Are you comfortable with regression?
Daily Insight Video
Today’s thought it about our comfort level with going backwards.
I went on a bike ride today, and it was cold, Oregon morning. I have not been on a ride in a while, and I had a terrible ride. It felt like I was just starting out again, and I definitely felt like I had regressed. As I was riding, I was thinking to myself, this reminds me a lot of business building. In Seth Godin’s book, The Dip, he talks about how there is always going be time, while building your business, that things will hit a plateau.
This is one of the things that I have had to become more comfortable with. When things feel as though they are at a standstill or that they are moving backwards, it is difficult to be okay with it.
However, the more comfortable we are with regression, the more successful we will be in the long run. So, how comfortable are you with regression, and how can you continue to motivate yourself once you are in that place?
