Sounding boards – have you got one?

There's nothing quite like feeling stuck. You know the feeling: heaps of ideas and questions and issues rushing around inside your head; or you feel you can't make sense of some things; or you can't make a decision because something you can't quite put your finger on, stops you from doing so. One way to move through this state is to have some sounding boards – trusted colleagues or others to run ideas past; to reflect back our own thinking; to question our ideas and take on things; and to offer ideas and advice, as needed. Getting stuck on occasions is no problem at all. Staying stuck is, so use your sounding boards as soon as you can.
