“Always do what you are afraid to do”



This is the poster I have printed above the desk in my office.

In the last few years I’ve developed the belief that unless I’m a little bit scared I’m not pushing myself – I’m not trying hard enough. Pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone is so important. All of my greatest achievements personally and professionally have come after pushing myself through some kind of fear. A little bit of fear is often the first sign you’re really onto something great.

Well done to Gavin Aung Than and his comic series Zen Pencils for capturing this and so many other motivating stories and quotes so well and thank you for helping to motivate me every day.
