuck.
- Unstuck: Unstuck is a free iPad app with one purpose; to get you unstuck. Unstuck starts by diagnosing your specific case of being stuck by asking how your stuck moment makes you feel, whether it’s personal or professional and who it involves, why you think you’re stuck, and what thoughts you are feeling during your stuck moment. It then identifies how you seem to be handling your case of being stuck. Finally, it provides you with the right tools to deal with your specific case of being stuck and put you on the path to being unstuck. The tools are extremely useful and are a great way to get your ideas organized so you have a clear approach to reaching your end goal. Many people feel that even talking through their challenges helps them, and this app lets you talk about them in a focused manner. It’s almost like having a personal life coach. I strongly recommend you check it out.
- Social Media: Whether it’s Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or any other social media channel out there, I think it comes in handy when you’re stuck. Think about it. They’re all centralized locations where people share content they find inspiring, amusing, interesting, funny, or helpful. Content is only shared if someone finds it worth sharing. So log on and start searching. It’s likely you will find something inspiring or someone with a solution for a challenge similar to the one you are facing. WARNING: Social media can be addicting and result in low levels of productivity and high levels of distraction. To prevent these undesired results, allow yourself only a set amount of time to explore before you get back to the task at hand.
