I wanted to make this post because I can definitely relate to many people when they get stuck and don't know what to do next.
I've had my moments when the thoughts in my head were racing so fast that I just couldn't keep up with them and as a result leave me feeling frustrated and unproductive.
I knew that if I was going to succeed I would have to find a way to overcome that problem so I devised somewhat of a "stuff to do when I don't know what to do" list.
These are some of the things I do to get unstuck:
1. Write a blog post.
What I'll do is go into a forum for whatever niche I'm working with and find an interesting question to answer. I slightly rephrase the question and use it for the title and then do the research and post the answer on my blog.
2. Go to Yahoo answers...
Find a question and post the answer with a link back to my blog or squeeze page in my profile. I don't always post a link to my blog as the source as the answer or solution may be provided by a specific site related to the question.
3. I'll write another email and put it into my autoresponder sequence.
4. Write an article and put it through my personal cycle to get all the mileage and links out of it I possibly can.
5. Write another chapter for a product or create another video.
6. Create an instructional video or slide presentation to drive more traffic.
7. Post a new thread on a forum (like now) or try to offer help where I can to someone else's question.
And when I'm really stuck and just can't seem to get going I go to my personal blog that only I can see and sound off to clear out the cylinders and then get going again.
In case you might not have noticed, the main thing you can do when you get stuck is to...
However, there is one last resort and I'd be sorely mistaken if I left it out and that's...
Get up and go do something else to let the dust settle in your brain, so you can regain the clarity you need to get back to following your plan for internet success.
I usually go spend time with my 5 yr. old and that always works to get my mind off of things and onto something else more important.
Well those are things I do to get unstuck and I hope you get some ideas that will help you to keep the momentum growing in your internet business.
