For starters, it's never that simple, and yes, that's a consolation of responsibility displacement, of sorts. We do the best we can with what we have and know. It would seem a little brainstorming is in order, to start with, wouldn’t it? Hmmm. What’s the best way to move something you can sense, but can’t touch, or feel, has no discernable physical properties or form, yet you know darn well it's right in your way? It’s a place that challenges each of us in its own right, in very real ways, both personally and professionally.
Sometimes, it seems a matter of weighing and analyzing all options and letting reason unfold, but other times, it seems a matter of stepping forward in faith, not knowing what might be best, and just allowing the fog to clear as we go; kind of a “parting of the red sea” of the mind, watching pieces of clarity come into view as you move forward with intent to conquer the fog. These are fairly typical responses to the sensation of a lack of clarity, but what if I told you that they're counterintuitive? Even habitual, and they can prevent you from actually moving forward, as efficiently as a hamster wheel.
There's generally a root cause to most hiccups like this in our patterns, thinking, lack of direction, productivity, or whatever it is we're struggling with; and if you don't know what that root cause is, you're at a disadvantage. The real problems occur when we remain consciously unaware of that root. We may get moments of reprieve to come up for air now and then, but rest assured, the vicious cycle will start all over again in the name of unconscious habit.
Habit is a sneaky thing. Think of the mind as the most precisely programmed supercomputer of all time. Input equals output when it comes to machines, right? That computer needs a new program to function differently, doesn't it? So do we. You can want something to change all you want, but if your subconscious mind is programmed for the same old, same old...guess what? You got it...more of the same old, same old.
