Growth sucks sometimes. It’s uncomfortable to do things you’re not necessarily good at. In trying to grow (my latest adventure is learning to play guitar) I’ve come to embrace three things:
1. Productive discomfort. Trying to sit with the discomfort that comes with not being good at something immediately in order to stick with it.
2. Commitment to doing tedious things. For guitar, that can mean practicing scales or barre chords when I really want to practice a song instead. I need to get my foundations set first, even if they bore me a little. 😉
3. Willingness to do something repeatedly over time. You’ve heard it before: practice makes perfect. But I’d tweak it to say practice makes progress, because I hate the word perfect. 😂
