Are you in a funk? Stuck in rut?  Same shit, different day? Newsflash: We don’t have to do things the way we always do them. We can do things differently.

This is a a very easy method I sometimes use to help myself think outside of the box and get unstuck. Here is article by Steve Pavlina that inspired me to do something similar.
