Do you spend time pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone? Do you intentionally seek to grow in areas where you are uncomfortable? Do you force yourself to focus on things you are not really interested in? To grow as a truly well rounded and balanced person and leader, you need to be doing all three.
Mark Wahlberg is featured in the current issue of “Entrepreneur”. Consider this quote from that article…
“When I was younger, I was able to focus on things I was interested in, but I had no time and no desire to focus on or be disciplined about things I wasn’t interested in, he answered, “And I realized that I needed to be disciplined all around, in every capacity – and that would allow me to become successful, or at least have the best chance to succeed.”
The writer went on to state…As we get older, we don’t become different people – we become bigger people, understanding the many multitudes of things we must consider, and care about, and take on. Our pathway to success isn’t just about going forward, but about going wide.
Take an interest in something new this week. Be intentional about going wide, not necessarily deep.
