Thoughts of the Week: June 9, 2023
If you can thrive in uncertainty, you can win almost anywhere.
As a rule, most people tend to avoid discomfort.
They shy away from uncertainty, cling to the familiar, and set up camp firmly within their comfort zones. The problem with this approach is that uncertainty is essential for growth. Staying in comfort keeps you small, and it develops a pattern of avoiding expansion opportunities instead of taking a chance.
To push yourself, lean into uncertainty. Keep learning, adjusting, and pushing forward - even when the road ahead is a little murky.
Find a way to go through your uncertainty, take on some spaces you don’t know 100%, and bet on your own ability to figure it out.
1. There’s a massive difference between feeling busy and making progress. The former is a trap that will keep you small, but it requires intentionality to break out of it.
2. Starting a business, thinking about taking the plunge, or in the early stage of scaling a company? This is a must-read…it’s very thin, brass tacks, and actionable.
3. If you find yourself saying “I can’t” or “it’s impossible” often, then it’s time to revisit You Need to Run Through Walls because how you think is your most important ritual.
4. Great visual from @lizandmollie on why perspective matters. You might be struggling right now, but it won’t always feel that way - just keep going.
