“Someone once told me growth and comfort do not coexist.“ – Ginni Rometty
We talk a lot about sacrifice.
Directly and indirectly it comes up for us every day.
For growth, for goals, for big dreams… how much would you sacrifice for what you want. How uncomfortable are you willing to get. For your family, for your business, for your personal fulfillment as an individual.
We get asked a lot about our steps, our processes, our lessons and takeaways, what’s worked, what we’d do differently, our plans for the future. And we always share all that. (It’s the reason why we did the podcast.)
But so much of where we are at — to get to where we intend to go — really lies in what we have to NOT do, what we have to give up, and what we have to risk.
There is no comfort in growth.
But there is a beauty in intentional discomfort. There is a satisfaction in growing pains. And when you are doing it together, in a partnership or as a family, there is a powerful connectedness in a singular purpose and a shared vision.
