Why Getting Comfortable With Discomfort Is Crucial To Success

Why Getting Comfortable With Discomfort Is Crucial To Success | The New Workplace | Scoop.it
In an increasingly competitive, cautious and accelerated world, those who are willing to take risks, step out of their comfort zone and into the discomfort of uncertainty will be those who will reap the biggest rewards. When I first left my parents’ small farm at eighteen to move to “the city” [...]

Brian Kirby's insight:

Wow, those questions were not exactly "fun" to answer (especially rapidly and honestly). However, I have always been told that "If your dreams don't scare you, then they aren't big enough". This is something that I have lived my life by for quite some time now, and it definitely appears to be more than true... "If you are always comfortable, then you are never growing." It's worth some discomfort/fear in order to grow and reach goals! Thoughts? How tempting is it to stay under the umbrella of comfort? Is it worth it?

Be the leader who's willing to step outside your comfort zone and lead your team to step outside of their's.

Great scoop by Anne Leong via via @anne_leong.  As a work with a number of clients and continue my own journey through this process, I find the questions listed extremely helpful!


Again and again, we have to decide:

  • Do I keep doing what’s always been done, or challenge old assumptions ad try new approaches to problems?
  • Do I proactively seek new challenges or just manage those I already have?
  • Do I risk being exposed and vulnerable, or act to protect my pride and patch of power?  
  • Do I ask for what I really want, or just for what I think others want to give me?
  • Do I ‘toot my horn’ to ensure others know what I’m capable of, or just hope my efforts will be noticed?
  • Do I speak my mind or bite my lip, lest I ruffle feathers or subject myself to criticism?

The Human Side Of Leadership

The Human Side Of Leadership | The New Workplace | Scoop.it

I prepared for a career in business by taking management classes, obtaining a management degree and getting a job in management. My education was about me learning the basics of business so that I could be successful.

Brian Kirby's insight:

Surveys show that 88% of all people working today feel that they work for a company that does not care about them. By creating caring, empowering, fulfilling work environments, we let our team members know that who they are and what they do matters. When they feel a genuine sense of fulfillment through their time with us, they return home better spouses, parents and children.

Effective time management is constantly making effective decisions to direct your time toward the activities that are most important in hitting your goals, never say you don't have time.

Really a simple concept, yet rarely given much thought. Love the comparison that Bill Gates has the same 24 hours in a given day as the Garbage Man, or even ourselves for that matter... War has been declared on the phrase "I don't have time." This may be what is said, however "I don't have time for YOU" is what the listener (boss, colleague, friends),
