At least with my career counseling clients, among the most potent tactics for keeping them moving forward rather than stayed mired in,  for example, “No one will hire me,” “I’m so angry at...” or “I’m an imposter” is thought stopping: As soon as you become aware of an unproductive thought, literally say “Stop!” and ask yourself, “What constructive task could I turn my attention to? What’s the first one-second baby step on that task?”

I flesh that out in my article today.
