This post/episode was originally published in April of 2018. The following post/show notes are basically copy/pasted from the original post, but the audio is a new take on the subject.
I was listening to the Jocko Podcast awhile back, and he said something that really caught my attention.

Then you better start getting comfortable with being uncomfortable, eh?
