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.

A cluttered mind leads us to the following thought by Bill Gates, to a fault…

Most people overestimate what they can do in 1 year and underestimate what they can do in 10 years. —

The most exhilarating exercise in joyful, lean living

Walt Disney World Map
This run two days ago was stunningly joyful.

 

When we are not busy living each day, we are busy dying each day. Either way it happens a day at a time.

If you aren’t preparing to die, you are failing at living well.

Most things have two fundamental choices.

  1. Do it or don’t do it.
  2. Believe it or don’t believe it.

Having our affairs in order is the most exhilarating exercise in joyful, lean living.
