This blog is about personal transformation and stretching our boundaries. It’s a diary of my own quest to become a more critical thinker and stronger and better version of myself. I want to become more useful and valuable to others. And if I am really open and honest, I also want to stay relevant.
Change- Stretching Our Boundaries
I have come to understand that change, transformation and growth is difficult. It’s painful and it’s challenging. Change is hard. Evolving is frustrating and uncomfortable.
I just started reading Kevin Kelly’s newest book “The Inevitable” Understanding the technological forces that will shape our future. If you are currently reading The Inevitable and want to discuss the book, leave a comment below.
Change is Inevitable
A quote from Kevin’s new book.
We are different from our animal ancestors in that we are not content to merely survive, but have been incredibly busy making up new itches that we have to scratch, creating new desires we’ve never had before. This discontent is the trigger for our ingenuity and growth. We cannot expand our self, and our collective self, without making holes in our heart.
Holes in our heart. Of yes. I agree with Kevin, the path to our “enlargement” is hard work. It’s not glamorous, exciting or even fun at times. But I believe it is necessary.
A world without discomfort is utopia. But it is also very stagnant.
Let’s read it together.
