Uncomfortable Work

Not all work is equal.

Not all jobs will help us improve, even if we have the same title — or a better one — than the last role.

We can seek out work that challenges us, or we stick to what we know and feel safe tackling; comfortable work.

We can rise to meet the obstacles that block our path and take responsibility for doing the job well.

Or we can hide behind other people and hope everything goes to plan.

Taking on work that we don’t know how to do, that makes us uncomfortable, and that forces us to think differently is how we grow.

Seek out uncomfortable work, and progress is unavoidable.
