Let's Get Uncomfortable
It's easy for folks to pump success. How many folks do you work with, directly or indirectly, will tell you the brutal and honest truth about a failure? Not your run of the mill "I forgot my notes for a client meeting," but the kind of failure that makes a person question their own sensibilities, logic and reasoning. Failure and talking about failure, is uncomfortable, isn't it?
I've grown to a point where the fear of not trying something is greater than the fear of failing at it. I can go on auto-pilot, however I'm truly ready to be uncomfortable. That's my sweet spot for growth. If I know I'm going to be uncomfortable, I set forth a more thorough plan, the details are more put together, the timelines more realistic and the goals more attainable.
It's easier to do on the buddy system. Let's get uncomfortable together.
