Be Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

Note to future self..

Try to be as comfortable as you can being uncomfortable. Understand that lack of comfort means that your pushing the boundaries of your own comfort zone. Although there should always be a balance and you shouldn’t always feel uncomfortable, the default should be to fill that you’re doing something that you’re uncomfortable with. This means that you’re playing offense and constantly pushing yourself to grow.

Constant change and lack of control over externalities is another great reason to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. We have little control over external factors that might affect our lives so we need to acknowledge this fact and be ok with the lack of comfort that this might cause.

In any case, there’s nothing truly new in what I am saying but I think it’s important to rephrase things in different ways so that they sink in.

Be comfortable being uncomfortable.

Now back to work.
