Publisher's Summary

We all experience psychological impasse. This feeling of uncertainty about your next moves in life might come at predictable moments: the loss of a job, the end of a romance, an empty nest as your child heads for college, or the death of someone who has long helped you feel recognized, loved, and appreciated. It might also come at unpredictable moments: when the career of a lifetime somehow loses its juice, when you ache for intimacy but can't seem to find the right partner, when you find yourself longing to renew a sense of life's adventure.

Predictable or not, psychological impasse brings with it the sense of being stuck or paralyzed. At the office, you feel stale or unchallenged. In your personal life, you feel agitated, deflated, or downright bored. You know that something must change - and you're desperate to contribute at work, find a reinvigorated role in your family, and dive back into the current of your own life.

Though uncomfortable, impasse is necessary. It's the only place from which you can define a new vision for your life. Now business psychologist and researcher Timothy Butler leverages more than 20 years of research to offer strategies for finding your way from impasse to renewed meaning - at work, at home, with colleagues, and with family. He shows you how to:

  • Recognize the state of psychological impasse and use it as a springboard to real change
  • Participate in exercises that activate your new life vision
  • Identify the activities, rewards, types of people, work cultures, and communities that will most likely satisfy you
  • Make choices that transform your new vision into reality

    Drawing on a wealth of stories about individuals who have successfully transitioned out of impasses, Getting Unstuck provides a practical, authoritative road map for moving past your immediate impasse and defining a meaningful path forward.

      "Get the book too"

      While listening I found myself yearning to have the physical book. The book references itself countless times and my player (ipod shuffle) isn't great for rewinding to re-listen to sections.

      The material is great and I'd recommend you get both the recording and the book to get the most out if it. I wish Audible had a pdf companion feature for the audiobooks we buy. It would have been very handy for this book.

      "Yes, worth the credit."

      Again, if you are into self development series and wish to learn more about what you do, why you do it, and how we get stuck, with some pratical advice on how to Get Unstuck, this one is good. One book with a few hours of listening can't always change your life, but if you read this for a reason, follow up with a few more. The enlightment for the cost is a big gain for you. If you can see where you get stuck, and change even a few things from this one book, you have entirely changed your life. How much is that worth to you?
