Getting Uncomfortable With What I Want

On Monday, the first sentence of G’s blog said, “Discomfort is the price of growth.”  This little nugget has been sitting with me since I first read it.  In fact, this might be my new mantra, the headline of 2020 or maybe it’s just the entry fee to something better? The reality is that when…
