Muck can be a whole lot of things—your belief systems, old habits that no longer serve you, clutter, a crazy schedule, muddled thinking or an outmoded image. Whatever your muck is, there are tried, true and dependable methods to get unstuck.
How to Master Your Muck addresses the most common areas where many of my clients get stuck: paper piles, time management, technology stalemates and more. I am here to help you clear the stuff that is holding you back and keeping you from reaching your most fulfilled and thrilling life.
Being stuck has much larger ramifications than being slowed down or even put to a standstill; sometimes you might even go backwards. Have you ever noticed how all your systems depend on each other and everything affects everything else? For instance, you decide to clear out your hall closet. You start emptying the contents and begin to realize that most of the contents belong in other parts of your house. You are really motivated and decide to move things to where they really belong. You start with the five extra pairs of shoes that you left on the floor of the closet. You head off to your bedroom and oops! there isn’t any space in the closet that is their rightful home. Now you are in a quandary, peering into your closet and wondering how in the world you can manage to get your extra shoes stored inside without first straightening out your closet.
Your motivation dissolves. You decide that you just do not have time to tackle all of the areas involved with cleaning out the hall closet, return to the hall closet, place the items back inside and close the door. How long do you think this unfinished project will linger in your mind? I would wager that you would spend weeks thinking that you need to get back in there and finish what you started. Your mind will create many unpleasant thoughts around your organizational skills and you may criticize yourself for months. Additionally, you will dread opening the hall closet door because it reminds you of yet another abandoned task that you would just as soon forget.
Being stuck in the muck can become a roadblock to your success. Muck is a powerful saboteur of creative expression. When you are stuck, it is difficult to bring your unique gifts to the world—you often become frustrated or face financial failure. Muck blocks your ability to be free and follow your heart to live your passion. Clearing the muck or the broken systems in your life will help you learn how to change gracefully and with less effort than you can imagine.
