"Stuckness" is simply reluctance to take the next small step."
Martha talks about turtle steps - the smallest step that feels like something you can do. At the beginning of a change or the pursuit of a bigger dream or goal, you often have to keep halving the step you plan to take again and again until it feels do-able.
Once you take a few turtle steps, you will start to feel more confident and will gain momentum. Or sometimes you will have to turtle step it the whole damn way.
But tiny steps can take you a surprisingly long way. Way further than not taking any steps at all 😉.
