Picture this...
Circa 2011. Jim was a friend. A lazy friend. One day Jim, who use to work for me, came by the office to pay a visit. You see Jim was a nice guy, just lazy. (Did I point that out already?) On this particular visit we were talking about the state of my company and I mentioned how I really needed one more salesperson. After a few seconds he said, "Why don't you hire me?" Once the shock of what he said wore off I decided to ask him one simple question, "Would you hire you?" Without hesitation he smiled and said, NO.

The good news is he knew himself well, at least when it came to his work ethic. The bad news is that while he knew this truth, he did nothing to change it.

Think about it…
Do you live in a comfort zone? One that repels change? If so let me tell you there is a brave new world out there. One that will make us feel comfortable and move us to action and ultimately change. After awhile, the comfort zone can really stink!
