Recently, I was talking to a young, scary smart CEO friend about what’s truly important and the ubiquitous tyranny being “busy!” He’s been doing a lot of thinking about all this and “It’s almost painful.”
I don’t know if this should count as wisdom (even given that I’m of a - ahem - certain age), so let’s call it one of my lessons learned.
“Painful” is a good sign. It means we are working outside our comfort zone.
If we’re always comfortable, we’re not going to change much, for ourselves, our communities, our country, or our businesses.
And, if I’m not at least a bit confused, I’m not learning anything.
