Step back for a while

Sometimes we get so stuck in our day to day life such that we become the person that is unable to see the wood from the trees.

When we work and work and get to a point of frustration where nothing seems to be moving further, it is possibly time to take a step back, relax, walk away from it all, have a cup of coffee and then come back to it.

The man who invented the post it notes was trying to make proper glue, it didn’t work and so he went home and came back to it the next day. It then occurred to him that the glue which didn’t work had another application. The rest they say is history.

What is not working for you right now? take a step back for a while and come back to it with a fresh pair of eyes and mind, you could actually be on to the next big thing.
