Happy Monday TechArtista!
This week we'd like to feature an article written about discomfort and shared from a talented writer. As we all know, many people avoid discomfort. In fact, they do everything they can to avoid it. Folks can be too comfortable being pushed or bothered to make a change or improve their lives in a new way (just ask any trainer or consultant). This is perhaps the biggest limiting factor, and it’s habits don't change.
The truth: progress comes from getting outside your comfort zone. Culturally, socially, etc.
Thomas Oppong believes the only time you're growing is when you're uncomfortable and breaks down exactly why it's so important to become comfortable with discomfort. That discomfort becomes a catalyst for progress and enables you to grow in ways you can't if you habitually avoid that which is hard.
So, our weekly challenge: Reach out to one member you have never met -- on Slack, LinkedIn, or better yet, in person -- and step outside your comfort zone. We have an updated roster on the TechArtista website, here.
Have a great week!
Happy Monday TechArtista!
We're excited to tell you about a new friend of TechArtista, the EarBuds Podcast Collective, founded by Arielle Niss who worked at the CWE Farm and now lives in LA. EarBuds sends out a weekly email with a podcast theme and five episodes on that theme, to pod-folk all over the world. It's a wonderful way to learn about new podcasts and/or promote one if you are a host.
TechArtista has been active in the podcast world, working with the 2GuysTalking studio on the first floor, and also co-organizing podcast meetups through a local group named "Radiophiles." To give you a taste of EarBuds' content and this week's theme, we included a snippet below. Moving forward, we'll relay a summary in our newsletter and of course, you may subscribe directly here.
Podcast Theme: Mirth, Chortle, and Guffaw
Curator's Name: Levi Andrew Noe
Why? There are many great podcasts that focus on politics, human rights, world news, etc. and these are all very important, but I think we could all use a good LOL, or even an ROFL session these days. So take the week off and just laugh during your commute, or while you clean your house. Hope you enjoy.
