It's an old cliche, but if you want to win, you have to risk. This goes for your career and your day-to-day work too. Here, futurist Merilee Kern speaks directly to challenging yourself to get out of the comfort zone in order to grow and develop new skills. Make discomfort a new habit!
Amid the current climate of societal upheaval, Steve Waters, founder and CEO of CONTRACE Public Health Corps, suggests wholly embracing a state of unease. “Discomfort should be your default,” he points out. “If you’re not uncomfortable, you are not likely to be making significant progress.

Push the actions that drive you out of your comfort zone to the forefront every day, and you are more likely to find greater success.”
