People who avoid discomfort create more of it. Discomfort can be delayed but that only makes it grow deeper and harder to climb out.
How often are you faced with choice to either have a difficult conversation or put it off to another time? How often do you hope, do you wish, that a situation will “work itself out” without you needing to get involved?
When we avoid discomfort more often than not we make the situation worse. When we delay that tough decision or that challenging conversation, the ultimate solution often becomes more difficult with time.
We must press pause to get our minds right, but then we must step up. We must act with purpose because making a difference requires action.
