Hitting a rut, wall, plateau, whatever you want to call it is inevitable. You can be on a win streak for only so long, before things taper off.
It can happen in a lot of different ways, whether in business, personally, or in my case fitness. When things tend to get tough it is a lot easier to derail and tailspin to the least path of resistance.
Sometimes people respond and dig their way out. And sometimes people need to stop digging. I’ve been around a lot of smart football coaches in my life, and one of them told me once “the best way to get out of a hole is to stop digging.”
Trying to change the scenario you are in can be as easy as deciding what you need to do with a shovel: dig your way out, or stop digging?
