Happy Freakin’ Friday!
(Note: By request, we're posting my "Friday Filosophy" email newsletter here on the blog each week.)
It’s time again for my weekly chat with you with the subject that I’m thinking about – and believe you might want to think about as well. Today that subject is personal growth.
It seems for most people, the biggest impediment to self-development is their aversion to change. Humans really fear change. At some point it comes down to either you hating change so much you live a life of mediocrity, or you hate mediocrity enough to change. My goal is to be a little better person every single day. Every single one. Doesn’t have to be monumental and earth-shattering improvement. (Although it’s great if it is.) But it means I want to be at least just a little better off, a little farther along the journey by the time I go to bed at night. This might mean I gained some knowledge from a book I read, worked out and am in a little better physical shape, or learned a lesson from a mistake I made. (Or even better, a mistake someone else made.) It could be that I developed a loving relationship deeper or forgave someone I had been holding a grudge against.
Growth can manifest itself in a massive number of different ways, but they all involve change. And your willingness to seek out and embrace change. How are you doing on that?

Thought of the Day: You can't stop transformation; it's a continuous, incremental process. You must mindfully choose the forward direction or entropy will force you in the backward direction.
