A rut can come in any shape or size. Maybe it’s a relationship that needs a jolt of passion, a job you’re neither inspired nor challenged by, or simply an unhealthy tendency or relationship you can’t seem to shake. Whatever the rut, the underlying thread is a feeling of repetition—and not in the good, practice-makes-perfect kind of way. Being stuck in a rut, professional or personal, can stem from any number of things: fear, a feeling of helplessness, uncertainty, routine, or regular ole complacency.
If you’re feeling trapped in a negative or less-than-gratifying cycle or pattern, it’s time to shake things up and enact a change. First and foremost? Look that rut square in the eye and call a spade a spade. So if you’re ready to take action and unstick yourself from whatever mire you’re in, read on. It’s easier than you think, we promise.
