Lately I've been stuck. Super stuck. So stuck I can't even begin to get my mind around how to get unstuck. And it sucks. And then this happened...
I had some down time over Christmas so I was actually able to spend some time working on something that I really like to work on...Mighty Petunia. I changed the theme of the website after getting some great feedback from women on the Mighty Petunia Facebook page. They gave me honest feedback on what they thought of the website. It was honest feedback and much appreciated. Some was flattering and some kinda not, but it was all good to hear.
I'm not the techiest person so when the whole "responsive" mobile site thing happened (which makes a website on your phone look like the site on your desktop), I kind of missed it. I thought my site was responsive but it wasn't. What that means bottom line, is the Mighty Petunia mobile site looked pretty crappy. Ok, really crappy. So, I took the plunge and decided to change it. It was waaay easier than I thought it was going to be and the results were awesome. I managed to change it and not screw everything up! SCORE!!!
A couple of days after I changed the site, I was contacted by someone who asked if I was interested in submitting Mighty Petunia tanks for a segment at the beginning of January on a national TV show. UHH OK! So I scrambled and got everything together. Not sure if Mighty Petunia will make the cut, but it won't be for lack of trying! And if it does happen, it will be a great way to start off 2016!
SO the lesson for me once again (I seem to have to keep learning this one) is that a) doing something, anything, usually starts the ball rolling on change and b) working on something I like makes it easy to create change and gets me unstuck. A little success is a contagious thing. I feel like I can start to tackle other areas of my life that are stuck and I'm beginning to feel maybe I'm not quite as stuck as I thought.
Wanna get unstuck? Do something. Do anything. Work on things you like to work on. Change the easy things first. Now's the time. The new year is a great time to make changes. Good luck and Happy New Year!
