Words to Ponder
Gail Sheehy on Growth

Speaking of James Clear, he shared this great quote in his email newsletter last week from the author and columnist Gail Sheehy:

“If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we are not really living.

Growth demands a temporary surrender of security. It may mean a giving up of familiar but limiting patterns, safe but unrewarding work, values no longer believed in, relationships that have lost their meaning.”
