When was the last time you did something the first time?
Grad students first day back in school after years of working full-time. MBAs starting their full time jobs in a brand new industry. Friends starting a new company for the first time. And many other people taking a leap of faith.
That’s because the feeling you get from doing something new is what rewards us as humans. It’s exhilarating, it’s what makes our work worth while, and it’s the only thing you can do that might change everything.
But we don’t do it nearly enough. Instead we stick to the status quo. We get in patterns and enjoy the routine. We put our heads down and just do our jobs.
But what if you did it more than that? What if you did something that might not work? What if you worked harder than ever on something you care about? What if you invested all of your emotions on something new?
The possibilities could be endless.
