Now is when it gets fun…

Posted: October 10, 2017 in Uncategorized

I have made it a point to, get outside my comfort zone. I have taken on work that I was technically qualified for but not comfortable with. Looking for challenges has truly been exciting and sometimes stressful. Recently there was a situation in which the outcome was not as positive as I would have liked it to be, I experienced a slight bit of anxiety and my boss looked at me and said: “hey, this is when it gets fun”.

A long time ago I read an article about Michael Dell. Dell started DellEMC computing and was at one time the 14th richest man in the world. Dell stepped down as CEO of Dell computers but came back. In an interview highlighted in the article, Dell mentions how he came back because he was bored with sailing. He talked about how running his business was challenging and rewarding and after a year sailing was not.

I can’t tell you how many times I have wanted to simply “sail away” but I cannot for many reasons but first and foremost being that I know I need to be challenged and have fun.

Please challenge yourself today. It will be hard and tough and require courage and resolution but the reward is a well-deserved rest instead of just rest. If you want joy, get outside your comfort zone find your limit. If you want perfect joy, get outside your comfort zone, find your limit and crush it. Wash rinse and repeat. You will never be bored or boring.
