What does it mean to be uncomfortable and why would you even want to be? My book is about helping my readers uncover the Simple Strategies on the Uncomfortable Path to New Opportunities. We need to let go of our Woobies, or the things that bring us comfort, in order to grow. Not to say that comfort is a bad thing, but in order to improve, we need to break out of our comfort zones.
You might be asking: “When is comfort okay, and when do I need to become more uncomfortable to improve?”
Creating goals can be quite uncomfortable. Why? Because when you create goals, you’re accountable for measuring results. Results point to one of two things: success or failure. But searching for reasons NOT to create goals is an exercise in futility. I’ve been in business for over two decades and the professionals who create goals for themselves and commit to measuring their results have higher levels of success and accountability. Period!
The Center of your product and business is probably connected to your passion in some way. That’s fun and comfortable. But the planning and execution are not so much fun. Planning takes vision. Planning takes learning from failure and learning from failure is uncomfortable because most likely you’ll need to change. Whether it’s getting more organized, altering your product, admitting you were wrong, or finding people more skilled in certain areas you originally felt you would excel in.
We need to get out of our comfort zone into a place of learning. When we learn new things, we create better constants. When we create better constants, we enjoy new opportunities.
