Comfort will ruin you

Email is on the way out. Gambling that text lists replace email lists.

What makes us comfortable is ruining us as we speak.

What makes us uncomfortable is the only thing that allows us to grow.

Like onions, there are layers to the first two statements.

Most of us are creatures of comfort.

We strive to make our living conditions comfortable. Nothing wrong with indoor plumbing and air-conditioning.

But what about our habits?

Avoiding risk, setting a low bar for achievement, believing balance is a myth, waiting to be picked.

Comfort provides stability, predictability, and well, comfort.

And it ruins us. Stagnates us. Destroys our growth.

Growth only occurs with discomfort.

Read that again, growth only occurs when we are out of our comfort zone.

You are welcome.

Balance (yeah right)

Prevention is the best cure

Work for a Company like Disney for 30 years and try to not be over-focused. Island time. Ever heard of it? It’s a cool place.

Prevention is the best cure.

Prevent what?

Burnout, and everything that burnout attracts.

So yeah, prevention.

Takes focus and discipline.

Be a beast at focusing on the basics.

Be relentlessly disciplined to keep your eye on the ball.

The ball, by the way, is the basics.

Everything Is Important

What can only you do mentally?

Be the brightest light.

What do you need mentally that only you can do?

  • Enthusiasm
  • Be an example, not a warning
  • Choose my thoughts, and choose my…
  • Friends
  • Media
  • Choices
  • Reactions
  • Standards
  • Mindset
  • Hopes

Mental attitude is about the structure and process we put into our thoughts. What we say yes to and what we say no to.
