Ways To Gain Clarity When You Have No Idea What to Do

When we need clarity about what we want, it can take time to know how to get there. And sometimes, that’s because our goals need to be clearer before we can gain clarity. But even when unsure about your next step, there are ways to gain clarity and progress toward your dreams. Here are some tips for getting unstuck and moving forward.


Do Some Journaling

Writing is a great way to gain clarity. It can help you sort out your thoughts and emotions and what is going on in your life. It’s also a potent tool for identifying patterns that may prevent your goals from coming true.

First, write down everything you think about or feel each day:

  • Good and bad days
  • Happy moments and sad ones
  • Successes and failures

Do Pros vs. Cons List

Pros vs. cons list are one of the best ways to clarify your options. It’s a simple framework that allows you to think through all the pros and cons of each option, with a rating from 1-10 (1 being “this is not an option I want” and ten being “this is an option I want!).

When writing down your pros and cons lists, make sure that you consider how these feelings might change in the future as well.

Consider Transformative Coaching

Therapeutic coaching is a great way to gain clarity. There are different types of therapeutic coaching options available. You can find a coach online, like Ross Mckenzie, or in person. A one-time event may be enough for you, but an ongoing relationship might be better if you want more support and guidance.

Be Honest With Yourself

Consider your motivation for doing something. Answer the following questions:

  • What is your goal?
  • What are you avoiding?
  • What is holding you back from doing it?

It’s important to ask yourself these questions when you have no idea what to do. That’s because this can help clarify how best to move forward.

Clean Up Your Space

Don’t just clean up your physical space. You may feel overwhelmed, and it can be easy to lose sight of what matters most when stressed out. The best way to get back on track is by taking care of yourself mentally and emotionally.

If this sounds like something you’d like to try, here are some ways to clean up your mental clutter:

  • Get rid of all the clutter and junk in your home. Putting things away helps reduce stress by allowing you to get into a daily routine with less pressure (but still as much order).
  • Organize everything so they work together efficiently; this will give you time to focus on other tasks while keeping everything neat simultaneously!

You Can Gain Clarity; It Just Takes Some Work

You may have heard this before, but it’s worth repeating: you can gain clarity. It just takes some work.

It’s not easy, but it is possible to gain clarity when you need help figuring out what to do next. If your life feels like an impenetrable labyrinth of choices, decisions, and possibilities, the good news is that once you’ve figured out how to navigate through it all—which will take time, you’ll feel better than ever.
