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.

You will never

Make being out of your comfort zone your comfort zone.

You will never reach your potential, and discover your purpose, by staying in your comfort zone.

Dreams, risk, failure, growth

Mid Life Celebration art 2008
Circa 2008. First business logo sketch. Originally, only four themes were created: mind, body, spirit, work. The colors; grey matter, brown as median skin color, red for blood, and green for USA dollars.

Dreams require risks. Risks require failure. Failure enables growth. Growth enables dreams.

The beauty of letting go

Letting go: Eliminating a fear of heights was never a goal, but a remarkable transformation happened serendipitously.

The beauty of letting go.

Surrender.

Confidence.

Humility.

Strength.

Growth.

Mindset.

Freedom.

How is Podcasting affecting you?

Disney podcaster jeff noel
Recorded “If Disney Ran Your Life” from our side porch yesterday.

If writing is great for self -reflection, what will podcasting do for self-reflection?

For starters, the auditory consumption of a person’s thinking is different from, and compliments, visual consumption.

The difference is not only in the medium, but also in the ability to consume. You can listen while driving, walking, doing routine chores – the freedom from having to focus on a screen opens up interesting possibilities.

And then there’s the enhanced perception of voice tone, inflection, laughter, dialouge with another human (Podcast host). 

Speaking and recording live on a podcast also eliminates the thoughtful and careful editing that writing inherently provides. 

Exciting growth that is new, challenging, motivating, and fresh.
