I was out with a business account last night from the UK. He is the Managing Director of a major Christian media company there. He is younger than me and very sharp. He shared something with me that I won't forget.
"I never want to be comfortable in my job. I always want to be in a position where I'm completely out of my comfort zone."
How completely opposite of our nature?! I have to admit I've been complacent at times - looking for opportunities to be unchallenged.
But it's in those positions where we are not comfortable and insecure that we learn and grow the most.
This year, may I also put myself in a position to be completely uncomfortable and insecure. Why do what I already know to do? I'm just doing the same thing and remaining stagnant. If I were a muscle, the same old workout would not produce any better results.
Thank you, my friend, for sharing something profound with me.
