Courage Over Comfort:
Tangible Ways to Embrace the Challenge of Every Day

Lisa Nichols
Technology Partners – CEO

Humans are wired for seeking comfort over the uncomfortable. We fear and shy away from anything that may cause us discomfort, pain, possible embarrassment, or social awkwardness. The decision to choose the braver thing, the decision to not go for comfort is not an easy one. In this presentation, we will explore some ways to choose courage over comfort.

Take-A-Ways for the Program include:
The only way to build our courage over comfort muscle is to work it
Set boundaries, task risks, and speak up.
