“Comfort” From Kyle Eschenroeder’s book, “The Pocket Guide to Action.”
— “The best life isn’t the most comfortable one. Yet that’s where our goals tend to lie. Comfort causes depression and anxiety. Action throws us into discomfort. It makes us exert effort and try out the unknown. Consistent action pushes you into a life where you don’t have to borrow from the Kardashian’s drama, where the question of meaning in life is answered by effort, where time works for us instead of against us. All you have to do is push past the momentary flinch — the acute discomfort you feel when you grow.”

This passage made me think about the fact that, just 6 months ago, I would never have considered signing up for an overnight ruck event. Now, I am looking forward to the challenge of it. In what areas of your life can you seek to eliminate comfort? Because that is where the real growth occurs.

Hawkeye joined us 5 min. late because I was not precise enough on map for new parking location. Kenny G. returned for his first post since baby was born and promptly picked up where he left off by working hard and making pax laugh. Good to have him back out. Sunshine shared his stories of the Batavia Tri that he crushed last weekend. We had 4/6 for Coffeeteria @ Arcedium and discussed religion for quite a bit. Great way to start Father’s Day weekend!
