Always Be Challenging Yourself

Make it a point to actively engage in something interesting but unfamiliar to you throughout your life. Something fun and challenging to learn. Something that requires dedicated attention and has the potential to bring unique fulfillment to your life.

Start with your interests so you can tap into your creative energy and keep it activated. Make it something unfamiliar so you can constantly have something to work on beyond the edge of your current ability. Not only does this promote an essential humility, but it also keeps your mind sharpened against the dulling effects of comfort and predictability.

Skill-based activities like a sport, an instrument, or a new language are great examples of this. Find a new one you’re interested in and engage with it. That unique combination of desire, confusion, and frustration is important to our lives. It’s a compelling cocktail of emotions that will keep you off-autopilot and on a mission.

You don’t want to run from that. You want to run toward it whenever and however you can.

Everything is training for something. Do the work.
