Comfort vs. Achieving your full potential

One of my favorite bloggers is Peter Bregman. You can find his great articles at the Harvard Business Review site.

Recently I had the chance to watch his remarkable TEDx Talk and in it I found he talks about some ideas I have been thinking about for some time. Check it out, it is full of great nuggets of wisdom.


Here is my favorite part:

It is a valid choice to say “I want to stay where I am comfortable”. But it is a trade-off. And the trade-off is: Comfort …. or achieve your full potential

By the way, if you want to check other great TEDx Talks, you can:

a) Check my post entitled: Two amazing TEDx Talks you need to watch.

b) Check my post entitled: Raising kids to be entrepreneurs.

c) Check my post entitled: Why we need emotions to accomplish great things.

d) Check out my TEDx Talk during TEDxWarsaw … (what can I say? … I do think it is a very good presentation 🙂 )

e) Go to the TEDx YouTube channel and just browse throughout the +4,000 presentations there. I am sure you will find something for you.
