    How to Get Yourself Unstuck:

    Lead yourself effectively (get your own ducks in a row)
    Build your empathy muscle
    Don’t let stress derail you

    Tiny Habits

    When you’re stuck, use the Tiny Habit Approach
    Developed by BJ Fogg, a researcher at Stanford
    Think about what’s the absolute tiniest step you can take forward, and then commit to taking that step every day

    Tiny habits lower mental hurdles so much that our mental resistance doesn’t kick in.
    -Kendra Kinnison

    Think About a Restarting Strategy

    More often than not, it’s the good things that throw us off.
    -Kendra Kinnison
    I see restarting as just as natural a skill as continuing a routine.
