Expert Advice on Getting Unstuck? Blow It Up!

Author and marketing guru Seth Godin (The Dip, Tribes, Linchpin) gives advice on “Getting Unstuck” in his blog, aptly titled Seth Godin’s Blog.

Godin concludes his post by writing, “If the only alternative is slow and painful failure, the way to get unstuck is to blow up a constraint, deal with the pain and then run forward. Fast.”

While the “cut and run” method of coping isn’t always the most viable method, I have begun, recently, to understand its value as a life tool.
