If you ever find yourself stuck with a project, here are some ideas to help you get your mojo back:

Stop

Take a break, do something different, switch off from the task in hand. This works! I don’t want to explain why right now, but it does the trick.

Visualisation

Also known as Guided Imagery. Get in touch with your inner creativity and find out what’s getting in the way, or if nothing is, then how to proceed.

Explain

Explaining your project and how you are progressing to someone else will clarify your thinking (or show how muddled you are). This works well if you are writing your explanation, even if you don’t send it.

Untie something

Doing a symbolic task that mirrors the problem can help sort it out. For example: is you mind tied up in knots? Find something to untangle (gardening is good for this). Ideas for other tasks are: tidy clutter; sort out paperwork (unconnected with the project you are stuck with); take a purposeful walk that represents progress through your project so far, and see where it takes you.

When stuck, don’t waste time telling yourself why ideas like these won’t work, they all do (and that’s just more ‘stuck’ thinking). Simply choose one and do it!
