There may be things we like to complain about or tolerations we put up with, but by and large we like things as they are.
Dig deep and these irritations or annoyances produce some type of secondary gain; a justification, excuse or self-handicap. It keeps things safe and predictable.
We're masters at this. At least I am.
Most of us have set up our lives so we're not called out on our stuff. It requires courage to invite our spouse, a team member or consultant to ask the hard questions.
It's why I'm so impressed by those committed to personal growth and self-development.
This week do something that will nudge you out of your comfort zone. That thing you've put off. That difficult conversation. That thing that scares you a little. That thing. It will give you a great feeling that will last far longer than the short-term discomfort.
