Fits like a...sock?
Did you ever get new socks for Christmas?
I did this year.
They were dress socks...so I wore them to work on Wednesday and I thought to myself how good they felt.
They had more than enough cushion and support and when I compared them to my old dress socks...they were hands down...the winner.
They were new...but really comfortable.
So I started thinking about how we typically look at those two choices as either/or's. We usually have to sacrifice one for the other. I am comfortable here...but over there is something new...that actually may be better...but I really don't want to take that chance.
Comfortable v New.
Nope...not going to fall into that trap.
Don't think you have to lose one for the other. Make it work for both. Stay in your comfort zone...but bring a new element into it. Challenge the comfort zone without breaking it. Stretch it..without ripping it.
Comfortable and new. It does work...and it feels pretty good.
Remember Mikey? He tried new things...and always liked it. What was the name of that cereal again? Oh yeah...Life. That's it.
Writer's note; Did you know the Life cereal campaign was one of the longest running consistent commercial themes in the history of television. They were on to something. But...I digress...
