The comfort trap

So why didn’t you do it before? Because it’s easier to follow. Because it’s more comfortable to stay where we are. […] Next time, take the lead. Not because you have to, but because you can.*
(Seth Godin)

Imagination is one of humanity’s greatest qualities – without it the world would be a very dull place. Let the words of a book guide your imagination, and the spirit of adventure motivate you to set goals, push yourself, thrive in the face of hardship, and achieve epic feats.**
(Richard Branson)

Deep is an investment in the future …
Shallow is more comfortable than deep …
Hunger is expanded by reading …
Reading widely – and journaling …
Training imaginations and creating possibilities …
Living with the grain of the universe …
And the path with a heart.

(*From Seth Godin’s blog: “But we were comfortable.”)
(**From Richard Branson’s letter to young readers, in Maria Popova and Claudia Bedrick’s A Velocity of Being.)
