"Someone once told me growth and comfort do not coexist. And I think it’s a really good thing to remember." - Ginni Rometty, IBM CEO
After going to college (Go Frogs) and getting a job in a field I had no experience in and in a role I knew nothing about, I have seen just how life-changing being uncomfortable has been to my life. Taking these risks has given the the power to trust not only in myself, but the new adventures that come my way and the results that follow.
As a proud IBMer, I am love this quote because I think it holds true to anyone, any organization, at any level. Lack of comfort and this new Cognitive Era seem to go hand-in-hand, but that is a good thing! As Ginni says, you cannot grow unless you get uncomfortable, but in the end, the results are worth it. Don't you want to keep growing? I know I do!
