#1. Get out of your head If you’re wrestling with something and can’t seem to find a way forward, empty your head into a journal. Turn over a crisp, fresh page and download all that you are thinking and feeling. Write down your perfect outcome, the current situation, your thoughts, feelings, opportunities, risks and fears. There is no need to follow a prescriptive process; just give yourself time and space then allow the solutions to appear.
