Main Discussion:

Next, we dive into our topic of the day, “Spend More Time in the Hole.”  

Our discussion in this episode revolves around doing hard things.  Making yourself uncomfortable can make you a better person.  Learn by failing over and over again.  Easy choices, hard life: Hard choices, easy life.  Be more mindful about all of your choices and try to make the harder and more uncomfortable choices.

The team also talks about uncomfortable things they have done recently and some they plan to do in the future.

Peter wraps it up with some action items.  Identify what makes you uncomfortable.  Put yourself in uncomfortable situations.  Do it over and over again.  Spend more time in the hole!
