What’s the cost?

There are risks and costs to a program of action, but they are far less than the long range risks and costs of comfortable inaction. - John F. Kennedy

What’s the cost of your inaction today? How long will you stay in your comfort zone, essentially fooling yourself?

Time for some self-examination and truth telling!

Here are some ways in which we might be selling ourselves short:

  1. Not expressing love because we feel shy or lazy.
  2. Not saying yes to an opportunity because we’re afraid.
  3. Saying yes to too much work because work is our comfort zone!
  4. Being lazy about our health because the opposite is hard work.

So you see our ‘comfort zone’ comes in many varieties, let’s be aware of them, and assert our will, for what is truly good for us.
