How many of us have developed a LIFE routine? I can't tell you how many times I've been stuck in the RUTT of ROUTINE. While a habit is a powerful thing to build, it has to be the right habit. We should be in the business of building the habit of stepping out of our comfort zone/routine. When we do this, we place ourselves in a position of learning.
You think you have problems? I don't have problems, I have "opportunities for improvement". We always have areas where we can improve, why not take advantage of every opportunity we have?
In EVERY situation, we can learn... something. We usually learn from positive situations, this is what I call a "Wow, I would definitely do that!" moment. We rarely look at a positive situation and come away thinking we learned something. I call this negative learning moment a "Wow, I definitely would not do that!". Most times these are the learning situations that carry with us longer.
None of these things happen unless we step out of our comfort zone. It's not going to be easy! I'll end with this great quote by John Maxwell.
“If we're growing, we're always going to be out of our comfort zone.”
- John Maxwell
