number fifteen: abandon comfort
almost by definition, the ideas of growth and evolution are antithetical to any notion of comfort. Any area in which you are content to simply wallow in an established state of affairs, is one where are not pushing yourself.
The area of physical and mental activity which is your normal or current comfortable domain is almost certainly some minuscule slice of what your total capacity for free action actually is.
Which is not to say that you must never enjoy a rest or some luxury now and again, and it’s hard to find something that can’t be put to some constructive use, or interpretation, but again, it’s a matter of intent. If you’re out to kick back, veg out and stop thinking, questioning or watching, you have Lost the Plot.
