Learning to be uncomfortable

Most times I get in to a groove and stay on track. I need routine! This is a really good method actually.

What’s better is forced change or… growth.

In Josh Waitzkin’s book The Art of Iearning, Josh talks about how in his martial arts training he would practice with better fighters. It caused a lot of pain, literally, but it helped him master the art and beat fighters that far out weighed him. He won the 2004 Tai Chi Push Hands world championship.

We don’t welcome change, unless we have to. A better methodology would be to force it once in a while so we are ready when change comes unexpectedly. I don’t even know one “successful” person who has gotten to where they are by always doing what is comfortable.
