Quote of the Week

“Discontent is the first necessity of progress.”

— Thomas Edison, American inventor

How true!  Whenever I find myself discontented (is that a real word- ?), I realize it’s because I’m bored.  I’ve become complacent.  I am not challenged.  I’ve found that I can sit around and whine about, feel sorry for myself- that I’m not setting any new PR’s, that I’m not vigorously stimulated in my job… OR, I can do something about it!  Create my own challenges, make myself work harder in order to progress.  I’ve said it before and I’m sorry for the repeat… my new goal is be comfortable where it’s uncomfortable.  I want to be comfortable challenging myself, even when it’s hard.  I want to be comfortable setting goals that may seem slightly unreachable.  Because in the end, anything truly is possible, if you only believe (Mark 9:23).
