Do Something Slightly Uncomfortable, Today

My comfort zone can be a trap. Like a big sagging hammock, it can pull me down and lull me into a satisfied stupor. When I recognize the problem I can usually drag myself out by doing something outside the zone. Jumping on a trampoline, walking in the rain, reading an author who I don’t really appreciate … A couple hours of uncomfortableness reminds me that the status quo and stability lull me towards mediocrity. In order to be near my best I need tension in my thoughts, my actions, my intentions and my expectations.

Taking someone or something for granted or being taken for granted is disrespectful and destructive. Add some spice. color, absurdity to add friction and see  if any of the sparks light a new approach.

Simply walking in the rain can make you taller, sharper, handsomer, quicker …

  1. I’m considering taking on a new position that may lead to a change in my career. It’s daunting, but exciting at the same time. I’m also meeting a VIP tomorrow and my anxiety is through the roof, but I’m going to imagine myself walking tall in the rain!
