How to Get Unstuck

It's easy to get stuck.  Or to let anxiety get the better of you.  That’s why a short list of concrete steps can help get you started on your journey back to work.

Instead of dwelling on anxieties or self-doubt, Taaffe recommends action over reflection.

“It’s key to recognize the fear or reluctance but take action anyway,” she says.

In a short but helpful article, Taaffe outlines some basic tips for the tentative relauncher. From recalibrating your assumptions to considering a pivot, she provides a basic yet substantive game plan for reentry.
