Uncommon Questions to Be More Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable


Published on

Life gets significantly more enjoyable when you don’t take it all (or yourself) so seriously. We like to look at life as a series of experiences that gives us the opportunity to learn and grow each day. Sometimes that means welcoming the unexpected (or unwanted) and embracing frustration and failure—celebrating these feelings as a platform for learning something new. This requires being comfortable with the uncomfortable feelings that come with learning something new.

If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re probably in the wrong room. Approaching a room as if you’re the dumbest in it can have profound results, because no matter how much experience you might have in a subject, there is always room to learn and grow. And, Our Uncommon Questions will help you to be more comfortable with being uncomfortable.
