Along our journey, maturing adults get tired of the feeling that accompanies growth and learning.
We start calling that feeling, “inadequacy.”
We’re not good at the new social media platform, we balk at considering a new way to problem solve, we never did bother to learn to play piano…
Not because we don’t want the results, but because the journey will be difficult. Difficult in the sense that we’ll feel inadequate…
Which accompanies all gain.
1. First we believe something can be done.
2. Then we believe we can’t do it.
3. And finally, we get better at it.
It’s the second step that jacks us up.
If you care enough to make a difference, if you care enough to get better — you should care enough to experience inadequacy again.
