Too Comfortable?

I like being comfortable, don’t you? Comfy chair, comfy car, comfy job, comfy relationships, comfy routine – who doesn’t like comfy? But what if your comfort level is stopping you from becoming great? What if it’s stopping you from doing great things?

Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – right? Well, if you feel like comfy is “good enough,” then you’re done.

But doesn’t that mean you’ve stopped improving? Isn’t it fun to keep working at making everything better?What might you miss out on because you’re comfy the way things are?

What could your career be like?

What could your marriage become?

What kind of life could you create?

If we get too comfy the way things are, we will never know. It’s really your decision, and neither choice is “wrong.”

Are you comfy and done trying to make things better? That can be a fine life.

Or are you comfy but willing to keep improving things for you and those you care about? That could be a whole different type of life.

Which do you choose?

  1. GREAT points Greg!
    Years ago when I was teaching at a Military Academy, we taught a course in “self-development” and “self-improvement.” One of the key points for the course was encouraging people to “stop making excuses” that delayed their goals for “self-development” and “self-improvement.”
    When discussing a goal of completing a college education, people would frequently say things like, “going to college at night or on weekends to finish college could take as much as 10 years…” And we would encourage them to ask themselves questions like, “Will my age be any different 10 years from now, whether I finish my college degree or not?”
    Once a person realizes that “self-development” and “self-improvement” is an on-going process throughout our lives, the EXCUSES about “how long it will take” to reach and achieve their individual goals are easier to overcome…

    Keep up the great work Greg!

    • Exactly right.

      In ten years we will all be 10 years older. The question is what ELSE will we be?
