“The key to pursuing excellence is to embrace an organic, long-term learning process, and not to live in a shell of static, safe mediocrity. Usually, growth comes at the expense of previous comfort or safety.”
“Static, safe mediocrity.” Just those words alone make my skin crawl. Learning, and being willing to change because of what you have learned, is key to breaking free from the trap of “static, safe mediocrity.’
So what are you going to go learn today? Not just a check the box thing where you can say you learned something new. But what are you going to go learn that has the power to challenge the status quo or how you think?
If you don’t seek to learn something new daily, something that challenges you, you are well on the path to “static, safe mediocrity.”
