Step out of your comfort zone

I am often a walking contradiction. As a creature of habit I like sticking to things that I know and am comfortable with. Yet as I grow I and explore what I want I find myself pushing hard to make changes in my life that will make me happier and more fulfilled.

It doesn’t just resonate with me as a person but as a father. My kids know that I will push them to spread their wings and try new things. I tell them that I don’t expect them to like everything but I want them to try.

At the same time I try to do my best to follow the same advice and guidelines that I offer/encourage them to follow.

These videos are a good example of that. It feels a bit strange to me to stare into a camera and just speak. I am not entirely sure why, but I am guessing that it is tied into the slow erosion of anonymity.

At least I suspect that is what it is about. I have made more than a few sales presentations, given eulogies, speeches and done a bit of stand up.

Although it is probably worth noting that all of those involved opportunities where I could see the faces of those I was speaking with. The eye contact and physical presence made it easy to figure out whether my words moved or bored them.
